The 2019 International Conference on Implementation of Occupational Safety and Health Management Systems was held for 2 consecutive days, beginning October 8, at the International Conference Room on floor B1 of the Xinzhuang Joint Office Tower. Deputy Minister of Labor (MOL) Lin Ming-Yu made a special appearance to deliver an opening remark. International occupational safety and health management system experts Charles Corrie and Elena Mansilla, as well as directors of environmental safety and health in high-performing domestic enterprises and OSHA representatives, were invited to the conference to share information about the actual implementation status and provide specific examples of management systems. Through international exchange, the conference helped enterprises to promote advancement of management system operations, and to create a safer and healthier environment together.
In his speech, Deputy Minister Lin said that the MOL has been promoting Taiwan’s unique Taiwan Occupational Safety and Health Management System (TOSHMS) for more than 10 years. The occupational accident rates for enterprises verified by the management system are significantly lower than those of other enterprises in the same industry. This shows significant achievement in safeguarding occupational safety and health. As a result, the MOL will continue to promote the establishment of systematic occupational safety and health management systems at enterprises; and the Ministry will continue to uncover potential workplace hazards and eliminate risks. By doing so, the MOLwill establish a quality labor environment and reduce the occurrence of occupational accidents.
This year's conference focused on international exchanges, experience sharing, and two-way communication. Domestic and international experts shared experiences about a variety of topics related to the international ISO 45001 standards and the national CNS 45001 standards, including: the implementation background; putting systems in place; organizational operations and risks; strategic orientations; application of management systems; and other successful technologies and key features. All of this pushed enterprises to enhance their management systems to the next level, and thus improve the safety and health technology standards in all industries.
