Risk Management

Basic policy

The Yaskawa Group has established the following basic policies for risk management in its “Basic Rules for Crisis Management”.

  • Establish a crisis management system in Yaskawa Group to raise awareness and prevent crisis.
  • Clarify the procedures to be followed in the event of a crisis, and minimize the impact on management and business operations by responding promptly and appropriately in the event of a crisis.

Promotion system

The Risk Management Committee has been established as a company-wide committee to discuss and take measures against various risks facing Yaskawa.
In addition, Group companies in Japan and overseas have appointed crisis information managers in charge of crisis management and are engaged in risk management.

Risk management initiatives

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have established a crisis headquarters as an urgent and serious matter. Specifically, we collect information, make regular reports to management and crisis information managers, and raise awareness within the Group to protect the lives and health of employees and their families and minimize the impact on business operations. In addition, the status of implementation of measures against these important risks is reported regularly at the Management Committee and the Board of Directors.
In addition, the Company has established a Disaster Countermeasures Committee and has formulated a business continuity plan that assumes disasters (major earthquakes, river flooding, etc.) in each region to minimize the risks to business operations from natural disasters.
