For strict access control with compliance to the ISMS Standards (Information Safety Management System), Compal requires employees to wear staff IDs within plants. The access card system at each entrance and exit controls personnel's access authority. For clients, suppliers, and other visitors, a security system is used to record the time of the visit, the number of visitors, and regulate the areas and time open to visitors. Compal's security personnel work in shifts 24-hour hours a day to control the entry of personnel and objects, perform safety inspections day and night inside and outside plants, monitor the presence of visitors and overtime workers, check incoming/outgoing vehicles, and perform traffic control.
