Safety, Health, and Disaster Prevention Management

Safety, Health, and Disaster Prevention Management System

At the Toyo Tires Group, the “Safety & Emergency Management Subcommittee” and “Environment & Health Subcommittee” of the “Safety & Environment Committee” discuss and formulate a mid-term plan and annual guidelines for safety, health and disaster prevention; define priority measures based on those; and communicate those throughout the company via the working group for each business segment. With members of the labor union also taking part in the committee, subcommittees, and working groups, management and labor work together to promote activities.

The subcommittee meets every two months, at which time it conducts various activities, including checking the implementation status of the guidelines at each working group and business site, following up on accident recurrence prevention activities, and checking improvement activities. Top management and senior officers of the labor union visit all business sites each year to inspect the implementation status of the guidelines and measures first-hand.
