This is Daisy. I am glad to be the host on August 15. Today I want to talk about your health, safety and welfare at work as protected by law. Nowadays most people need to work everyday: five days a week, eight hours a day at least. Work is one of the most important things in our daily life, but have you ever thought about your health, safety and welfare at work?

The range of the laws related is wide, which covers various fields in health examination, employee’s insurance, fire safety at work site, employees’ personal safety, employees’ restaurant, and employees’ incentives (stocks or cash). Please read the following article, prepare the vocabulary you may need to discuss this brand new topic which has immediate concern to yourselves.

Your health, safety and welfare at work are protected by law

Your employer has a duty to protect you and keep you informed about health and safety. You have a responsibility to look after yourself and others. If there is a problem, discuss it with your employer or safety representative, if there is one.

This leaflet is a brief guide to health and safety law. It does not describe the law in detail, but it does list the key points. Your employer has a duty under the law to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, your health, safety and welfare at work.

In general, your employer's duties include:
*making your workplace safe and without risks to health;
 *ensuring plant and machinery are safe and that safe systems of work are set and followed;
 *ensuring articles and substances are moved, stored and used safely:
 *providing adequate welfare facilities;
 *giving you the information, instruction, training and supervision necessary for your health and safety.

In particular, your employer must:
*assess the risks to your health and safety;
 *make arrangements for implementing the health and safety measures identified as being necessary by the assessment;
 *if there are five or more employees, record the significant findings of the risk assessment and the arrangements for health and safety measures

As an employee you have legal duties too. They include:
*taking reasonable care for your own health and safety and that of others who may be affected by what you do or do not do;
*co-operating with your employer on health and safety;
 *correctly using work items provided by your employer, including personal protective equipment, in accordance with training or instructions; and
 *not interfering with or misusing anything provided for your health, safety or welfare.

For more detailed guidance on health and safety law, please link to the following sites:
勞動基準法-英文版 (LABOR STANDARDS LAW)
勞動基準法施行細則-英文版 (ENFORCEMENT RULES OF THE LABOR STANDARDS LAW)
勞工安全衛生法及相關法規 (Labor Safety And Health Law)

Section I
Question 1: Describe the laws related to the employee’s health and safety in your company.
Question 2: Suppose you are the safety director in your company, draw up a health and safety policy statement.

Intermission

Section II
There are some laws related to labor in Taiwan, such as Labor Standards Law, which protect us in basic health and safety. Here I have a mini test to help you understand your knowledge in your rights under these laws. Please discuss the following questions to see whether they are true or false, and I’ll give out the answers after each group has presented its summary.
1.Employees must be paid on typhoon leaves.

2.Company must offer health examination to their employees on a regular time schedule.

3.Employee incentives (stock or cash) are a trick which some big companies use to keep excellent employees to work for them.

4.There are no applicable laws in which we can claim compensation from the government when our family member dies or our family member can claim compensation from the government when we die.

5.When we are away on business, the company must pay for our travel expense, hotel expense, and life expense.

Answers to the mini test:
1. The answer is FALSE. It depends on the company’s policy.
(76) 台勞動字第3928號:天然災害發生時,停止辦公通報及起訖時間,應以事業單位所在地政府首長發布之通報為依據,如經宣佈停止工作或勞工確因居住地發生災害無法到工者,工資應如何發給,可由勞資雙方自行協商。

2. The answer is TRUE. not only government agencies but also all private companies must offer health examination to their employees.
根據勞工安全衛生法第十二條規定【雇主於僱用勞工時,應施行體格檢查;對在職勞工應施行定期健康檢查;對於從事特別危害健康之作業者,應施行特定項目之健康檢查;並建立健康檢查手冊,發給勞工】。

3. The answer is FALSE. Every company must award its employees with incentives.
員工紅利是依公司法第235條規定,不可刪除;但%數是可以由股東訂定章程時決定的,1%或0.6%或5%都可,只是未來公司有盈餘也經各股東同意分配時就必需以該%數給付,而給付對象也並未指定,故雇主可以只發給特定員工。

4. The answer is FALSE. According to Labor Insurance Law (勞工保險條例), each labor can get compensation when their spouse, parent, child dies.
