Cataler has overcome the disadvantages of being located near the coast and within the hypocentral region of a major earthquake. We promote an independent risk management philosophy called C-BCM for the realization of human safety and continued product supply.
C‐BCM：Cataler-Business Continuity Management
Both hardware and software measures are accounted for should a major earthquake ever occur.
In addition to conventional earthquake-proofing and falling object measures for buildings and facilities, and the prevention of dangerous substance leaks from tanks, a dedicated seawall was successfully installed in 2014.
Other measures include the backup of information systems vital to business continuity and the storage of food reserves for victims unable to get home.
Along with tsunami evacuation drills and fire drills, simulations are also conducted to boost information processing capabilities during disaster times as part of ongoing activities to ensure emergencies are thoroughly responded to.
The C-QIC (Cataler–Quality Innovation Challenge) initiative was introduced in 2012 to enable all group companies to create defect-free processes, facilities that don't breakdown, and business processes that don't fail. C-QIC is a method of continually improving product quality and work quality through implementing of a SDCA cycle.
Our company develops and implements PDCA from SDCA for further quality enhancements.
Completion of one's work requires the standardization of work processes in order for the previous and following jobs to be satisfied.
Subdivide work procedure in accordance with the worker's skill ⇒ WISDOM, creation of work instruction sheet
（note:Work Instruction Sheet for Divisioal Operation Management＝ work instruction sheet for staff）
Master registration of persons well versed in this process ⇒ actualization of experience, intuition
Crystallization of good conditions and evaluation standards for subdivision work. Constant monitoring and revision of validity of procedures and operations ⇒ WISDOM, evolution of work instruction sheet
Work results, rework and work progress are evaluated to counter the actual cause of the operation which had an issue.
Furthermore, the work responsible for constructing the problematic operation's mechanism is also dealt with appropriately.
