Safety and Health Policy and Slogan Activities

At the beginning of fiscal year 2016, Fujikura's president sent a message about safety to all Fujikura group companies. The message detailed an outline of our goal, ensuring workplace safety and raising top-level awareness in the first year of the '20 mid-term plan. It contained 8 items, including the "Safety Slogan" for FY2016 and the "Safety and Health Activity Pillars."

2016 Fiscal Year Health and Safety Slogan

"Return to the starting point and stop accidents at the root"

Pillars of the 2016 Fiscal Year Health and Safety Action

On April 1st of 2017, Fujikura's president issued the following slogan as his top-level message.
“Take meticulous and exhaustive safety action-let’s aim for zero workplace incidents!”

FY2016 Main Activities

With the occurrence of a serious accident at a group company, we have implemented "Safety Patrols" at all manufacturing bases to investigate their safety. Since previous safety measures consisted primarily of staff safety education, we will begin essential safety measures based on "Essential Safety Design" this fiscal year. As such, we will start to eliminate the hazards that cause accidents, or implement guard measures against contact with hazards. We will strive to prevent disaster occurrences, even during lapses in attention or judgment.

Creating a Comfortable Workplace

Preparing for Large Disasters

Basic Principles and Policies

The Fujikura Group established its business continuity policies in March 2012, and also formulated the business continuity master plan as well as the plan to maintain a functioning headquarters for business continuity.

The Fujikura Group Business Continuity Policy

In line with the following principles, we will foster business continuity management (BCM) so that we can continue to fulfill our corporate social responsibility and supply our products and services in a stable manner even in the event of an emergency.

The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Fujikura Group's Roles

The Fujikura Group keeps the memory of the Great East Japan Earthquake alive by sending the President's message to employees every March 11, while reexamining its disaster control and reduction measures for large earthquakes and raising employees' disaster awareness on a continual basis.

The Fujikura Group CSR Committee participated in the 3rd United Nations World Conference on Disaster Reduction held in Sendai City in March 2015 as part of activities to prepare for huge disasters. Based on the New International Disaster Mitigation Strategy, the Sendai Disaster Reduction Framework for New Disaster Reduction Action Guidelines up to 2030, we reaffirmed the risks in the countries and regions of each group company that is operating globally.

Group Emergency Management Headquarters Training

On December 16th of 2016, we implemented Head Office Emergency Management Headquarters Administration Training and Group Emergency Management Headquarters training for our head office area.

The goal of this training was checking the effectiveness of our company's emergency management headquarters' (manager: general affairs and public information director) new measures for a predicted earthquake directly hitting Tokyo, and confirming whether coordination with the group emergency management headquarters (manager: president) can be run smoothly in the event of a large-scale disaster effecting our production bases or group over a wide area. At the end of the training we had experts rate our efforts, and our checks & actions were rated toward further improving our group's business continuity plan (BCP).

Lecture for Wheelchair Stair Evacuation

In the event of an emergency elevator shut down in a large earthquake, it is necessary for disabled or wounded employees to use the stairs to escape the building. On December 14th of 2016, as part of the emergency response training at our headquarters, we held an employee lecture entitled "Stair Evacuation Tools", for the safe and speedy stair evacuation of disabled employees who cannot stand on their own. At the lecture, representatives from each floor gathered, and after receiving an explanation on the operation, they traded off doing hands-on training in the stair well.

Safety Confirmation System and the "Disaster Control Card" to Be Always Carried by Employees

Based on the idea that individual employees are important assets for the Fujikura Group, we are implementing a range of disaster control measures against large Nankai Trough earthquakes as well as inland earthquakes in the metropolitan area, all of which are predicted to occur in the near future. The disaster control measures include the distribution of "disaster control cards," which employees are always expected to carry, and the operation of the safety confirmation system.
