Improving Health and Wellness of Employees and their Global Communities
In 2018, Giti Tire continued to attach great importance to the occupational health and safety of employees, and based on considerations of the efficiency of factory operation, implemented further improved health and safety management techniques. All factories utilize OHSAS18001 occupational health and safety management requirements and safety production standardization certification to make safety the top priority of its facilities.
In order to enhance the awareness of employees' safety at work and achieve its goal of no injuries, Giti incorporated its "Giti Tire Environmental Health and Safety Management Guidelines", into putting forward an internal audit of environment, health, and safety to improve the overall performance of the group's related activities. In addition, Giti has set up an online training platform for its EHS network, offering a number of professional courses related to environmental health and safety, which enhance the knowledge and skills of group managers and EHS professionals.
The company has also developed and built an internal sharing website for environmental health and safety information, which is also conducive to better information communication, data collection, and experience-sharing among employees. Giti also established a reward mechanism for the group's environmental health and safety. The annual environmental health and safety leading factories, teams, and individuals earn awards that have been set up to encourage employees to take an active part in the construction of safety culture. At the same time, Giti Tire holds best practices of communication and sharing every quarter, so that factories can learn from each to improve all levels of environmental health and safety management.
The EHS department also sends emails to all employees every two weeks, including short journals and training activities relating to environmental health and safety knowledge, which helps to better educate team-members. Only through utilizing all methods and activities can the company maximize the awareness of employees' health and safety and achieve the purpose of education.
