The Oji Group’s BCP Initiatives

The Oji Group’s BCP Initiatives

The Oji Group has implemented the following initiatives to handle business continuity risks, such as natural disasters and accidents.

Establishment of a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and Business Continuity Management (BCM) Systems

At the Oji Group, we engage in business continuity management (BCM) by having each COMPANY formulate a business continuity plan (BCP) and review it as necessary.
We constantly review and improve our crisis response system through training on the establishment of Group emergency headquarters and the inspection and maintenance of necessary facilities, equipment, and other items, in our efforts to maintain and improve our initial response capability.

Emergency Response

To ensure a prompt initial response to emergencies, the Oji Group has established a system for reporting and collecting information around the clock.
In the event of a serious incident to be addressed by the overall Group, we establish the Group emergency headquarters to confirm the safety of employees, check the damage suffered, and take prompt measures to continue supplying products to our customers.
With the safety of employees as our highest priority, we implement measures that enable employees to suspend outings and outdoor works, postpone attendance at work, leave work early, or avoid returning home in cases where it would be dangerous to do so.

Building a Group Disaster Control System

We have established the Group Disaster Control Office as a permanent organization and formulated rules on the reporting of disaster and accident information, thereby establishing a system for obtaining the latest information promptly. We also share information about the causes of disasters and accidents, and other information across the Group, and work to minimize damage.

Earthquake Countermeasures The Group is progressively implementing countermeasures, after conducting earthquake resistance surveys.
Tsunami Countermeasures To prepare for tsunami, the Group has obtained hazard maps from local governments and identified and secured safe areas inside buildings (by indicating altitudes, evacuation areas, and other information).
Fire Countermeasures Voluntary inspections are conducted at each business site and disaster control inspections are conducted as preventive initiatives.
Emergency Supplies Water, food, and other items are stockpiled at each business site in preparation for emergencies.

Implementation of Regular Safety Confirmation Training and Comprehensive Disaster Drills

We conduct nationwide safety confirmation training twice a year, thereby maintaining a system that places maximum priority on human life. In addition, a comprehensive disaster drill is conducted regularly at each business location.
