Our focus on OHSAS in the organization to mitigate operational risks and impact is an example of this approach.
- We continue to promote safety awareness in our factories and pursue the goal of zero-accidents so that occupational injuries can be reduced to an absolute minimum.

- Regular Inspections by Professional Consultants
Apart from the implementation of health and safety management at each factory, Delta has also retained professional OHS consultants to carry out regular diagnoses to identify and prevent potential risks. The consultants provide recommendations on Delta’s existing OHS organization in response to changes in organization and production activities. This helps us make adjustments to ensure that the relevant departments have enough personnel to safeguard factory employees and company assets.
Work Environment Quality Testing and Equipment Upgrades
Delta factory production lines are frequently adjusted to meet demand, or spaces are rearranged to optimize utilization. We regularly reassess health & safety risks as well as conduct work environment quality testing to safeguard operators’ health by ensuring that concentrations of hazardous substances do not exist beyond statutory limits.
ECO fresh carbon dioxide sensors have been installed for monitoring fresh air to optimize comfort and energy . Air flow transmitters have been installed inside all the fresh air ducts to maintain the indoor air quality as the increase in the Carbon dioxide concentration may leads to drowsiness, discomfort and inhalation problem.
Emergency Response Drills
For man-made or natural emergencies such as fires, flooding, leaks, poisoning, mechanical injury, infectious diseases, earthquakes, lightning strikes and electric shocks, our factories have defined their own response plans for identification, handling and response to environmental health & safety emergencies, as well as post-incident feedback & review. We regularly conduct fire and emergency drills so if an accident does occur, its impact on employee health and safety as well as company property is minimized.

The training was provided by Medical Officer of reputed Hospital and provided the information for the spreading, prevent, cure and take cautions. 5. Occupational Accident Analysis and Prevention
