POSCO Pohang Steel Works announced on the 29th that it was selected as an excellent company in the ‘Win-Win Cooperation in Safety and Health between Large and Small Businesses’ organized by the Minister of Employment and Labor.

On this day, an award ceremony for excellent companies and an agreement to expand win-win cooperation activities were held at the Bank Hall in Jung-gu, Seoul, with government officials, personnel from related organizations, and about 100 companies participating in win-win cooperation activities in 2023 in attendance.

The safety and health cooperation activities between large and small businesses are government-supported projects.

The purpose is to prevent industrial accidents and improve the level of safety and health management by carrying out autonomous win-win cooperation activities between companies and partner companies.

This project has been implemented from 2023 under the supervision of the Ministry of Employment and Labor to spread the excellent safety and health win-win cooperation model through autonomous solidarity between companies.

If selected as an excellent company, it will be given the benefit of being excluded from regular inspection and supervision by the Ministry of Employment and Labor in the following year.

This is a measure to recognize and encourage companies’ voluntary safety and health management efforts as part of the benefits of the occupational safety and health voluntary practice period.

Pohang Steel Works began win-win cooperation matching activities with three partner companies, Cheongin, Finetech, and Seyoung Enterprises, in August 2023, and provided a total of 42 consulting and safety training sessions until October.

Through this, it is evaluated that it played a significant role in establishing a safety and health management system for partner companies, such as transferring risk assessment techniques to partner companies and strengthening safety implementation capabilities.

In addition, Pohang Steel Works provided safety and health products such as gas meters, fully automatic blood pressure monitors, and anti-slip sleeves.

A seminar explaining win-win cooperation projects and the Severe Accident Punishment Act was held for executives and safety team leaders from all 45 partner companies of Pohang Steel Works to improve their understanding of the business.

In 2024, we plan to participate in a win-win cooperation project with seven partner companies.

As a result of a comprehensive review of the safety and health win-win cooperation activities and performance of about 100 companies participating in the project, the Ministry of Employment and Labor selected Pohang Steel Works as an excellent company in safety and health win-win cooperation activities in 2023.

At the award ceremony, Minister of Employment and Labor Lee Jeong-sik said, “Only when both the government and businesses work together to demonstrate a partnership of coexistence and cooperation can we change safety on site.” “We hope that we will continue to provide support to improve our capabilities and further strengthen the safety culture at industrial sites,” he emphasized.

Previously, in his inauguration speech in 2024, Cheon Si-yeol, head of Pohang Steel Works, said, “For the safety of the steel mill to be successful, there must be active participation from all employees, including direct management, partners, and service providers.” “We must protect safety, and let’s create a positive and independent on-site safety atmosphere through praise rather than trivial criticism,” he said.
