Risk Management System
The status of the activities of each of these committees and councils are reported to the Management Meeting as appropriate and reported to the Board of Directors when deemed necessary.
The following meetings were held in FY 2018:
|Risk Management Committee||Met four times|
|Personal Information Protection Management Committee||Met six times|
|Export Control Committee||Met twice|
|Information Security Committee||Met twice|
Going forward, we will not neglect our daily activities, and we will implement the PDCA cycle by identifying possible risks, considering countermeasures, notifying the parties involved, and conducting verification.
Review of FY 2018 Activities
Verifying employee safety
The O.E. Tire Sales & Marketing Division, which is responsible for sales of tires to automotive manufacturers for fitting to new vehicles, implements safety verification training for relevant personnel several times a year.
Yokohama Tire Japan Co., Ltd., which sells vehicle tires and related products, also carries out safety verification training for its employees based on a disaster scenario.
Being prepared for a disaster (database activation)
This has facilitated the restocking of emergency supplies of which there was a shortage, and made it possible to add new items where needed.
We have also been able to verify the content and frequency of emergency evacuation drills, and the number of people participating, to ensure that personnel can respond promptly in the event of a disaster.
Then, in fiscal 2018, besides re-confirming that business sites have several days’ worth of water, food etc. stockpiled using a database, we also began preparations to enable us to act as an emergency evacuation location for local residents in the event of a disaster.
Disaster prevention initiatives
These activities include the advance prevention for incidents such as small fires at Yokohama Rubber and the establishment of mechanisms in preparation for disasters through risk assessments on natural disasters that have become more extreme and occurring in greater numbers.
We created company-wide guidelines for fire prevention and a framework for fire prevention audits in fiscal 2018, and fire prevention will be conducted on each business and office based on this in fiscal 2019 and later.?
