Environmental and Safety Organization
Policies and measures relating to such environmental safety components as occupational safety and health, process safety and disaster prevention, environmental preservation, and environmental issues are key management issues. The President and CEO chairs the Strategic Management Meeting (Environment and Safety), which deliberates and decides on these issues. The meeting also serves as a process safety headquarters prescribed in a ministerial order relating to high-pressure gas safety (HPGS), discussing and determining important matters relating to process safety at certified sites for high-pressure gas.
Environmental Safety Measures
We implement PDCA cycles based on our environmental and safety measures to constantly improve efforts relating to occupational safety and health, process safety and disaster prevention, environmental preservation, and environmental issues. The Outline of Environment and Safety Activities on pages 1–2 of the 2023 Integrated Report Supplementary Information (Environment and Safety/Quality Assurance) presents our environmental safety activity plans and achievements.
