Identifying and mitigating safety and health risks

We are steadfast in our commitment to proactively mitigate serious accident risks and cultivate a safe and health work environment. This entails identifying safety hazards at worksites through risk assessment, developing and implementing recommended actions, and verifying their effectiveness. Since 2022, we have conducted risk assessments twice a year, ensuring that all 93 safety hazards identified in 2023 (with a risk level of 6 or higher) have been diligently addressed. Furthermore, SK Networks is taking proactive actions to eliminate hazards found from feedback contributed by workers via the health and safety council. Walkerhill has implemented an enterprise risk management (ERM) system to enhance its risk assessment scheme specific to the needs of its worksite.

(*) Risk = probability of occurrence X criticality of consequence (probability/criticality is estimated on a scale of 1 to 3 respectively)

Collecting employee feedback

At SK Networks worksites across the nation, a monthly health and safety council is established and chaired by health and safety managers, with supplier involvement. The council serves as a platform to enhance health and safety protocols and gather feedback from workers regarding health and safety issues at each SK Networks worksite. Quarterly collaborative inspections are conducted to evaluate safety conditions and mitigate potential accidents onsite. Furthermore, risk assessments are also regularly conducted to solicit input from workers and suppliers on health and safety hazards, ensuring ongoing improvement. Walkerhill remains committed to identifying and mitigating health and safety risks, including the enhancement of road infrastructure to promote pedestrian safety.

Emergency response system and drills

Emergency response systems are implemented at worksites across the nation including Samil Building, SK Networks logistics centers, and Walkerhill. Regular emergency response drills for fire and natural disasters are conducted each year. Onsite facilities include Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) and fire masks, with workers receiving regular training in CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) and Heimlich maneuver to address airway obstructions. Walkerhill provides safety incident experience training to its people to prepare them for a variety of contingencies. Additionally, Walkerhill is certified as a CPR training institution by the Korean Association of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (KACPR), offering systematic and professional first-aid response training on a regular basis.
