We address workplace safety as a top priority. Currently (as of March 31, 2017), we have had 3,921 accident free consecutive work days. We intend to continue this record to 4,100 days (Class 4 no-accident record) by staying focused.
Each department conducts monthly workplace patrols to identify safety and health issues that need improvement and take corrective measures. We also share information on industrial accidents amongst groups so that every group can prevent industrial accidents.
In June 2016, a safe forklift operation workshop was held with an outside instructor. The contents of the workshop included accident examples, rules to observe, inspection before starting work and driving demonstrations. Trainees recognized anew the important points of safe forklift operation. They are now conducting work with "safety first" in mind as part of a back-to-basics attitude.

Efforts in Disaster Preparedness

Our plant is located within the expected strike area of a high magnitude earthquake in the Nankai Trough. We have, therefore, been taking various disaster preparedness measures for many years. As a part of that, disaster control activities and drills are regularly conducted with the in-house fire brigade as the main player in order to minimize damage in the event of an emergency situation. In the fire-fighting and disaster drills, drills are conducted separately by each building, and first action drills, evacuation drills, and initial fire-extinguishing drills are conducted assuming a major earthquake. Rescue drills using a rescue kit and first-aid drills with simulated injuries are also conducted. A lecturer was also invited from the Hirakata Neyagawa Fire Department to speak about disaster prevention to our in-house fire brigade.
In 2013, we started rescue drills to free people trapped in elevators and general fire-fighting and disaster drills using transceivers assuming that the telephone system was down. With those drills, we keep ourselves prepared for emergencies. The plant also serves as a temporary shelter for neighborhood residents. On November 6, 2016, we provided cooperation for evacuation drill conducted by neighboring Fujisaka-minami. After the evacuation drill in our plant, we gave a seminar entitled “Flood risk and practical use of surveillance camera monitoring river areas”. We also held a tasting event for approximately 80 participants of cooked and dry packed rice, which can be used as emergency food in the event of a disaster.

Actions to ensure Safety in the Pathways of the Plant Compound

Traffic zones for pedestrians and vehicles in the external pathways of the plant compound are now differentiated by color. Lanes designated as "green belts" indicate pedestrians have priority, thus ensuring their safety. This color coding allows not only employees but also visitors to clearly recognize the zones they should walk on and help enhance and ensure traffic safety in the plant compound.
