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 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.

FY2016 Work-related Accidents and Safety Indicators

In FY2016, the medium-term target regarding the incidence rate of injuries and illness for the entire Group was less than 0.040, and we were able to achieve this by resulting in 0.035 (see G1).
In FY2016, the accident frequency rate for the entire Group was 0.18 (see G2), and the danger ratio was 0.0022.
We are promoting countermeasures for occupational accidents and occupational disease by conducting risk assessments in all workplaces. We found no workplace with high-risks.
We will continue to work on activities geared toward zero work-related accidents in terms of 5Ms based on the medium-term health and safety plan for the future.
