Safety Health Environment (SHE) Policy
SK on Co., Ltd. (“SK on”) applies a SHE management system throughout its businesses. SK on’s environmental policy on key items is as follows.
Throughout its production activities and business facilities, SK on defines ‘environmental management’ as its core task and preserves the global environment by reducing GHGs and minimizing pollutants. To minimize the impact on the environment of its production activities and business facilities, SK on has introduced and operates an environmental management system, and systematically manages the entire process covering goal-setting, planning, execution, and improvement of environmental management.
SK on, in contracts with construction (works)/service suppliers, conducts SHE evaluations and selects suppliers according to its ‘eligible supplier registration criteria table’. Evaluation items include SHE management and system, SHE training, SHE regulations and procedures, accident management and emergency response, safety & health activities, legal compliance, number of industrial accidents, etc., and where a supplier is subjected to a sanction of one year of transaction suspension or higher due to SHE problems, SK on re-conducts the SHE evaluation at the time the sanction is terminated and re-determines the supplier’s eligibility.
SK on, to prevent environmental pollution which can occur during the storage and transportation of a product, systematically manages not only the operation of environment-related facilities but business partners performing the relevant job. SK on has established and operates operational standards related to air, water quality, wastes, soil, marine environment, and GHGs, and so that there will be no SHE incidents among the business partners, provides related information and training and periodically inspects the progress of work, thus preventing environmental pollution.
SK on, to minimize wastes from production activities and efficiently dispose of wastes produced, has established and operates standards for their storage, transportation, disposal, etc. All teams of SK on’s plants estimate the annual amount of waste produced and prepare plans to reduce the amount by considering the previous year’s waste disposal, and self-manage their performance each month. Also, they perform storage and transportation under the aforesaid standards according to waste types, and strictly manage waste contractors so that the latter dispose of waste legally
During periodic maintenance, SK on gives priority to SHE matters in decision-making related to maintenance, regardless of the length of time or cost required. The department in charge of work site SHE management establishes a safety management plan enabling safe periodic maintenance and, also, establishes an environment management plan including disposal of waste produced through maintenance, trains site supervisors and business partners on the foregoing, and periodically checks the compliance of the foregoing during maintenance.
SK on, when implementing a large or medium-sized project, systematically conducts SHE management necessary for the EPC stage. At the project launch stage, SK on identifies SHE items to be reviewed and the stakeholders, and appoints personnel in charge of SHE matters according to the project size to establish SHE plan and SHE training program for the project. At the project execution stage, SK on conducts, together with business partners, SHE meetings, risk assessments, operation permits, environment management, etc., and periodically performs site inspections. At the completion of the project, it prepares the ‘SHE evaluation sheet for the business partner’ and reflects the same in the ‘investment project completion report.’
SK on sets management goals and manages performance for sustainable improvements under the health control policy for the work related diseases of the employees.
To this end, SK on conducts regular employee health checkups and work environment measurement to manage and improve the results, and the goals and results of the health support for employees are included in the management plan and reported to the board members.
