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 2022, we focused on zero equipment accidents, zero environmental accidents, improving safety at high-pressure gas sites, and implementing natural disaster measures.
Zero equipment accidents
Through the Accident Information Liaison Committee, accident information is shared and each business site implements horizontal development to prevent similar accidents from happening again. We are also working to strengthen equipment maintenance and management through the Safety Management Liaison Committee.
Zero environmental accidents
We identify environmental risks and promote environmental risk reduction measures.
Enhancing Process Safety Capabilities at Certified High-Pressure Gas Facilities
For certified high-pressure gas sites, we set up an improvement agenda in line with assessment findings from the Japan Industrial Safety Competency Center and engage in systematic improvement initiatives.
Implementing Natural Disaster Measures
We push ahead with measures to address natural disasters by having each business site conduct self-assessments in line with self-assessment criteria for such measures, and pursue ongoing improvements.
