Environmental, Safety & Health Policy
By way of defining and publicizing the environment and safety-related policies, MitraStar expresses its intention to take environment and safety issues into consideration in every aspect. It observes all government regulations and enforcing policies relevant to the environment, HSF and safety. It requires all employees to comply with the terms listed in the environment and HSF manual.

Environment, Safety and Hygiene Risk Management
MitraStar keeps improving its production line equipment to conform to international ecology standards. In fact, the vision of MitraStar has evolved from an early "regulation-savvy" to "green enterprise as a whole", as it is today.

In terms of the manufacturing processes, preventive measures, such as the safety design of machinery, operating procedures, training, automatic inspection, safety auditing, management of chemicals, environmental assessment, employee health check and management, protective gears and management of high-precision operations are taken on a daily basis to ensure a comfortable, safe and worry-free working environment for employees.
