Occupational Health Services
The physical and mental health of employees is a key indicator of corporate sustainability. ABC conducts health checks for new employees, and after one year of employment, employees are scheduled for regular health check-ups, exceeding current regulations. ABC provides special health examinations to workers engaging in particularly hazardous workplaces (such as noisy, dust, and ionizing radiation workplaces). Adequate medical information is provided for individual cases that require follow-up management after being examined and determined by the doctor. ABC's occupational doctors and nurses visit the factories in Taiwan headquarters six times a month and arrange at least 2 hours of health-related activities. The content includes the analysis and guidance of health check-up results, health education, health counseling and assessment, health promotion, assessment and improvement suggestions for workplace environment, assessment of resumption of work/transfer after injury or illness, regular reporting to employers, and suggestions for labor health services to maintain employee health. In 2022, the number of general health check-ups was 178, with an achievement rate of 100%. The number of special health check-ups was 39, with an achievement rate of 100%.
