Recognition of Issues and Basic Approach
To ensure that employees are able to safely perform their duties, the Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group believes that every employee must increase his or her awareness of safety issues in tandem with developing safe workplace environments. To this end, the Group is giving the highest priority to safety measures for operating facilities, and employee safety training and drills, among other related activities.
At Safety and Health Committee meetings held regularly at each site and plant of Mitsubishi Chemical Holdings Group companies, employees and management seriously discuss everything from the formulation of policies and action plans to the development of specific on-site issues and initiatives for solving them, and reach agreements on these matters.
Implementing Safety Measures
The Group institutes multiple safety measures for operating facilities as well as measures for irregular operations, checking whether they are appropriately applied through auditing and inspections. In addition, all employees are actively engaged in identifying safety risks and making improvements.
Implementing Safety Training and Drills
Through safety training and practical drills, the Group fosters a culture of safety and raises individual awareness of safety issues.

Examples of Activities
■ Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation: Thanks to stronger coordination with business partners, large-scale periodic maintenance work at our chemical plants was completed with zero accidents
At Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation's Mizushima Plant, large-scale regular maintenance of continuously operating facilities including the ethylene plant, which is conducted once every four years, was carried out in fiscal 2013. With the aim of achieving zero accidents during maintenance work, we discussed the various themes, work procedures, rules, the 3S (Sort, Set in order, Shine), and information sharing with business partners during the nine months before the start of work, thereby establishing a task framework. As a result, we achieved zero accidents and injuries.
