The topic of safety was addressed as a top priority.
Each department conducts monthly workplace patrols to identify safety and health issues that need improvement, and then corrective measures are taken. We also share information with all of the groups regarding industrial accidents which have occurred within the groups, so that each one can prevent these industrial accidents.
In June of 2017, workshop regarding the safe operation of forklifts was held by an outside lecturer. Participants reaffirmed safe forklift operation by using examples of accidents, explaining rules to be observed, routine inspections to be performed before the start of work and simulated operation. They are now going back to basics and conducting forklift operations, with the principle of "safety first" in mind.
On September 26, 2017, we received a commendation from the Osaka Labor Bureau for the record achievement of 4,100 consecutive accident-free workdays. At the certificate of recognition award ceremony, held at the North Osaka Labor Standards Inspection Office on November 15, 2017, the director of the labor standards office told us, "Please continue to create a safe workplace, aiming to achieve the record of 6,100 accident-free consecutive workdays". As a next step, we will continue to ensure daily safety for the prevention of occupational accidents and aim to achieve the record of 6,100 accident-free consecutive workdays.

Efforts in Disaster Preparedness

Our plant is designated as a disaster preparedness promotion area located within the area where the Nankai Trough Megathrust Earthquake is expected to occur. We have been, therefore, taking various disaster preparedness measures for many years. As part of such efforts, disaster prevention activities and drills are regularly conducted, mainly by the in-house fire brigade, in order to minimize damage in the event of an emergency situation. Fire-fighting and disaster drills, first action drills, evacuation drills, initial fire-extinguishing drills, drills using a rescue kit and first-aid drills in case of injury, are conducted to prepare for a possible earthquake occurrence. More specific drills, such as first-aid and lifesaving drills by using AED, are also conducted by a lecturer from the Hirakata Neyagawa Fire Department.
We continue to work daily to enhance the response to an emergency by conducting rescue drills for people trapped in elevators and general fire-fighting and disaster drills, using transceivers only, on the assumption that telephone services are unavailable.

Actions to ensure Safety in the Pathways of the Plant

Efforts to ensure the safety of pedestrians in the plant are recognized. Differentiating traffic zones for pedestrians vs. vehicles in the external pathways have been established by designating "Green belts" as the traffic zone for pedestrians, allowing employees and visitors to clearly distinguish the zone in which they should walk. Also, putting anti-slip paint on manholes in the plant contributes significantly to traffic safety in the plant.
