The president and representative director oversees the operations, and the EHS Management Center works to strengthen group governance and improve health and safety management. Establishment of Safety Pledge Day In response to the serious accidents that occurred at our domestic affiliates in April 2016, we have established April 11, the day of the accidents, as the "Safety Pledge Day" for the Fujikura Group, as a day for all Fujikura Group employees to pledge their strong commitment to safety to "never cause another serious accident". In addition, we issued the "Safety Pledge" on the same day. On the same day every year, the "Day of Safety Pledge" (message from the president) is distributed to all Fujikura Group companies in Japan and overseas to renew the pledge. Our Safety Pledge We will never repeat the same accident again! We will put safety first in all of our actions! We will realize an accident-free workplace for the sake of our coworkers and families! Intrinsic Safety and Risk Assessment In health and safety management, proactive activities such as risk assessment are positioned as important activities to reduce occupational accidents. since 2016, we have been continuing these activities in a common way across the Fujikura Group, including overseas, and they have become established as activities with a sense of unity regardless of the nature of the business or the size of the site The activities have become firmly established as a unified activity, regardless of the nature of the business or the size of the site. For the identified risks, risk reduction activities are conducted based on the concept of intrinsic safety. All risks are managed and analyzed in a database system and used to promote risk reduction activities. We will continue to strengthen our activities to identify potential risks and reduce all risks to an acceptable level. We believe that this is a never-ending activity with the goal of fostering a culture of safety based on the common issue of "making all risks at an acceptable level. Introduction of Occupational Health and Safety Management System We have been operating an OHSMS (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) since FY2010, and acquired certification for the Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard (ISO 45001 - 2018) in FY2022 within the framework of integrating the head office and each business site. We will effectively incorporate the requirements of the standard into the improvement of operations and efficiency of each business, and operate the management system so that we can make continuous improvements toward building and fostering a mutually enlightening safety culture in which all employees can proactively point out each other's dangerous behaviors and so on. *OHSMS: Occupational Health and Safety Management System Safety and Health Slogan and Activities Fiscal Year 2022 Health and Safety Slogan Slogan “Let’s all be proactive and take half a step forward to create a work environment free of serious accidents and health hazards!” The slogan "Let’s all be proactive" plays an essential part in vitalizing and sustaining health and safety activities. This means acting as the driving force behind activities by taking action ourselves, rather than leaving things to others or taking a passive attitude. While it may be difficult to leap forward one step, I believe that if we can take half a step forward, we will surely establish a foothold in the process of making improvements.

Major Activities of FY2021 The EHS Control Center conducts periodic health and safety inspections at all Group company sites to check health and safety management activities, identify risks, and provide various types of guidance. In fiscal year 2021, the inspections were conducted at about 50 Group company sites in Japan and overseas, although many were held remotely due to COVID-19. In fiscal 2021, as part of these activities, we held lectures on occupational health and safety management systems and chemical substance management, as well as hazard simulation training. The Fujikura Group Safety and Health Conference is held twice a year to align the direction of such activities, communicate messages from management, and provide an opportunities to share various kinds of information and discuss them among team members.

The Fujikura Group Business Continuity Policy (Established in March 2012) 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. 1.Give first priority to the lives and safety of Group employees and their families 2.Make concerted efforts to ensure business continuity across the Fujikura Group 3.Implement precautionary measures to protect the assets indispensable for business continuity 4.Contribute to society by continuing to conduct the social infrastructure support business 5.Fulfill the Group’s responsibility in the global supply chain Group Emergency Management Headquarters Drill On February 7, 2020, a Group Disaster Response Headquarters drill was conducted. This drill is an exercise in the form of problem solving and aims to share the awareness of the Group Disaster Response Headquarters and qualitatively improve the ability to respond to disasters by simulating actions for response to disasters. The base scenario for this drill was widespread flood damage in every region nationwide and a heightened risk of overflow and flooding in Koto-ku. It assumed flooding of the head office building and the actions that should be taken in response were considered. Afterward, specialists evaluated the drill and confirmed checks and actions to further improve the Group's Business Continuity Plan (BCP). Headquarters Disaster Countermeasure Training On January 27, 2020, a disaster headquarters drill was conducted at the head office. The purpose of the drill was to ensure that the disaster information gathering and system would function effectively by actually performing the initial response to the establishment of a disaster headquarters at the head office in the event of an earthquake directly under the Tokyo metropolitan area. The drill starts with the gathering of all task force members after the occurrence of the earthquake. Through this training, participants will confirm and learn how to quickly assemble each team member, quickly set up the equipment necessary for the headquarters to function, and start up the equipment. The activities of the task force will also be included in the training. Through the training, participants will learn how to confirm the safety of employees, gather information on building conditions, infrastructure, traffic conditions, etc., and how to respond quickly and accurately to various problems that may arise. During this drill, we also used an emergency power supply for backup in case of a power outage at the head office during the drill. After the drill, each group reflected on their experiences and identified areas for improvement for the next drill, leading to improvements in the head office's Basic Plan for the Continuity of Functions (BCP). Disaster Drill at Head Office In fiscal 2021, while it has become difficult to conduct conventional overall action drills due to measures to prevent new coronavirus infection, we conducted web-based training drills, referring to guidance from the fire department and public trends. The training exercise consisted of viewing videos and Tokyo Fire Department training videos to help participants visualize the changes in in-house disaster prevention activities and initial actions in consideration of the corona disaster and post-corona. Stairway Evacuation Wheelchair Training When elevators stop working due to fire or earthquake, it is necessary to evacuate physically disabled or injured employees from the upper floors of the building to the outside of the building by using the stairs. Fujikura's head office is equipped with "stairway evacuation equipment" to enable safe and quick evacuation in such cases, and although we cancelled an employee training session on this equipment in fiscal 2021 due to the Corona disaster, we plan to hold the session in fiscal 2022. Safety Confirmation System and the "Disaster Control Card" which can be carried by Employees Based on the idea that individual employees are important assets for Fujikura, 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 expected to carry, and the operation of the safety confirmation system. Safety Confirmation System Since 2010, Fujikura has introduced a safety confirmation system to confirm the safety of employees and their families in the event of a disaster. The information gathered by this system is promptly reported to top management and utilized in our BCP. "Disaster Control Card" which can be carried by Employees The Fujikura distributes disaster control cards to employees. To help employees protect themselves in the event of a disaster, the card contains information on items that are essential for the protection of their lives, such as actions to be taken in each region during a large earthquake, a checklist to prepare for disasters, and responses to be made with regard to the safety confirmation system. Anti-Disaster Activities at each Works On October 9, 2019, the Suzuka works conducted a comprehensive disaster drill at the plant under the guidance of the Suzuka City Fire Department on the assumption of a large-scale earthquake. After evacuation drills, first aid drills, firefighting activities, and water spraying drills by the self-defense fire brigade were conducted. We will continue to conduct daily drills to be prepared for "unexpected disasters. Numazu works conducted a disaster drill on September 26, 2019, assuming the occurrence of a sudden earthquake. The training included primary and secondary evacuation drills, firefighting drills, and a lecture on how to use an AED by a specialist. We will further improve our awareness of disaster prevention on a daily basis so that we can respond calmly in case of an emergency.
