Reinforcement of Safety Training

The Technical Training Center is working to strengthen safety training. For example, it provides the foreman or delegate (assistant to the foreman) with foreman-level training to enhance their abilities to make decisions on emergency measures as the conductor. This is the only advanced training in Japan we have developed in-house. Participants form an operation team to operate a training plant modified from the desulfurization unit that was actually in operation at Tokuyama Complex. Participants conduct practical training in the event of an abnormality at night or on a holiday by reporting and conducting initial activities, emergency shutdown, and disaster prevention activities while the incident is progressing. In addition, safety management training is provided to newly-appointed technical managers at refineries and complexes. This training is divided into two parts. Each participant reconfirms the points of safety management in the basic training, and recognizes the issues and clarifies the action plan to strengthening safety in the follow-up training. In addition, we hold experiential training for governments and organizations, and as part of cooperative human resource development for local communities, we hold seminars to raise safety awareness utilizing our risk sensing equipment and VR in cooperation with outside training centers. These training and seminars have received high reputation from outside the Company.
