The Yamaha Group has established specialized training curricula for employees engaged in areas that require specialized knowledge, including personnel involved in waste management, wastewater treatment facility operation and management, and chemical substance management. Specialized training sessions are conducted after defining and compiling lists of the skills required for processes that have a particularly large impact on the environment and examining the related educational needs. Furthermore, staff of the Environmental Division of Yamaha Corporation perform follow-up monitoring regarding the education of employees responsible for the aforementioned tasks at overseas factories. For example, wastewater managers at Xiaoshan Yamaha Musical Instruments Co., Ltd., in China have received such specialized training in Japan.
In addition, we provide education related to chemical substance management and the prevention of accidents such as leaks of environmental pollutants based on the Yamaha Group Chemical Substances Usage Standard and the Yamaha Group Environmental Equipment Standards. Emergency response drills are also performed.
Furthermore, Yamaha’s technical academy program includes the Eco-design Course for product planners, developers, and designers through which education on eco-friendliness in products is provided.
