제24판 긴급사태선언발령에 따른 당사의 대응 및 생산・배송・조달에 대해서

1월 7일(목), 코로나바이러스감염증-19의 감염이 확대됨에 따라 일본 정부가 도쿄도・가나가와현・지바현・사이타마현에 긴급사태선언을 발령하였습니다. 이에 따른 대응에 대해서 알려드립니다.

본사・R&D센터(도쿄)

긴급사태선언 종료시까지 대중교통을 이용한 통근은 금지하고, 지금처럼 독자적인 감염예방책을 실시하면서 가동해나가겠습니다.

공장(히로시마・나가노 사업소)

공장 소재지인 히로시마현, 나가노현에는 긴급사태선언이 발령되지 않았습니다. 따라서 히로시마 사업소(구레 공장・구와바타 공장) 및 나가노 사업소(지노 공장)는 정상 가동하고 있습니다.

전사적인 감염 방지책(예)

  • 대중교통을 이용한 통근은 금지하고, 자동차나 자전거 등 감염 리스크가 낮은 수단으로 출퇴근
  • 히로시마 사업소에서는 통근 수단이 없는 사람을 대상으로 자사 소형버스 운행
  • 가정 내를 포함하여 상시 마스크 착용
  • 사원 본인 및 동가가족의 건강상태에 조금이라도 이상이 있는 경우에는 재택근무 또는 자택대기
  • 매일 아침 체온 등록과 감염 리스크에 노출시 즉시 보고 의무 준수
  • 노출된 감염 리스크 정도에 따라 사무실 동선과 업무 공간 분리

출하・배송

국내・해외 출하 모두 수송 업자의 영업 지속이 가능함을 확인하였습니다. 정말가공장치, Blade/Wheel, 메인터넌스 부품 모두 큰 영향 없이 정상 대응이 가능합니다.

원자재 조달

Blade/Wheel

이미 안내해 드린 바와 같이, 원자재는 통상 생산량의 6개월 이상의 비축량을 유지하면서 인력 확보도 되어있는 상태로 정상 생산체제를 유지하고 있습니다. 고객님 측에서 재고 증량 등으로 일시적으로 많은 주문을 하시는 경우에는 사전에 담당 영업에게 상담하여 주시기 바랍니다.

정밀가공장치

2021년 3월에 출하가 예정된 분량에 대한 부품 조달에는 영향이 없습니다. 부품 공급 업자로부터의 부품 공급이 지연되었을 경우에 대비하여 부품 재고량을 확충해놓고 있으며, 대체품으로 교체하거나 설계 변경 등의 방법으로 생산에 문제가 없도록 대응하겠습니다.

앞으로도 당사 Web사이트에서 신속하게 상황을 알려드리겠습니다.

Employees at the California Office have generally been working from home since March 16 (Monday) in accordance with jurisdictional instruction. However, the Processing Service Department, of which the employees were members, handles processing of next-generation materials for R&D departments for semiconductor and electrical component manufacturers mainly based domestically in the U.S., and also conducts developmental work in the fields of 5G, IoT, aerospace, and aviation. DISCO HI-TEC AMERICA received a formal request from a customer who acquired an Essential Service Certificate, and for that reason, those performing the processing were commuting to the office with the permission of the government.
The chain of events and how the situation was handled are as follows.

Thurthday, July 16
  • Employee A had a fever (39℃) that morning. He visited a doctor and took a PCR test instead of going in to the office.
  • The entire California office was shut down, and all employees in the Processing Service Department who had planned to go in to the office stayed home.
  • Employee hearings were conducted in accordance with CDC standards. Confirmed that Employee B had close contact with Employee A (used the same car).

  • The PCR test results for Employee A came back positive.

Wednesday, July 22
  • The Processing Service Division in the California Office resumed operations.
Sunday, July 26
  • The PCR test results for Employee B came back positive.

Moreover, close contact between Employee C and Employee B, who also shared a car, was confirmed separately. Employee C took the PCR test and the results are pending. Therefore, the Processing Service Division of the California Office is currently operating with the exception of the three employees stated above (two PCR infected and one with internal close contact).

DISCO will continue carrying out the thorough infection prevention measures that have been implemented group-wide and will work hard to provide a stable supply of products and solutions.

Blade/Wheel

2월 26일자 제5보에서 알려드린 바와 같이, 원재료에 대해서는 통상 생산량의 6개월 이상을 상시비축하고 있습니다. 따라서, 현재 생산출하에는 일절 영향이 없습니다.

정밀가공장치

2020년 4월 및 5월 출하가 예정된 장치는 모두 계획대로 생산및 출하에 전혀 연기등의 차질이 없는 것으로 확인되었습니다. 6월 이후에 대해서는COVID-19 감염이 세계적으로 확산되고 있기 때문에, 물류망을 포함하여 앞으로의 상황을 주시하면서 대응해 나가도록 하겠습니다.

직원에 대한 감염 방지 및 사내 감염 확산 방지책에 대해서

주요 생산 거점인 히로시마 사업소(쿠레 공장, 쿠와바타 공장)에서는 하기 대책을 실시하고 있습니다.

통근시

감염예방을 위하여, 평소 대중교통을 이용하여 출퇴근 하고 있는 직원들을 대상으로, 자가용차에 합승하여 출퇴근 하도록 장려하고 있고, 그 외에도 히로시마 사업소 및 쿠레 공장에서는 전용 전세통근버스를 이용하여 직원을 픽업하고 있습니다.

사내 감염 방지

두 공장에서는 사내에서의 연쇄적 감염을 방지하기 위해, 직원용출입구,·화장실,·회의실,·식당 등의 사내 설비와 복리후생시설에 대해서 “Blade/Wheel 제조부문”과 “기타부문”의 동선을 분리함과 동시에 이용 제한을 실시하고 있습니다.

또한, 히로시마 사업소를 포함하여 전사적으로 하기와 같은 대책을 실시하고 있습니다.

자택 출발 전

이전부터 실시하고 있던 매일 아침 체온 측정 후 사내 시스템에의 등록과 더불어, 이상 체온이 기록될 경우에는 핸드폰으로 문진표를 기입하여 보건사와 연락을 취할 수 있게 함으로써, 감염이 의심되는 직원을 조기에 발견할 수 있도록 하고 있습니다.

통근 시

대중교통 이용시에는 상시 마스크 착용을 의무화 하는 것 외에도 시차출퇴근제를 실시하여 감염 리스크를 감소시키기 위해 노력하고 있습니다.

사옥 진입 시

직원은 손 소독을 하고 마스크를 교체한 후 진입하고 있습니다. 고객 내방 시에는, 사내 감염 우려가 있는 분에 대해서는 진입을 금하고 있습니다. 담당자가 사전에 해외 도항 이력, 건강 상태에 대해서 확인하는 것 외에도 출입 시 체온 측정, 손 소독 및 새로운 마스크로 교체하도록 안내해드리고 있습니다.

근무 중, 점심 식사 시

근무 중에는 상시 마스크 착용을 의무화 하였고, 마스크를 착용하지 않은 상태로 이루어지는 직원 간 및 내방객과의 대화를 금지하고 있습니다.

관내 소독

화장실과 엘레베이터, 손잡이 등의 공용 부분을 정기적으로 소독하고 있습니다.

해외 도항

업무상 해외 도항을 금지하였고, 사적으로도 해외 도항을 자숙하도록 요청하였습니다. 도항한 경우에는 귀국 후 14일간 재택근무를 실시한 후, 증상이 없는 경우에 한해 출근이 가능합니다.

기타

직원 가족이 감염원이 되지 않도록, “가정 내에서의 감염증 예방행동 계획서”의 제출을 의무화하였습니다. BCM 전담부서가 바이러스의 리스크에 대한 교육 자료를 작성하여, 가족에게 쉽게 설명할 수 있도록 배려하였습니다.

감염자가 발생한 경우의 대응

감염자는 휴업하도록 하고 소속 부서 주변을 소독합니다. 또한 사내에서의 밀접 접촉이나 2차 감염 발생에 대해서는, 근무 중 상시 마스크 착용 등의 상기의 대책으로 억제가 가능하다고 보고 있지만, 그럼에도 불구하고 감염 가능성이 있는 직원에 대해서는 14일간 재택근무를 지시합니다.
그리고, 휴업 시에는 과거에 사용하지 않아 취득 기한이 지난 유급 휴가를 사용할 수 있게 하는 등, 근태 제도를 유연하게 변경하여 직원이 안심하고 쉴 수 있는 환경을 정비하고 있습니다.

고객 여러분께 공급에 대한 책임을 다하기 위해서 앞으로도 상황에 따라 바람직한 대책을 실시해 나가겠습니다.

5th Rep. Production Status of DISCO Product

This is a follow-up announcement regarding the production status of DISCO products in response to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Precision Processing Tools

As stated in the fourth report on February 13, because DISCO keeps at least a six-month supply of raw materials in stock for standard production, production and shipment are currently unaffected. By continually replenishing the raw material stock, DISCO will maintain a system that enables production without a reduction in stock.

정밀가공장치

It has been confirmed that all equipment scheduled for shipment in March and April will be produced and shipped as planned.
After May, we will continue to monitor the situation as some component parts are produced by suppliers in China, depending on the specification. In addition, it was confirmed that there are no production delays at the relevant suppliers after resuming operation on Monday, February 10, and there are parts in stock either in China or Japan. If the situation persists and there is concern regarding parts supply, we will respond by switching to replacement parts, etc., to ensure undelayed production and shipment.

4th Rep. Production status of DISCO product

In response to the spread of the novel coronavirus, this is an announcement regarding the production status of DISCO products.

Precision Processing Tool

Because DISCO keeps a 6-month supply of raw materials in stock as part of our BCM (business continuity management) measures, production and shipment are currently unaffected. We are also continuously replenishing this stock to ensure a constant supply to maintain our production and shipment schedule.

정밀가공장치

Equipment scheduled for shipment during February 2020 will be produced and shipped without any delay. During and after March, standard specification equipment can be produced and shipped as scheduled. However, because some suppliers of component parts base production in China, depending on the specification, there are some concerns regarding future supply. The aforementioned suppliers resumed operations on Monday, February 10, 2020, but it has been confirmed that the operation rate has fallen due to factors such as remote work. If the situation becomes prolonged, DISCO will proceed with measures such as switching to alternative suppliers with whom DISCO has built relationships and design changes to ensure stable production and shipment.

Status updates will be provided on the DISCO website as the situation develops.
