Safety and Health Organization and Decision-Making System
SK D&D operates a safety and health management system centered on business managers. We have strengthened execution of safety and health management by appointing a Chief Safety Officer (CSO) and establishing a company-wide safety and health organization (SHE Part). Safety and health plans and performance are reported to the board every year. In addition, we regularly hold regular SHE meetings of the headquarters and subsidiaries. We analyze the results of onsite inspections and share improvement cases to prevent industrial accidents at the headquarters and subsidiaries.

Safety and Health Risk Management
SK D&D assesses safety risk factors for rental housing and energy operation sites. We manage potential risks that may occur at our business sites by regularly inspecting firefighting and safety facilities. In addition, we identify potential risks and establish improvement plans according to risk levels by considering various internal and external factors such as legal standards, manuals, and organizational culture. The manager directly checks, prepares improvement procedures, and confirms implementation for material hazard risk factors. Furthermore, we check the effectiveness of the evaluation as well as carrying out risk assessment of the business sites in order to manage potential risks. Based on this, we advance safety inspection activities and spare no efforts to ensure the safe and comfortable living of our residents.

Workplace Safety and Health Activities
Safety and Health Management System
SK D&D acquired the ISO 45001, an international standard safety and health management system in September 2022 as a business developing and selling eco-friendly energy in order to systematically fulfill responsibility for the safety and health of workers. Furthermore, we prepared safety and health management manuals, emergency response guidelines, and project management guidelines at the headquarters and business sites in order to protect the lives and bodies of employees and create a pleasant working environment. We will continue to improve the safety and health management system through efforts such as system implementation inspection according to the safety and health management manual and applying the virtuous cycle system of Plan–Do–Check–Act (PDCA).
Virtuous Cycle System of Plan-Do-Check-Act
Operation of the Safety Board
We operate the Safety Board website in order to share safety and health improvement goals and related performance to our employees for them to contribute to the internalization of safety and health. We provide the information to our employees in card news format to increase accessibility to the safety and health manuals and information related to the Serious Accident Punishment Act.
Response to Emergencies
We have established action guidelines to prepare for potential accidents at the workplace. We aim to prevent disasters through immediate responses in case of emergency by establishing emergency plans for each situation, and aim to minimize direct and indirect losses to sites and the company through protection of human life and prevention of pollution. Also, we conduct training and education once every half-year in order to sufficiently understand and prepare for emergencies in addition to establishing emergency response training plans at business sites. Furthermore, we are checking implementation of relevant activities every half-year through Leading groups.
Safety and Health Training
We establish and implement various training plans every year in order to internalize safety and health management. We provide differentiated content for each training target to form a consensus on safety management and improve the safety awareness level of employees and conduct safety and health training to manage employees’ job stress and diseases. A total of 759 hours of safety and health training was conducted in 2022 to raise employees’ awareness of safety and health management.

Supply Chain Safety and Health Activities
Enhancement of Supply Chain Safety
A total of 7 on-going project safety supervisors were placed for the first time in the industry from January 2022 in order to create a safe workplace environment and prevent major accidents, strengthening management supervision. Also, we improved the project contract process, applying criteria for selecting qualified project contractors and providing technical guidance for disaster prevention. We conduct quarterly safety competency assessments to dissolve risk factors and identify the level of safety management at each site to evaluate suppliers’ safety competency. In case of deficient sites, corrective actions are shared with the business site, and the results of major safety inspections including safety and health management policies, goal setting, and risk assessment are reflected in future.
Establishment of Supply Chain Safety Management System
Making Safer Spaces and Strengthening Management Level
We have established and applied project management guidelines in order to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of the ordering body. In addition, we apply evaluation criteria by size at the bidding stage in order to evaluate the ability to implement major disaster prevention and execute safety and health activities. We prevent industrial accidents at our on-going sites and mitigate safety and health risks during construction in advance by selecting a company satisfying the preliminary processes.
Evaluation Criteria by Size
Regular Evaluation of Safety Competency
Quarterly safety inspections of subcontractors is conducted by the department in charge of safety and health as an ordering body to remove harmful risk factors and identifying the level of safety management by site. Corrective measures are shared with insufficient business sites, and major safety inspection results are reflected in future inspection plans, such as safety and health management policy/goal establishment and risk assessment throughout this process.

Operation of Grievance Handling Channel for Supply Chain Safety and Health
Safety supervisors are assigned to each site voluntarily by SK D&D to inspect site safety and improve/supervise nonconformities. A communication channel is operated through safety supervision at each site frequently in order to collect opinions from the field, and quarterly safety supervision meetings are held to handle grievances, collect opinions, and share best practices with each site and business partners.

Regular inspections of rental housing facilities, electrical equipment, firefighting facilities, and mechanical devices are carried out in collaboration with specialized FM companies, and damage from unexpected accidents are minimized by establishing standard accident procedures. Furthermore, we are sparing no effort in minimizing safety and health risks for customers by subscribing to insurance against natural disasters and conducting mock drills to prepare for unexpected accidents.
