With the goal of becoming a “Global Auto Parts Supplier,” we will actively respond to domestic and overseas EHS laws by identifying and analyzing trends and reviewing countermeasures.

Safety and Health Monitoring System

In areas with risk factors for employees, a 24-hour Safety and Health Monitoring System is established to ensure that there are no safety blind spots. Also, we have a systematic disaster response system that handles accidents quickly and accurately. Through this, we will strive to establish a safe workplace so that employees of all businesses can work comfortably.

    As a leader in the automotive interior parts industry, we establish and implement the following environmental policy to minimize the environmental impact that occurs in the entire process of design, production, and sales.

    • Prior understanding of domestic and overseas environmental compliance/regulatory trends and stakeholder requirements
    • Achieve the advancement of the environmental management system by establishing an environmental management foundation for partners and implementing environmental strategies
    • Establish and implement environmental goals to minimize environmental impact

Directions

  • Operation of Effective Prevention Facilities

    Air Pollutant Management

    During process operation, we strive to minimize air pollutants from the source by substituting subsidiary materials. Prevention facilities are maintained in an optimal condition through periodic inspections. Through this, we are effectively reducing pollutants to 90% or less of the legal emission limit.

  • 3R(Reduce, Reuse, Recycle)

    Waste Management

    Seoyon E-Hwa is making efforts to purify and establish the economy by reducing waste at workplaces and promoting recycling.

Furthermore, we are striving for optimized recycling methods by subdividing wastes by nature and type.

  • ZERO Wastewater Plants

    Water Resource Management

    We are striving to reduce both water and wastewater consumption. As a result, most of it is household water and firefighting water, and the amount of wastewater generated is close to 0. Also, we regularly conduct water quality inspections in conjunction with specialized consigned companies to ensure that our employees drink clean water.

  • Hazardous Chemicals Management

    Since chemical accidents can be directly related to human and material loss, we are striving to prevent accidents in advance through a thorough chemical management process. With continuous process improvement, hazardous/risky substances are substituted with eco-friendly substances, and employees are regularly trained for behavioral tips and work safety rules to prevent exposure. In addition, by periodically updating GHS-MSDS, we support employees to work safely.

    Establishment of Intelligent Fire Management System

    With 2021 as the first year of the establishment of an intelligent manufacturing plant, Seoyon E-Hwa is promoting the intelligence of overall systems such as process, logistics, quality, and safety systems.

  • Fire Prevention Activities

    Being aware of large-scale fires that have occurred recently, we have selected areas vulnerable to fire, analyzed possible causes of fires, and established/improved management plans to prevent them. In particular, since many fires occur due to electricity, we periodically check earth-leakage circuit breakers and prohibit the use of personal air conditioners, heaters, and multi-plug extension adapters. We are also making efforts to minimize damage from fires by installing automatic fire extinguishing devices in areas where electric fires are a concern.
