Follow-Up Report on Initiatives Being Undertaken Since the Major Accident in March 2018

Following a fatal accident involving the collapse of a bulk bag pile at its worksite in March 2018, the Omuta Plant has implemented various countermeasures, for example, setting up racks at its warehouses, reviewing the allocation of cargo stored in these warehouses and revising operational rules to ensure that conditions are in line with the guidance of the labor standards inspection office. The Omuta Plant has thus enhanced its safety measures from the aspects of operational rules, facilities and technologies and, in March 2020, it completed the introduction of all measures required as a “business operator under the special guidance on safety and health management” stipulated by relevant regulations. In addition, initiatives undertaken by the Omuta Plant are being rolled out at other production bases. These bases completed the review and documentation of procedures for treating a broken bulk bag as well as for other cargo stacking and unstacking operations undertaken at their warehouses while implementing follow-up education for frontline operators.
Looking ahead, the Denka Group will provide its affiliates with briefings on its cargo loading procedures, including rules on how to treat a broken bulk bag, at the earliest possible date. By doing so, the Group will ensure that all worksites are furnished with clearly defined rules and well-documented procedures and that their employees are properly educated to operate safely in accordance with said rules and procedures.
Moreover, the Group will accelerate the execution of facility improvement projects related to safety countermeasures scheduled for each production base while strengthening its focus on risk assessment vis-à-vis cargo loading, the treatment of broken bulk bags and other frontline operations. In these ways, the Group will continuously improve its occupational safety record.
