Safety and Environmental Management System

Our group-wide Safety and Environmental Management System keeps individual activities proceeding toward common goals under a common philosophy.

System Overview

This management system consists of a small plan-do-check-action (PDCA) cycle inside a big one.
The big PDCA cycle specifies shared objectives and standards, checks implementation status using internal site audits and reports from sites, and reviews the management system, seeking continuous improvement.
The small PDCA cycle builds and promotes management systems compliant with ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 standards at each business site.

Promotion Structure

The officer in charge of safety and environmental affairs appointed by the President has overall responsibility for building and managing the promotion structure for TAIYO YUDEN's Safety and Environmental Management System.
The TAIYO YUDEN Group Safety and Environment Committee, the Taiyo Green Strategy (TGS) Committee, and the Energy and Resource Conservation Committee debate and decide policies and issues to be addressed. Each manager of sites then converts his/her decisions into actual plans matching the characteristics of each site, and takes charge of publicizing, enforcing and promoting these concrete targets.
