Occupational Safety and Health Act (previously Labor Safety and Health Act) was implemented
on July 3, 2014 and is applied to all walks of life, including educational institutions.
As stated in the Occupational Safety and Health Act, employers should provide regular health
checkup to their employees and any violations shall be subject to a fine of no less than
NT$30,000 but no more than NT$150,000, while employees have the obligation to participate
in the checkup and violators shall be subject to a fine of no more than $NT3,000.
To comply with relevant laws and regulations, Campus Health Services Section of Student Affairs
Division has arranged to hold the 2017-18 health checkup on Taipei and Taoyuan campus on
January 3 and 4, 2018. Meanwhile, important indicators for cardiovascular diseases: High-density
Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL) and Low-density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL), and on-site
consultation with a physician are added as regulated in the Act.
In accordance with relevant laws, only those who have had a health checkup outside of the
university comprising items that meet the standards for employee health checkup within
three months prior to the health checkup held by the university may waive the health
checkup (Those health checkup reports need to be submitted to Campus Health Services
Section to let us know). All other full-time faculty and staff members and full-time special
program employees are required to participate in the health checkup to be held in January,
2018. Those who cannot take health checkup on that date are required to complete the
checkup at a medical institution recognized by Occupational Safety and Health
Administration, Ministry of Labor at their own expense and submit a copy of the results
report to Campus Health Services Section by the end of January.
