Management of Waste Life Cycle
Air Pollution Control
Superior to Regulations Air Pollution Control Methodology
VisEra air pollution control capacity satisfies the Taiwan's "Semiconductor Manufacturing Air Pollutant Control and Emission Standards" and "Fixed Air Pollutant Emission Source Standards". In order to ensure the stable operation for 24 hours and 365 days of the pollution control equipment, all air pollution control equipments are equipped with at least one backup system (N+1 design) and install un-interruptible power system as power backup. Achieve the management goal of zero failure of the control equipment to ensure stable and continuous pollution monitoring. In addition, VisEra also installed an automatic monitoring equipment to keep the effectiveness of the exhaust gas treatment of each system. The relevant information is also returned to the factory on-duty station and the industrial safety emergency response center.

Occupational Safety and Health
The standard procedures are established in accordance with the Occupational Safety and Health Act, as well as the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (ISO 45001), with reference to advanced domestic and international safety and health practices.To ensure that relevant safety and health procedures have been solidly implement, benchmark tsmc model, a Safety Performance Index(SPI) system is formulated ,the daily results of carrying out safety and health practices in plants based on quantification management can then be obtained. SPI includes leading indicators and lagging indicators. SPI adopts a “management mechanism using blue, green, yellow and red lights as indicators. Result is getting better.
