Approach to Safety

Nikkei MC Aluminium promotes safety and health activities in our domestic and overseas plants. We strive to establish safe, comfortable workplaces with zero occupational accidents.

Action policy

  • 1.To improve and establish safety awareness, we start meetings, including formal meetings and morning assemblies, with discussions involving confirmation, instruction, and notification on safety and health matters.
  • 2.We identify the risk of dangers and hazards in our risk assessments, investigate these issues, and take countermeasures, starting with the high-risk items. We review the relevant work standards and provide safety education.
  • 3.We perform safety and health audits twice a year to check the state of compliance with major laws and regulations; dangers and hazards; safety of machinery; and the status of important items in our safety and health improvement activities. We also take a vigorous approach to incorporating improvements established at other plants.
  • 4.We make sure that risk events and serious near-miss incidents are promulgated across the company to prevent accidents.
