Occupational Health and Safety Overview
Why is this Important?
EGCO Group realizes the significance of occupational health and safety and is aware that electricity generation operations could pose a safety hazard given that insufficient protection is not addressed. It could damage the employees, partners, subcontractors, and other relevant parties, as well as machinery. EGCO Group therefore established mitigation and support measures to safely perform power generating operations e.g. occupational health and safety management manual, which is implemented, monitored, and inspected on a regular basis. The company also provides emergency response plans, training courses and drills, a review of the plan, inspection of equipment and alarm systems, to facilitate the employees to implement their work in accordance with the manual stringently.
EGCO Group encourages its power plants to adopt international safety standards e.g., ISO 45001: 2018 standard to minimize and control the risks to employees and relevant parties to ensure maximum operational safety and to build trust and credibility to external stakeholders e.g. communities surrounding the power plants, customers, and shareholders. Currently, the ISO 45001:2018 certified power plants include Khanom Power Plant, BLCP, NED, Star Energy (SEG), Xayaburi, Boco Rock Wind Farm, Nam Theun 2 (NTPC), Darajat (SEGSD), Salak (SEGSD), and Paju, which bring about EGCO Group’s occupational health and safety advancement. The continuous improvement of workplace safety and hygiene would also contribute to business sustainability in the future.
