SSMS believes that people come first, and so does their health and safety. We work closely with our employees and the communities where we operate to achieve a work environment that is clean, safe and free from accidents and occupational hazards, as well as to help make lives healthier for these people.

SSMS operates one central polyclinic and eleven polyclinic branch equipped with four ambulance units within the plantation area, prepared to handle work-related emergencies. An Emergency Room at each polyclinic is equipped to treat injuries such as cut injuries, palm oil's thorn pierced wounds, fracture, burns, and so on.
Staffed with two doctors, 14 nurses, 14 midwives who are Hiperkes-certified and one pharmacist, the central polyclinic and their eleven smaller branches also see outpatients and inpatients suffering from common illnesses such as upper respiratory infection, diarrhea, headaches, asthma, high blood pressure, and so on.
These polyclinics provide free healthcare for all of SSMS employees, their families, as well as villagers around the SSMS operation area. Services are run in cooperation with the local community health centers (Puskesmas), regional hospital, Insurance Institution and can be covered by both government-issued insurance, BPJS Health and BPJS Employment.
Launched in 2014, our Safety Performance Indicator Program is aimed at continuously improving SSMS’s safety performance. Under this program, we keep track of potential work-related hazards and accidents, as well as those that have taken place, and introduce safety measures to prevent or address them.
Each employee is given a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) on safety that they have to achieve every year. As an incentive, those with good rapports will enjoy benefits such as accelerated promotions, salary increases, and annual bonuses.
As a result, in 2016, we managed to address several cases of potential hazards and accidents before they happened, and thus slashed work-related injuries requiring medical aid by 44% compared to the previous year.
