Safety and Environment
Operational safety is our highest priority. Workplace, plant and transport safety have always been the top priority at LDK Solar. They form the basis for uninterrupted production. Systematic work safety at the company includes the regular evaluation of hazards and work-area monitoring. We conduct extensive safety and risk analyses from the design stage through to commissioning to ensure our plants' safety. In matters of safety, we attach great importance to the basic and advanced training of employees. We regularly hold seminars on plant safety, explosion protection and work safety.
Environmental protection, just like safety and health protection, is a core component of all processes at LDK Solar. The focus is not so much on remedial measures, but on prevention – evaluation begins as early as the product-development and plant-planning stages. In accordance with the core ideas, our environmental-protection measures always go beyond what is legally required. We continually work on conserving resources and decoupling energy consumption and waste generation from production volume. Our manufacturing practices are certified with the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard.
