Accident and Emergency Prevention

Each facility must have a comprehensive risk prevention plan and be able to respond to unforeseen events.

Environmental Protection

Environmental inputs and outputs shall be monitored at each site and each site must set continuous improvement objectives, and key performance indicators need to be measured and reported.
