Chemical Substance Management

We are improving our chemical substance management system to ensure safety and prevent environmental pollution.

Chemical Substance Management

To protect employees from exposure to chemical substances and prevent health hazards, Chugai has established voluntary rules for chemical substance management and provides suitable work environments based on the results of risk assessments of the substances handled and the type of work. After protective equipment is selected, operations and procedures are determined.
By providing information in the form of safety data sheets (SDSs) and emergency contact cards (“yellow cards”), we also work to ensure safety at our contract manufacturers and other outside parties.
The amount of chemical substances handled in the April 2014-March 2015 period covered by PRTR law* is as shown on the graph. While the amount of dichloromethane handled fell, the amount of N,N-dimethylformamide and acetonitrile increased in association with increased production activity. As a result, the total amount of substances covered under PRTR law increased significantly, up 85% versus the April 2013-March 2014 period to 25.6 tons.
