This is the eighth consecutive year that Seagate’s Teparuk plant has won the award whilst Seagate’s Korat plant has won it for the fifth consecutive year. These prestigious awards clearly demonstrate that Seagate Teparuk and Korat place high priority on safety, health and environment in their operations.

Both these facilities have well-planned policies and strategies on safety, occupational health and environment with great compliance to the Department of Employee Welfare and Labor Protection regulations. Moreover, they regularly organize special projects and campaigns to raise employees’ awareness in these topics.

“All employees are fully committed to rules and regulations in safety, occupational health and environment. We focus primarily on developing and improving the highest efficiency in our Teparuk and Korat operations by encouraging all employees to take particular concerns for these important topics in all operational processes. At Seagate Teparuk and Korat plants, concerns for safety, occupational health and environment have become part of our corporate culture,” said Mr. Jeffrey D. Nygaard, vice president and country manager, Thailand Operations, Seagate Technology (Thailand) Limited.
