Business Continuity Policy (BCP)

Business Continuity Policy

CONTINUITY

When a major disaster, such as an earthquake, tsunami, etc. occurs in Japan or its surrounding area, EJEC will not only endeavor to ensure the safety of its employees and their families and the preservation of assets, etc. but will also perform the social responsibility of the company by means of continuing its existing business activities nationwide, smoothly and swiftly implement surveys and inspection of the damage as well as rehabilitation and reconstruction work, all of which are called for in disaster-hit areas, to earn the further trust of its clients by such response to a disaster.
EJEC has prepared and is operating the Business Continuity Policy (BCP) to firmly implement the above-mentioned efforts to continue its business activities. EJEC formulates an action program in accordance with this Policy, checks the implementation situation every year and revises the Policy when necessary.

In December, 2016, EJEC was registered in the “business continuity” category of the certification scheme for organizations contributing to national resilience (Resilience Certification). In 2018, EJEC was additionally registered in the “social contribution” category for emergency inspection through the Japan Civil Engineering Consultants Association, research activities through the EJ-Research Center for Disaster Risk Mitigation, disaster survey reports on HP and other activities were recognized to constitute “social contribution”. Taking such recognition as an opportunity, EJEC is determined to refine its wide-ranging activities with a view to further contributing to the improvement of Japan’s disaster prevention strength.
