TAIYO YUDEN Group has prioritized safety, strived to make workplace safe for workers, and established health and safety materiality; "make workplace with no occupational injury, fire, or explosion".
Occupational injury is considered to be caused by unsafe states and unsafe behavior, and in order to raise level of 5Ms (Man, Machine, Method, Material, Measurement), which are these factors, we set and work on the medium-term targets and the 5Ms targets .
Regarding fire/explosion, we implement risk assessment for expected fire/explosion and operate with the countermeasure standards.
All employees participate in health and safety efforts based on the Fundamental Principle of Health and Safety outlined in the Taiyo Yuden Group Safety and Environment Charter and implemented according to the Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS).
In order to realize our health and safety philosophy of "creating a workplace where employees can work without anxiety," the Taiyo Yuden Group has drawn up group-wide medium-term plans. The medium-term plan is set to prevent industrial accidents by clarifying action targets for each 5Ms (Man, Machine, Method, Material, Measurement) and by setting a target incidence rate of injuries and illness for numerically evaluating the result of such efforts.
In FY2018, the incidence rate of injuries and illness for the entire group was 0.015, which was below the medium-term target of 0.040 (see G1). In FY2018, the accident frequency rate for the entire group was 0.08 (see G2), and the danger ratio was 0.0015.
Note: No fatal accident has occurred.
We are promoting countermeasures against occupational injury and illness by conducting risk assessments in all workplaces. We found no workplace with high risks. Going forward, we will continue to carry out activities geared towards achieving zero Work-related accidents from the perspective of the 5Ms, based on our medium-term health and safety plan.
FY2018 was the final year of the FY2016?FY2018 medium-term targets. We evaluated, analyzed, and compared our performance for each target, and then established the New Medium-Term Occupational Health and Safety Targets (FY2021 Medium-Term Targets).
To eliminate all "unsafe states and behavior" as the causes of occupational accidents, we have clearly laid out a three-year strategy to further raise the standard of the Health and Safety program for each of the 5Ms (Man, Machine, Method, Material, and Measurement) that we have been working on.
We will implement activities in line with these New Medium-Term Occupational Health and Safety Targets, promote specific efforts to eliminate occupational accidents, reduce serious risks, and create and establish a safety culture.
