Auditing

We perform a number of audits to evaluate management systems and determine whether they are functioning normally.

Responsible Care audits in the workplace target Environmental and Safety affairs with the head of the Environmental and Safety Affairs Department as the head auditor. Audits are carried out in two parts - Responsible Care Audits and Responsible Care dialogues.

Responsible Care Audits

  • Monitor progress of Responsible Care activities from a specialized viewpoint
  • This audit also covers audits for workplaces certified as high-pressure gas safety (completeness) inspectors
  • Check progress of improvement in auditing indicators with the “Indicator improvement planning and implementation report.”

Responsible Care Dialogues

  • A venue for thinking, discussing and solving environmental and safety issues in the workplace that are hard to extract from auditing between worksite members and management
Group company Responsible Care audits cover progress with group company Responsible Care activities with the head of the Environmental and Safety Affairs Department as the head auditor. We check progress of improvement in auditing indicators with the “Annual Worksite Environmental and Safety Activities Plans.”
  • Fiscal 2015: Conducted for ten offices in eight group companies
