Promoting Health and Strengthening Relationships Through Sports Activities

To promote employee health and build positive community relations, the Khanom Power Plant organized activities that facilitated relationship-building between the Power Plant employees and surrounding communities. Activities organized included the “Sports Against Drugs Ban Pret @ Khanom District Cup” event, the “Ban Kwang Pao @ Khanom District Football Cup” event and a football competition that aimed to facilitate relationship building between the Roi Et Green Power Plant, Bo Thong Wind Farm Company Limited, and the Rom Klao District Municipality.

In addition, all EGCO Group power plants also organized sports events to promote relationships between employees from different power plants. These sports events function as networking and team-building activities that also promote physical activity and good health among employees. In 2022, some of the sports events EGCO organized included a football competition between the Roi Et Green Power Plant and ESCO, and another football competition for employees within Roi Et Green Power Plant.

Promoting Health Within Power Plants

Every EGCO Group power plant maintains a policy to promote good employee health through regularly organizing sports activities that employees can participate in.

Meanwhile, the Theppana Wind Farm Power Plant, the Chaiyaphum Wind Farm Power Plant, and ESCO host early morning exercises before work hours.

This drill was a collaboration between Khanom Power Plant and relevant authorities including Khanom Gas Separation Plant, and Marine Department, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province. After the drill was completed, the results of the drill were analyzed to revise the response approaches for future incidents.
