Achievement Levels for Medium-Term Occupational Health and Safety Targets

All employees participate in health and safety efforts based on the Fundamental Principle of Safety and Health outlined in the TAIYO YUDEN Group Safety and Environment Charter and implemented according to OHSAS18001 specifications

Fundamental Principle of Safety & Health and Targets

In order to realize our health and safety philosophy of "creating a workplace where employees can work without anxiety," the TAIYO YUDEN Group draws up group-wide medium-term plans. The medium-term plan sets forth action targets which establish achievement levels for each of the 5M's (Man, Machine, Material, Method, Media), and a frequency rate and danger ratio for numerically evaluating the results of these efforts. Activities have been carried out in this way to prevent work-related accidents.
All the action targets, frequency rate and danger ratio were achieved in this medium-term plan.

FY2012 Work-related Accidents, and Safety Indicators

We were able to achieve our medium-term target of less than 0.12 for the FY2012 accident frequency rate. (See G1.)
Compared with the previous fiscal year, the number of workplace accident victims (at least one workday lost) decreased and working hours increased, so the accident frequency rate fell by 0.06.
We were also able to achieve our medium-term target of less than 1.00 for the FY2012 danger ratio. (See G2.) The reason for this was a decrease in the number of workplace accident victims (not involving workdays lost) by more than 30% compared with the previous fiscal year. Furthermore, the accident severity rate for FY2012 was 0.0025.
We are now working on activities toward zero work-related accidents based on a new medium-term health and safety plan in the future.

New Medium-Term Occupational Health and Safety Targets (FY2015 Medium-Term Targets)

FY2012 saw the end of the medium-term targets set in FY2009 - FY2012, so we have formulated new health and safety medium-term targets (FY2015 medium-term targets) after evaluating and analyzing attainment level of the targets in the previous period. Toward the elimination of all unsafe situations and all unsafe behavior that leads to work-related accidents, we have clarified the efforts we will take to achieve our targets after once again evaluating and analyzing our current health and safety activity level from the viewpoint of the 5Ms (man, machine, method, material, measurement).
In the future, we will carry out activities in line with these new health and safety medium-term targets and promote specific efforts with the aim of eliminating work-related accidents and reducing serious risks.
