Promote Safety Culture through Lessons Learned of Excellent Construction for Domestic and Overseas Projects

One of the Chiyoda Group's CSR medium-term policies is to instill in everyone involved that safety is a core value. We make ongoing efforts to ensure all employees fully understand that safety should be their number-one priority.

In order to share knowledge and expertise from both outside and inside Chiyoda about Safety, Quality and the Environment (SQE), the Group has been holding a series of Corporate SQEI Conventions. In July 2015, the 8th Convention titled “Promote a Safety Culture through Lessons Learned of Excellent Construction for Domestic and Overseas projects” was a great success attended by more than 500 ardent participants including corporate management executives. Two (2) projects awarded by incentive scheme of SQE activities in FY2014 have been presented their excellent activities on safety management and shared with all participants. After the presentation, the panel discussion has conducted in order to recognize and study each other in the view points of common or different matter for domestic and overseas projects as well as the matter to be learned or improved. Such panel discussion was also effective for the persons not directly involved the construction to image how important of safety for the construction. In this way, the Group will constantly make efforts to instill the corporate policy “Safety is a core value.”

Occupationed Health and Safety Training in Construction Site

We conduct training for all new workers at both domestic and overseas construction sites, as well as special safety training for those involved in hazardous operations. Safety activities also include TBM* and KYK (kiken yochi katsudo or “hazard identification activities”) prior to the start of construction work. KYK employs a special checklist that workers go over together on a daily basis to confirm hazard prevention measures for the work they will undertake on that particular day.
*TBM (ToolBox Meetings): Meetings held by each work group to confirm safety

Safety Culture of Chiyoda

Placing importance on “safety on the construction site”, Chiyoda Corporation has been promoting its original program “C-SAFE” and fostering a safety culture with the motto “every incident is preventable” as mentioned in the corporate SQE (Safety, Quality and Environmental) policy. In addition, this year we called on all Chiyoda Group employees to remember that a “safety culture begins with each one of you” and asked them to propose a new C-SAFE logo. The response was excellent and a total of 37 proposals were submitted for the competition.

Above is the new logo which was chosen by a vote of all employees. The logo expresses our strong will to ensure that our safety culture passes on to the next generation. The logo perfectly suits the Chiyoda Group and will help focus the eyes of future generations on all the business activities of the Chiyoda Group, and will urge each Group employee to carefully consider the issue of safety and maintain a fresh awareness of “Safety First”.

HSE Management System

Four (4) management systems for occupational safety and health, environment, quality and information security are integrated and commenced to operate since August on 2014. Chiyoda has obtained accreditation of OHSAS18001 in February 2013, which is well known as one of the most authoritative management systems to verify the effectiveness of Chiyoda Management System.

In accordance with the requirements of above integrated management system, every fiscal year, the Chiyoda sets HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) Objectives and formulates an HSE Management Program to achieve such objectives. Based on this program, each project and project unit shall develop their own HSE programs to conduct specific safety management activities. And the safety targets for every fiscal year are established utilizing TRIR (Total Recordable Injury and Illness Rate based on OSHA Standard, USA) The safety target for FY2016(Domestic project) is less than 0.5.

The results of the above actions are shown in the following chart "Chiyoda Construction Job Site Occupational Injury / Illness Frequency Rate and Severity Rate vs. Rate for Japanese Construction Industry (FY2006 to 2015) ".
