Occupational Accident Prevention and Handling

In compliance with government laws and regulations, EVA Air carries out safety control and set up warning signs at the areas of operation. We also provide employees with the use of protective devices and arrange regular health examinations for the entire staff at a frequency higher than that required by the law. We also offer health promotion and consultations, as well as psychological counseling by physicians to help employees relieve work stress and reduce the risk of occupational disease. Besides setting up an infirmary and hiring medical personnel to provide employees with on-site health care services, AEDs are also set up at office buildings, and trainings are conducted for employees on its usage to prevent accidents from happening.

Besides carrying out occupational safety and health management, EVA Air also implements regular automatic checks and on-site inspections to prevent the occurrence of “Major Occupational Accidents”. The current occupational accident status is regularly inspected by relevant departments, and safety and health improvement strategies are formulated based on the causes of occupational accidents to reduce the rate of occurrence. EVA Air’s 2015 Disabling Injury Frequency Rate (FR) and Disabling Injury Severity Rate (SR) were higher than those in 2014, and cabin crew members accounted for 82.81% of the occupational accidents. To effectively reduce the occurrence of occupational accidents, the Cabin Service Division specially produced a promotional campaign using case examples and published it on the “Occupational Safety and Health Corner”, to enhance cabin crew members’ safety awareness and instill the correct work concepts.

In 2015, there were no major occupational accidents involving death, causing injuries to 3 people or more, or one person or more that require hospitalization. However, a subcontractor of our main contractor reported one major occupational accident, where a worker fell from a ladder. The onsite supervisory unit immediately requested the prohibition of aluminum ladders that violate safety standards at workplaces, to prevent the occurrence of similar incidents.

  • In 2015, two female flight crew members were pregnant and applied for 30 days sick leave before going on unpaid parental leave. Hence, the 2015 absence rate for female flight crew members is higher.
  • In line with the amendments to Article 14 of the Act of Gender Equality in Employment, female employees who have difficulties in performing their work during their menstruation period may apply for one day menstrual leave each month. If the menstrual leave applied does not exceed three days for the entire year, they shall not be counted as sick leave. All additional days of menstrual leave applied shall be counted as sick leave.
  • In 2015, there were 600 new cabin crew members with less than a year’s service and not entitled to special leave. As their individual leave requirement and work schedule were adjusted through leave application, the 2015 absence rate for female cabin crew members was higher.
