Occupational Disease Prevention

We arrange medical checkups for prospective, existing and outgoing employees based on their exposure to health hazards depending on their specific position. In 2020, medical examinations were provided for 3,506 staff members working in special positions to investigate and eliminate hidden risks. Every year, a professional third-party agency is engaged to conduct onsite occupational hazard tests, examine the different types of occupational hazards in each position, analyze occupational health hazards, and implement well-targeted countermeasures.

Work Safety

We regard work safety as the foundation of the corporation. We have strictly abided by the requirements of the Work Safety Law of the People's Republic of China and other relevant laws and regulations. In order to create a solid safety assurance for developing the Group into a world-class enterprise, we have established a comprehensive safety management system for consolidating our work safety foundation. We have actively promoted safe production on culture. The Group set up a safety monitoring department which is independent of the entire production system. The safety monitoring department strictly requires all of the Group's departments to operate according to work safety requirements, attach importance to training staff in work safety, improve equipment, automate inputs, eliminate safety hazards in the production process, and eliminate safety hazards at the source.

Occupational Health and Safety

We ensure the safety and health of employees by providing staff training and physical examination services and a diverse range of leisure activities. Special support is offered to employees in need to build a favorable and enjoyable work environment. The Group has installed "low-noise centrifugal air cabinets" to reduce the temperature of air supplied at manual workstations in plants, effectively improving the working environment for employees. In addition, fitness facilities have been made available at each subsidiary to promote physical well-being among staff members. We have consistently broadened living spaces for employees, and improved the quality of life for them by organizing various forms of entertainment and sports events to celebrate International Womens' Day (March 8), Youth Day (May 4), corporate anniversaries, and the Mid-Autumn Festival. Donations and special support are given to employees with special difficulties to create a positive and healthy atmosphere and moral attitude, building a strong sense of happiness and belonging among staff members.

Environmental Management

While strictly adhering to the Environmental Protection Law of the People's Republic of China and other relevant laws and regulations, the Group has gradually implemented the Quality, Environment and Occupational Health (QEO) certification across the entire group to ensure that our environmental management is scientific and effective. As the end of 2020, the ISO 9001 quality management system, ISO 14001 environmental management system and OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety management system had operated effectively at many subsidiaries of the Group, while pipe and fittings products of the Group have received China Environmental Labeling Certification. The Group has introduced a series of regulations and control documents such as the Water Pollution Prevention Management Regulations, Air Pollution Prevention Management Regulations, Noise Pollution Management Regulations, Waste Management Regulations, and Environmental Protection/Safety Accident Emergency Response Plan, to thoroughly assess the impacts on the environment and enforce strict control and management measures, ensuring effective environmental management.

Energy Management

In order to assist the State in realizing its promise of "hitting peak carbon emissions by 2030 and attaining carbon neutrality by 2060," the Group strictly complies with the requirements of relevant laws and regulations such as the Energy Conservation Law of the People's Republic of China. The Group strives to improve its energy management through supervision and technical means to reduce energy demand and improve energy usage efficiency. We are speeding up the supply of clean energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions so as to help alleviate problems brought by climate change and contribute to reducing carbon emissions throughout society. We have compiled and rigorously enforced the Energy Management Handbook as well as procedural documents concerning the energy system, built an energy management system, conducted energy management work in a systematic fashion, continuously pushed forward certification of the energy management system, and further systematized, institutionalized and informatized energy management operations. In 2020, we maintained our overall energy consumption target of consuming 39 kilograms of standard coal or less per tonne of products and passed the ISO 50001 energy management system certification.
