02Safety Assurance Initiatives

We are aware of our role and responsibilities regarding safety, and we perform our day-to-day work in accordance with the principles of safety first and compliance with laws and regulations.To ensure safety, we have introduced a safety management system and we constantly implement the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.

It is said that accidents result from a chain of various unsafe events. It is important to identify unsafe events in advance and take steps to avoid risks. For this reason, we have established a reporting system to collect information on malfunctions and unsafe events in day-to-day operations, and the information is shared with all employees.

In the event of a malfunction or high-risk event, we conduct a factor analysis and implement preventive or recurrence prevention measures. The measures are regularly evaluated to check their effectiveness.

To ensure safe aviation services, our pilots, mechanics, flight managers and others undergo thorough education and training to acquire a high level of knowledge and skills. On the basis of proper flight and maintenance procedures, we place great emphasis on education and training to enhance safety awareness.

In addition, the Aviation Safety Promotion Committee (chaired by the head of the Aviation Business Division who is also the Aviation Safety Officer), consisting of directors or executive officers from the Aviation Business Division and the Administration Division as well as heads of control departments, meets monthly or as needed. The committee reviews malfunctions and unsafe events and monitors the implementation status of safety measures, and it works closely with on-site Aviation Safety Committee members who are involved in day-to-day operations.

address issues in the safety management system. Through executive-led safety patrols, we also exchange opinions with employees working on site.

Going forward, we will continue to strive to foster a culture of safety and pursue even safer operations and maintenance, centered on the leadership of our executives and the professionalism and sense of responsibility of our front-line workers.
