Process Safety and Disaster Prevention

Basic Approach to Process Safety and Disaster Prevention Initiatives

The UBE Group strives to keep process accidents to zero by developing worksite frameworks that prevent accidents by ensuring thorough identification of risks and systematic implementation of far-reaching measures to counter those identified risks.

UBE Group’s Initiatives

We endeavor to eliminate process accidents through initiatives that ensure our facilities are safe and secure. We also undertake activities to minimize damage in the event of major natural disasters. In fiscal 2020, we focused on comprehensive measures to address the risks of accidents at aging facilities, improving safety at certified high-pressure gas sites, and implementing natural disaster measures.

Comprehensive Risk Measures Against Accidents at Aging Facilities

Measures to address the risks of accidents at aging facilities entail each business site inspecting and assessing aging facilities and formulating improvement plans. We have rolled out initiatives to prevent electrical equipment problems that have arisen in recent years from recurring. By undertaking comprehensive risk measures, we endeavor to build business sites that are impervious to accidents.
