ESH Principles

Jusung Engineering takes the initiative in making eco-friendly products and engaging in other environment protection activities. Making the protection of the environment, safety, and health the essentials of our business, Jusung Engineering has set its own environment, safety, and health (ESH) management standards that are stricter than legal requirements, and has pursued ESH management as follows:

  • 01. We regard ESH as the core elements of our management strategy, develop targets and action plans based on ESH principles, and pursue corporate-wide ESH management.
  • 02. We set and comply with our own environment safety management standards based on environment safety-related regulations and International Conventions 14001 (EMS) and 18001 (OHSAS) in order to keep improving the level of our environment safety management.
  • 03. We promote the safety and health of all employees and create a pleasant work environment through continuous improvement and scientific prevention of potential risk factors.
ESH Management System

Making the protection of the environment, safety, and health the essentials of our business, JUSUNG ENGINEERING's business system has been certified by ISO14001 (environment) and OHSAS18001 (safety and health). We set, implement, improve, and continuously develop our own management standards that are stricter than legal requirements.

Waste Management

JUSUNG ENGINEERING has introduced recycling equipment in an effort to reduce and minimize waste produced during the R&D process and has participated in resource recycling through the separate treatment of general industrial waste. We strive to reduce waste through the regular monitoring and analysis of waste volume and the improvement of our facilities on a continuous basis.

Designated Waste Treatment Volume
2012 2,488ton
2013 1,741ton
2014 892ton
Hazardous Chemicals Management

JUSUNG ENGINEERING identifies environmental hazards and the human impact of hazardous chemicals used in R&D through conducting environmental impact assessments and chemical hazard assessments to manage hazardous chemicals under stricter guidelines than those required by the Chemicals Management Act. Furthermore, we implement special training for employees handling chemicals and business-labor joint preventive inspections to contain chemical accidents. We have the chemicals safety health manual (MSDS) available on site for everyone to access while managing an electronic registration system in parallel.

Response to Climate Change

JUSUNG ENGINEERING developed its medium-/long-term improvement strategy in 2010 to reduce energy use by phase in line with the government's greenhouse gas reduction policy, international trends, and demands from national/international stakeholders. In addition, in accordance with the Energy Use Rationalization Act and our status as an energy and greenhouse gas target management business, we manage targets of greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption and carry out energy diagnoses in cooperation with a specialized agency every five years.

Environment Contribution Activities

JUSUNG ENGINEERING actively participates in community environment cleaning activities in partnership with the local government (Gwangju Municipality, Gyeonggi-do). As part of the waste reduction campaign by Gyeonggi-do, our employees regularly clean the 2km-long access road to our HQ and clean the Gyeongan Creek area as needed.

Realizing an Accident-free Worksite

With safety and health first and foremost in our management philosophy, JUSUNG ENGINEERING has conducted various zero-accident campaigns including announcing the Safety Golden Rules, conducting a corporate-wide risk assessment, implementing the construction approval system, holding mandatory safety training for visitors, and creating Joint Safety Check Day. We also offer tips for emergency behavior, practice emergency preparation and drills, and set standards stricter than the legal requirements to fulfill our responsibilities and obligations. We will keep developing into a company that makes people happier through our global top products and safety and health activities by ensuring that an autonomous safety culture takes root within the organization.

Safety Consciousness (SGR: Safety Golden Rules )

To focus on preventing possible safety accidents at our worksites, we announced the core safety guidelines that all employee and stakeholders must follow and applied the 'Safety Golden Rules' to maintain our status as a zero-accident business.

Equipment Safety Certification

JUSUNG ENGINEERING utilizes an equipment safety certificate system for equipment supplied to customers in compliance with national/international standards to ensure both safety and reliability from the stages of design to manufacturing and usage in the areas of human engineering, machinery, electricity, chemicals, and health.

Safety Activities

JUSUNG ENGINEERING has implemented various activities to prevent accidents and maintain a pleasant, safe work environment by removing and improving hazard factors on site. We conduct hazard assessments to identify and improve potential risk factors, apply our construction approval system to review the safety of construction work and minimize unexpected situations, and institute the business-labor Joint Safety Check Day for a circular safety check at our worksites. We have also adopted the CR (Camera Report) system to prevent past hazard factors from repeatedly appearing while applying stricter standards than the legal requirements, e.g., our safety and health campaign, safety and health awards, and penalty point system.

Strengthening safety and health education

In order to emphasize the importance of safety and health activities and prevent safety accidents, we run a safety and health education program customized for different employee levels, and community members (including students visiting the company) if necessary, in various areas such as industry safety, electricity safety, gas safety, and fire safety). In addition, to raise interest in safety and health management and safety awareness among vendor employees, we make it a rule for them to participate in offline safety training on their first visit (refresher course training after six months).

Health Activity

With safety and health first and foremost in our management philosophy, JUSUNG runs various health programs for employees to prevent occupational diseases and maintain a healthy life by providing a pleasant work environment. We invite a third-party professional agency to conduct a 'work environment assessment' twice a year (first and second half) to check if employees are exposed to hazardous elements at all worksites, while supporting an annual 'regular health check' for all employees, 'special health check' for R&D employees (including production), and 'total health check' based on employee tenure.

Health Promotion Activities

For its employee health promotion activities, Jusung Engineering operates an in-house clinic twice a month (by inviting doctors and nurses) to provide medical support such as health consultations, blood pressure and diabetes checks, and body fat measurements. In addition, we provide our regulatory annual health checks (general, special) in house in collaboration with a medical institution to ensure a higher check rate and increase convenience for our employees.
