Environment and Safety Guidelines

Compliance with Legal Standards

We rigorously comply with all related regulations from national and local governments concerning the environment, safety, and health. We also set stricter internal standards and adhere to them. We take proactive, preventive efforts regarding various regulations being discussed internationally, voluntarily fulfilling our corporate social responsibility.

Establishing a Line Responsibility System

All regulations pertaining to environment, safety, and health must be strictly followed. Primary responsibility lies with the individual, while managerial responsibility lies with the respective management structure. Therefore, managers need to clarify their roles and responsibilities by refining their organization and operational systems. The related performance is reflected in the organizational and individual achievements based on objective assessment methods and standards.

Constructing an Emergency Response System

Clear procedures must be set to prepare for all possible environmental, safety, and health incidents and emergencies. Through continuous and regular emergency drills, we minimize the impact of emergencies and actively cooperate with local communities to create a pleasant and safe community.

Building an Environmental Management System

We move away from the primary perspective of simple cost burdens and regulatory responses to environmental problems. We build an environmental management system that considers environmental aspects across all aspects of corporate management. We establish and operate systematic and effective audit procedures to strive for improvement.

Producing Environmentally Friendly Products and Services

We review the environmental impact of all management activities in advance, such as development, design, purchase, production, sales, usage, and disposal. We provide environmentally friendly products and services that specifically consider potential issues and countermeasures.

Preservation of Global Environment and Pollution Prevention

We minimize the emission of pollutants by reducing and effectively handling pollutants that occur during all business activities.

Management of Resources and Energy at the Source

We assess the appropriateness of all physical resources used during all business activities, practice recovery, reuse, and recycling, and strive to use and conserve energy efficiently.

Eradication of Major Disasters

Accidents involving loss of life and property damage must be reported regardless of scale, and measures to analyze causes and prevent recurrences must be implemented. Potential hazards of accidents are also thoroughly managed to prevent significant disasters.

Enhancing Preventive Safety Activities

All hazards in the workplace must be identified and evaluated in advance through regular inspections and related education. These elements must be eliminated or safety facilities supplemented to prevent any human and material damage.

Safety Level of Partner Companies

We distribute a safety management system of the same level as ours to partner companies, guide and support them, and maintain a mutually cooperative relationship for safety enhancement. We build a safety management system for partner companies that can be operated appropriately and effectively according to industry and size.

Securing Safety of Products and Services

We need to build a system that can ensure the safety and health of customers and the community using our products and services. We continuously research and develop to improve safety.

Maintaining a Pleasant Working Environment

We implement continuous improvements and systematic health management for each worker to create a healthy and efficient working environment.

Prevention of Occupational Diseases

A reasonable management system must be established to prevent the occurrence of occupational diseases related to work, and workers must actively participate. In cases where a work-related disaster occurs or the occurrence of an occupational disease is anticipated, the tasks assigned to the worker should be adjusted and this must be operated in a reasonable manner.

Implementation of Health Promotion Programs

A systematic program must be operated for the health and health promotion of workers. The company should prevent human loss through pre- and post-care.
