The Chiyoda Group has been coping with various risks such as fires, earthquakes, disease, information leakage, compliance violation and terrorist attacks, in addition to its project execution risks in the core business. The Chiyoda Group established its Group BCP and BCM (Business Continuity Management), anticipating various risks that would disrupt its business. The BCP provides the direction and course of action in order to avoid such risks, or recover quickly even if such a disruption may occur, and was known to all employees. When a disaster including a fire/an earthquake or any epidemic, terrorism/turmoil, occurs, and if the impact on the Group is anticipated to be large enough to disrupt its Group business/operation, the Group immediately declares the imposition of BCP.
Then, based on the basic philosophy of “Employees’ safety First”, the Group makes utmost efforts to continue its minimally required important business and to make a quick return to normal operation as well as to contribute to the restoration of communities affected by such a disaster.
Since FY 2015, we have conducted a BCP drill jointly with our domestic subsidiaries; we have conducted a real-time simulation drill* assuming that an inland earthquake measuring 6 on the Japanese scale of seven hit the Tokyo Metropolitan area. All the participants actively gathered information, sorted it out and took measures accordingly.
The results of the drill will be reflected in the BCM. We will analyze the problems found during the drill. Based on the analysis, we will revise the BCP to enhance its effectiveness. The BCP drill will be held annually in the future
* Real-time simulation drill: The participants receive information, or reports on damage, and inquiries chronologically about the events likely to occur within several days from a disaster. The participants sort out a wide variety of information flowing in simultaneously. Based on the information, the participants make decisions and give instructions.
