12 PSM Elements to Practice
Advancement of SHE Qualification
SK hynix reviews the pollutant (emission) of Gases/ Chemicals in advance to promote and ensure fundamental safety assurance from the design/ production stage of the equipment (facility) and operates the SHE Qualification system that pre-examines activities and processes before operation. SK hynix permits equipment use after proposing criteria about the safety measures for each risk factor by providing SHE H/W Requirement Spec in the case of an initial purchase of the equipment, by performing a pre-check through technical reviews before warehousing the equipment as well as third party certification, etc. and by conducting an inspection before operation about whether the equipment has been safely set-up after warehousing the equipment. In addition, when changes are made, such as modification or changing of equipment during operation, the equipment is inspected before implementation and operation to secure safety.
Operation of SHE Experience Education Center
SK hynix has conducted safety, health and environment education in the best interests of its members and regional societies in terms of safety, health and environment issues. The focus of education has changed to direct experience and away from theories.
The company has extended the targets of education from its members to cooperative companies and outside visitors. To cultivate safety awareness and strengthen its ability to cope with disasters and accidents in advance, the company has operated a space to experience various safety rules and learning facilities to experience fire-fighting and evacuation techniques.
Action Plan for Emergency Response
SK hynix operates a central emergency room which provides 24 hr surveillance of safety/ fire protection systems and has prepared for all emergency situations through actual/ simulation training on a frequent basis over several years. Emergency Control Tower (ECT) is operated as an initial response measure and the protection of human life is its top priority in the event of an accident in addition to securing the safety of the workplace as well as the surrounding local community. Also, we have secured the ability to take action through the establishment of response procedures and emergency evacuation/ response training for each type of accident (fire, Gas, Chemical, etc.).
