HSSE Activities & Programs
JGC Corporation initiated the Safety Day corporate-wide, including all subsidiaries and overseas projects, after a tragic traffic accident occurred in 2011 in Abu Dhabi, where five (5) people lost their lives. The initiative aims to dedicate a day to reflect on safety as a core value in all of JGC’s everyday business operations and activities, and to remind everybody of the tragic road accident. The safety day is held every year sometime around June and July. The JGC safety day includes various safety related activities, such as safety demonstrations, role plays, safety moment sharing, safety forum, safety committee, safety workshops, etc. and which are held in all of JGC’s operations, including the following:
