At the EHS Committee consisting with members of production sites, research institutes, headquarters, and other major sites, we share details on the corrective action of occupational injuries and best practices obtained from risk assessment and share information on amendments to the law. The EHS Committee works with the safety and health committee of each site. In addition, the Sustainability Promotion Department implements EHS self-checks (equivalent to internal audits), reports the results at the EHS Committee, and implements management review. In this way, management members are involved in EHS management.
We set targets for sustainability, including environmental and occupational safety and health and promote building the EHS (Environmental Health and Safety) management system with the aim of achieving these targets.
The EHS Management System that we are building is stipulated by the sustainability departments of headquarters concerning entire company requirements related to EHS as the SOP (standard operating procedure). In addition, based on the SOP, operations of the SOP are stipulated for each department. Thereby, concrete actions for the achievement of entire company targets that have been established are stipulated at the same level throughout the company. Based on ISO45001 (Occupational Safety and Health Management System) and ISO14001 (Environmental Management System), the SOP stipulates compliance with laws and regulations related to occupational safety and health, the environment, and fire-prevention and disaster-prevention, etc. and technical requirements that are not provided for by laws and regulations but require actions to be taken. In addition, by stipulating and implementing internal audits, it plans to implement PDCA to promote continuous improvement. In addition, it stipulates management review so that management members are involved.
We started to build the EHS Management System in FY2021 and aim to create and complete an SOP for 100 items by FY2024. We have completed an SOP for 31 items by FY2022.
In addition, along with the creation of an SOP, we started internal audits for compliance with laws and regulations in FY2021 and management review in FY2022.
We will continue to promote the building of the EHS Management System, protect occupatinal health and safety, and maintain and improve the environment in our operation areas so that we can be a company that can obtain trust from stakeholders as well, including the community and employees.
