Human Rights Commitment

Working hours are not to exceed the maximum set by local law, with a maximum daily working time, and a workweek should not be more than 60 hours per week (except in emergency or unusual situations), and all personnel shall be allowed at least one day off every seven days. 3ASCREEN provides a fair living wage and offers a comprehensive leave management system and a safe and healthy workplace.

In addition, 3ASCREEN’s workplaces provide sufficient protective equipment and safety facilities to ensure the operational safety of relevant personnel.
Human Rights Governance Structure
3ASCREEN will establish a cross-department human rights task force in the future, encompassing Customer Service, Corporate Sustainability, Environmental Safety and Health, Human Resources, Information Technology, Corporate Information Security, Materials Management, Legal, Operations, Quality and Reliability, Research and Development and other functional organizations to systematically and effectively promote human rights management activities.
3ASCREEN follows the recommendations of the OECD Due Diligence Guidance for Responsible Business Conduct to carry out the Company’s due diligence process. 3ASCREEN conducts the due diligence process by embedding responsible business practices into its policies and management systems, regularly identifying and assessing risks, implementing prevention and mitigation measures, and tracking mechanisms.
Training and Advocacy
3ASCREEN develops human rights protection training to establish awareness and develop a culture of respecting human rights. Through such training, the Company informs employees about human rights concepts and their importance, accessible grievance channels to all, and 3ASCREEN’s measures for the management, prevention, and remediation of human rights violations.
3ASCREEN establishes robust grievance and communication channels and commits to protecting complainants. Potential human rights violations can be reported anonymously or through multiple communication mechanisms to provide concerns or suspected violations to 3ASCREEN, and the Company will initiate corresponding measures.
Once a human rights violation caused or contributed to by 3ASCREEN is identified, the Company will initiate a remediation mechanism based on the type of incident and, if necessary, cooperate with relevant stakeholders to prevent recurrence.
Communication and Disclosure
3ASCREEN identifies affected individuals on a case-by-case basis based on salient human rights issues to build a solid, trusting relationship, and listens to the voices of stakeholders through diverse, open, and two-way communication channels. The Company regularly discloses human rights management goals, actions, performance, and progress on the Company’s ESG website, Sustainability Report, and Human Rights Report.
