It is indispensable to raise the awareness of our individual employees for chemicals management from product development to disposal (product stewardship). We provide them with training programs to acquire knowledge to comply with regulations and handle products correctly, and spread the knowledge across the supply chain in order to establish a corporate culture that protects human health and the environment.
The chemicals management training program comprises the following three courses; e-learning, basic seminar course and advanced course:
|E-Learning||We provide employees with a basic knowledge of chemical safety management to ensure the safety of our products and legal compliance. Educational records are managed by an internal system.|
|ScopeAll employees in business and R&D Laboratory and all line managers of works and indirect departments|
|Basic seminar course||ScopeEmployees who need to acquire concrete handling methods|
|Advanced course||Learning about chemicals specific to a certain product or application, such as food packaging materials.|
|ScopeEmployees involved in specific types of products and purposes|
Other than the courses listed above, the Chemicals Safety Department provides the RC officers in purchasing and procurement divisions, business sectors, R&D centers, and information system divisions with the following information in monthly meetings to keep up their knowledge levels, as well as confirming that they undertake designated actions, and to provide support to them. RC officers spread the information they acquire across their respective divisions and report back on related actions undertaken to the Chemicals Safety Department.
