Health and Safety

LG Electronics receives regular consulting from professional agencies specializing in safety, fire prevention, environmental protection, energy, and production equipment to assess the safety and environment of production sites and R&D facilities. LG Electronics mapped the fire risks associated with business sites and made Fire Risk Index (FRI) based on advanced standards for disaster risk management including the FM Global standards and the NFPA Code. We assessed all Korean sites and overseas production subsidiaries against the FRI and made improvements where necessary.
