Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSMS) and System Certification

LX MMA has obtained certification for the ISO’s International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSMS) (ISO 45001), based on which systematic OH&S management practices are carried out. We efficiently operate and manage our ESH management system through our Environment, Health & Safety Team that is dedicated to overseeing all company-wide ESH affairs. The Environment, Health & Safety Team leads the OH&S practices at LX MMA by promptly identifying the current trends in OH&S and supporting the company to reflect them in our management policy, and by holding OH&S training sessions for employees and subcontractors to enhance OH&S awareness at our business sites. Furthermore, we practice close on-site safety management by engaging an OH&S Manager at each business site, to regularly monitor and manage the OH&S achievement rate at their site based on our ESH management policy.

Safety and Health Management

LX MMA has selected and manages environmental safety and health, as well as the top priority tasks of its management, and has established and operates advanced management systems such as accident prevention activities, safety diagnoses, education and training, management of its partners, and health promotion activities with the aim of realizing "zero" safety and health accidents and disease-free plants.

01Emergency Operating System

In petrochemical plants, there is a high potential risk of fire and explosion, and in the event of certain accidents the materials can spread to become secondary environmental pollution accidents. Therefore, these plants operate a comprehensive disaster prevention center and an emergency response organization, as the initial response to an accident is important to minimize the damage, and we are fully committed to preventing accidents through providing regular training once a quarter.

02Operation of the Safe/Unsafe Mileage System

LX MMA has operated the Safe/Unsafe Mileage system since 2018, as a means to enhance the safety awareness of all its employees and to comply with basic procedures, and the importance of accident prevention activities is once again emphasized, given that an explosion and serious accidents at nearby companies have been caused by worker mistakes or a failure to take sufficient safety measures before beginning the work. Therefore, we continue to reduce our risks through the on-site control of these issues.

03Operation of an Environmental Safety Index

In order to monitor and elevate the company’s environmental and safety management practices, LX MMA uses an Environmental Safety Index, which includes the Comprehensive Accident Scores and Site Business Activities, when assessing its executives and division heads. To encourage the OH&S managers of all business sites to systematically promote ESH tasks and vigorously carry out leadership practices that raise awareness of the environment and safety, we have included a Technology Research Center as the subject of our Site Business Activities. Furthermore, by creating “Critical Unsafe Mileage” items, in active response to the Serious Accidents Punishment Act in 2022, to report on the implementation progress to the Management Committee on a monthly basis, we are striving to enhance our employees’ competencies in ESH and to establish a safe and healthy workplace.

04Risk Assessments - IRMS System

While qualitative assessment methods are generally used in a risk assessment, which is the most important part of process safety management, a quantitative risk assessment can be performed more accurately, but is not often used due to taking too much time and consuming too much money, as a result of the need for hiring the experts and the statistical data acquisition. Therefore, LX MMA has introduced a simpler quantitative assessment technique (LOPA) to establish and implement a quantitative management system (IRMS) that rationally and scientifically manages the risks of its processes.

Spreading a culture of safety

01Training Program for Health and safety

LX MMA provides the legally required training program in a regular-basis, stratum-specific, and education on changes in the structure and content of work, as well as special program by external professional instructors, the cultivation of internal experts, and a regular maintenance preparation training program. All the employees also enhance their safety-oriented mind through education in Safety First/Safety Leadership. In addition, considering the characteristics of the plant, we promote safety awareness through construction safety and experience training, and have established a rapid response system for emergencies through conducting fire drills (regular, unexpected, joint, and basic). Furthermore, LX MMA provides information on the latest trends in OH&S, such as the Serious Accidents Punishment Act, in the company magazine MEGATONE to share them throughout the entire company. In 2022, the CEO’s Policy Proclamation for Improved OH&S Awareness was shared at a company-wide level. Through this declaration of the executive management’s commitment to prioritize safety above all else, we have been focused on raising OH&S awareness among out employees and spreading a culture of safety in the company.

02Operation of a Health Promotion System

LX MMA enhances the efficiency of its health care by computerizing its management tasks such as health examinations and management of the working environment or GHS MSDS.
