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 OHSAS18001 specifications.
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 FY2017, the incidence rate of injuries and illness for the entire group was 0.028, which was below the medium-term target of 0.040 (see G1). In FY2017, the accident frequency rate for the entire group was 0.14 (see G2), and the danger ratio was 0.0020.
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 activities geared towards achieving zero work-related accidents from the perspective of 5Ms, based on our medium-term health and safety plan.
