Promoting Risk Assessment

To achieve the goal of “achieve a tolerable level for all risks by the end of FY2020” we must identify and evaluate all risks for all locations. Fujikura has created Inherently Safety Promotion Team to promote essential safety measures and spread risk assessment techniques to all business locations. We will identify, evaluate, and then deal with all risks posed to our business locations based on priority.

OSHMS* Initiatives

Starting in fiscal 2010, we launched our OSHMS*, confirmed the progress made by each of our works, reviewed the structure, and promoted penetration within our business sites. In fiscal 2016, we started safety inspections at all Group companies in Japan conducted by the Inherently Safety Promotion Team. In fiscal 2017, we continued safety inspections at all locations and evaluated the progress at each location based on the information from the risk assessment system.
