Systematic Safety Training

Safety training programs are implemented in accordance with the annual plans set by each worksite.
The head office Environmental and Safety Affairs Department organizes safety training programs for all organizations in the company, while each worksite provides training tailored to its own operations.

Training Organized by the Head Office

The head office Environmental and Safety Affairs Department organizes education implemented by the head office and carries out education and training activities at worksites. Through education, we strive to eliminate incidents and workplace accidents and prevent the spread of damage should anything occur. In doing so, our aim is for our worksites to be trusted by their communities.

Manager and Supervisor Training
