The Shindengen Group is committed to promoting health and safety throughout the entire Group.
Health and Safety Activitie
An Eenvironmental manager at Shindengen Philippines entered the logo creation contest for the Advocates, Leaders and Professionals in Environment Safety and Health (ALPrESH), and their logo design (shown below) won. This logo has a caduceus representing health, a plant representing the environment, a hard hat representing safety, and a gear representing the manufacturing industry, all surrounded by three leaves formed by interlocking hands. This represents the collaborative relationships among members to encourage self-awareness and initiatives for health, the environment, and safety as promoted by Shindengen Philippines.
Additionally, Shindengen Philippines was acclaimed for displaying exemplary partnership concerning
the health and welfare of the local community as a whole when it came to COVID-19 vaccination. It was
therefore awarded a certificate by the Philippines Department of Health in 2022.

Acquisition of ISO 45001 Certification
The Asaka Office of Shindengen Electric Mfg. Co., Ltd. (Asaka City, Saitama Prefecture) and Okabe Shindengen Co., Ltd. (Fukaya City, Saitama Prefecture) acquired the international standard for occupational health and safety management systems ISO 45001 certification.
ISO 45001 defines the construction and operation of systems that provide safe and healthy workplaces and prevent injuries and diseases related to the labor of working people. Since being published in 2018, the standard has spread around the world, especially in Europe, where interest is particularly high for occupational health and safety.
The Shindengen Group strives to continually improve occupational health and safety, upgrades work environments focused on employee health and safety, enhances productivity, and ensures business continuity.
Establishment of the Shindengen Group Health and Safety Policy
In September 2021, to meet the requirements of ISO 45001, we formulated an occupational health and safety policy covering the entire Shindengen Group with the aim of further enhancing our occupational health and safety activities.
Traffic Safety Activity
The Shindengen Group has established the ‘Traffic Leadership Committee’ to manage the prevention of traffic accidents during everyday operations, whilst commuting, and whilst our employees are on business trips, incorporating local opinions.
The Asaka Office of Shindengen Electric Manufacturing Co., Ltd. became a participant in the Cycling Etiquette Improvement and Safety Promotion Company project directed by the Saitama Prefectural Police in April 2023. It was the first company to participate among the offices and companies in Asaka City, and it has received written directives from the Chief of Asaka Police Station. The goal of the Cycling Etiquette Improvement and Safety Promotion Company project is for companies to voluntarily engage in activities concerning the safe use of bicycles in order to help prevent bicycle accidents. The number of people who commute by bicycle has increased due to the avoidance of public transport during the COVID-19 pandemic, and due to greater interest in health, so we will continue to carry out education and information campaigns for our employees in order to improve their etiquette.

As an excellent organization addressing traffic safety problems, Lumphun Shindengen received the Prime Minister Road Safety Award from Thailand’s prime minister in December 2021.
We are continuing our traffic safety initiatives in FY 2022 as well, including by conducting free inspections for our employees' cars and motorcycles and safe driving lessons with the cooperation of local companies.

Activities on Disaster Prevention and Response
The Great East Japan Earthquake (2011) and floods in Thailand are recent reminders of the importance of having a disasterresponse plan in place. The Shindengen Group’s Business Continuity Plan (BCP) ensures risks are managed appropriately at times of large-scale disaster. The Business Continuity Management (BCM) Committee has strengthened the disaster-response and businesscontinuity measures in place to protect employees and businesses.
Overseas Group companies that handle production periodically hold disaster prevention drills tailored to the characteristics of their countries. In addition, domestic Group companies that handle production work to raise awareness of disaster prevention by conducting annual comprehensive fire drills, including water-discharge exercises, to ensure that every employee can practice what they are expected to do in emergencies.
Products that Contribute to Safety
In line with its corporate mission, the Shindengen Group develops, designs, produces, and sells eco-friendly technology spanning a wide range of fields, namely mobility, the environment and energy, industrial machinery, data and communications, and home appliances. This technology can also be used in fields that protect people’s lives and livelihoods, contributing to safety.
With modern vehicles continuing to become more electric, computerized, and network-connected, they are being installed with an increasingly wide variety of electronic control units (ECUs). Shindengen Electric Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has begun sales of the MF2003SV IC V-Diode TM, an ideal diode for reverse connection protection and reverse current prevention uses, for car electronics such as ECUs.*
By integrating a Pch MOSFET with a reverse connection protection and reverse current prevention circuit, this product contributes to low loss for electronic devices. It also contributes to downsizing through a reduced mounting area and number of components compared to conventional diodes.
*For protecting ECUs against automobile battery reverse connection, and for preventing reverse current from flowing from the inside of the ECU to the battery and protecting other ECUs
