Safety Policy

  1. Safety First

    With an awareness of the factors that impair safety and health in our various business activities, we continuously strive to create safer and more secure workplaces by making improvements concerning those factors and through intrinsically-safe equipment designs and superior service capabilities.

  3. Management and Employees Responsibility

    All employees maintain an awareness of potential problems and of the need for improvement concerning the maintenance and enhancement of safety and health at all workplaces, and management and employees act in accordance with their respective responsibilities.

  4. Legal Compliance

    We comply with safety and health laws and regulations and international rules, take into consideration industry guidelines, and strive to promote safety and health.

  5. Collaboration and Cooperation with Society

    Based on common understanding with a broad range of stakeholders, we cooperate and collaborate with society and work to appropriately meet their expectations.


Increasing the safety awareness of individual workers is crucial for providing worksites where everyone can work safely. To fully support our “Safety First” culture, TEL has established the equipment safety promotion meeting and the work safety promotion meeting under the supervision of the EHS council. The equipment safety promotion meeting revises TEL’s design rules based on international laws and local regulations for equipment safety. It also determines TEL’s compliance with new regulations and administers corrective measures. The work safety promotion meeting investigates work safety issues at customer sites and TEL locations and implements appropriate remedies. These meetings also examine incidents involving personal injury or property damage, determine whether the incidents were caused by equipment trouble or other work-related factors, and take measures to ensure similar incidents do not occur in the future.
