TSMC Launches Health Check-up Program on New Construction Site, Safeguarding the Health of Contractors
TSMC is deeply rooted in a people-oriented culture and actively join hands with the supply chain to create a healthy and friendly workplace. In order to promote improved health awareness among fab construction project contractors and partners, since September 2022, the new work areas in Hsinchu, Taichung, and Tainan Science Parks have successively promoted the "Four Cancers and Hepatitis B and C General Inspection" initiative for the first time. Screenings for oral cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, and hepatitis B and C were conducted for contractor partners free of charge. In November, the capacity of screening was expanded and further extended to contractors in the operating factory area. As of December, 5 sessions have been held and a total of 2,567 people have benefited, helping to provide contractors with convenient and considerate health care services.
Work Area Screening + Health Education + Follow-up Care to Help Contractors Check Their Health
According to a survey conducted by the National Health Service of the Ministry of Health and Welfare, cancer is the top ten cause of death among Chinese people. Screening for four cancers is helpful for early detection of cancer and precancerous lesions. Liver cancer is mostly caused by chronic hepatitis B and C. Through screening, it can be treated in advance and reduce the possibility of complications. In addition to providing annual health checkups and anti-cancer screening services to take care of the health of TSMC employees, in order to strengthen the health awareness of contractor partners, TSMC has set up nursing stations in the new construction area to regularly track the health of high-risk contractor partners. This year, local medical institutions are further invited to set up screening equipment and consulting resources in the new work area. Contractor partners can choose screening items according to their own needs as long as they bring their health insurance cards and do not need to pay fees. Health education advice is given and there is continuous follow-up care to check the health of contractors.
TSMC Work Area Contractor Partner Health Care
Thank you TSMC for providing free four-cancer screening service, so that everyone can understand their physical condition and care about their own health in addition to work. It is really a great event!
It is very convenient for us to do screenings and track our own health status in the work area for free, without having to arrange another time to go to the hospital for health checks.
Contractors are important partners for TSMC's continuous growth. TSMC promotes free screening activities of "Four Cancers and Hepatitis B&C General Inspection" in the work area, and cooperates with the resident medical team for follow-up care. This not only increases the willingness of contractor partners to test, it also reduces their financial burden. In the future, every TSMC fab construction project will introduce this service. At the same time TSMC will evaluate cooperation with more local medical institutions to expand the capacity of testing and health education to provide contractor partners with better care. Together with TSMC, we will move towards sustainable mutual benefit.
TSMC has always played the role of a navigator in the corporate world. This "Corporate Social Responsibility-Friendly Workplace Partner Cancer Screening Activity" directly provides health services for partners; I believe that all partners feel the same as me and feel the intention of TSMC, and the "heart" power to achieve health.
