Corporate social responsibility of EMS provider GPV that include health, safety and environment

Corporate Responsibility

CSR

As a global EMS outsourcing partner it is important for GPV that our customers and business partners can rest assured that we act with respect for the world we are a part of.

GPV has defined a policy of Corporate Social Responsibility, which shows how GPV relates to a wide range of topics within this area, including health, safety and environment. Continuous measurements are carried out to ensure a gradual improvement of all areas.

We have also specified various human rights issues. Observance of human rights is a matter of course to GPV as well as one of the conditions we must fulfill to observe The Thai Labor Standard and the UN Global Compact. This implies that we condemn discrimination and child labor and uphold employees' rights to organise.

GPV Group’s Code of Conduct is also a part of our CSR policy. It describes that we do not accept bribes and that we expect our employees to inform our Executive Board if any violation of the mentioned principles has been found.

You will find the CSR Policy in its entirety here on our website.

Thai Labour Standards (TLS8001)

In our Bangkok facility we operate under the guidelines set down in the Thai Labour Standard (TLS). TLS ensures fairness when it comes to working hours, remuneration and discrimination in the workplace. It also ensures compliance with a set of rules concerning issues such as child labor, health and safety, welfare and the freedom of association.

The TLS 8001 standard not only concerns the rights of our staff and regulation of working conditions but it also covers requirements regarding Occupational Health and Safety that align with the international standard OHSAS18001.

Consequence analysis

Our consequence analysis is rated for “consequence” and “probability” using the categories “Very High”, “High”, “Medium”, “Low” and “Very Low” – presented in a color form for overview.

To facilitate an assessment of the impacts on an objective scale, the consequences are rated in relation to possible production stop for a shorter or longer period.

Likewise, to assess the probabilities, these are rated on a time scale related to the frequency of occurrence.
