Recognizing the impact and influence on corporate assets, production, operations and employee safety of natural disasters and plant site accidents and occurrences, CMI maintains the effectiveness of risk control measures by implementing hazard identification and risk assessment, risk engineering control, safety guidelines and safety standards. CMI also keeps track on the status and effectiveness of control of the high-risk areas on plant sites through continuous monitoring and measurement.
In addition to aggressively control risk by means of engineering improvement and emergency response, CMI has established the short-, medium and long-term business continuity plans (BCP) as instructions and guidelines for the business backup operations; and has applied for insurance to appropriately share the potential operation damage in the worst situation.
Seeing the importance of business continuity management, CMI has immediately summarized the differences among all three companies after the merger. Service interruption contingency plans have been completed one after another to ensure business continuity for some plant sites. These include the BCP and exercise for service interruptions or catastrophic risk, such as effluent anomalies, tap water supply interruption, park sewage treatment plant interruption, gas supply interruption, power supply interruption, pure water system interruption; and damage containment/limitation education, such as business continuity management and Semi S26 machine safety requirements. Based on the situation of individual plant sites, plant site damage containment/limitation onsite inspection and training were arranged in 2010 to fully capture plant site hazards and risks. Also, risk response and controllability are reinforced through relevant training, such as external training for ERT personnel and distributor and machine IR inspections.
To promote the consistency and effectiveness of business continuity management, enhance overall competitiveness in the industry, and cope with customer needs and industrial trends, CMI began the complete planning of the BCMS in the end of 2010 in the assistance of the Safety and Health Technology Center and insurance brokers, in order to promote the implementation of the BCMS according to the BS 25999 standard. Firstly in 2011, CMI will select specific business units or production lines as pilot run of the BCMS, establish the BCMS risk management system framework and implementation methods, and promote BCMS to the relevant CMI units. Lastly, CMI will apply for the accreditation of relevant standards, in order to fulfill the demands of both internal and external stakeholders and to construct a corporate safety culture for sustainable operations.
