In the social dimension of CSR, Torishima carries out various activities for all its stakeholders.
Torishima has been certified for ISO 9001, an international standard on quality management systems. This assures we deliver products, engineering, and maintenance services of a quality that satisfies customers and earns their trust.

We are also increasing the number of ISO 9001 certified business establishments at domestic and overseas subsidiaries and branch offices.
Torishima contributes to society through business activities that include the development and manufacture of pumps and related products. At the same time, we regard creating a safe, healthy environment—one where employees can work free of worries and where their health is maintained or even enhanced—as the basis of our QCD (quality, cost, and delivery) actions. We have thus formulated a basic policy on safety and health and are building a culture of safety and health that aims for a virtuous cycle. And we seek to be a vibrant company that continues to grow forever.
In April 2010, Torishima obtained certification for its occupational safety and health management systems (OSHMS) from the Japan Industrial Safety and Health Association (JISHA), based on standards established by JISHA, and is continuing to implement occupational safety and health activities. As part of these, Torishima is conducting risk assessments, mainly in its manufacturing departments. These assessments are aimed at determining the risk level, including the frequency, probability, and seriousness of potential hazards and toxicity and taking measures to reduce this risk.
Torishima has prepared a BCP manual and gives instruction to employees on proper behavior during times of disaster. As part of these measures, a disaster drill to prepare for possible major disasters (including earthquakes and fires) was held on November 12, 2013. To ensure the safety of employees in the event of such a disaster, Torishima has reviewed and collected information on its action plans and manuals for taking emergency action in cases of disasters, including its Business Continuity Plan. The November 2013 drill was held under the assumption that an earthquake of magnitude 6 has occurred, and all departments in the Torishima headquarters participated.
Every year, Torishima visits local elementary schools in Japan to teach children about pumps, manufacturing, and other topics. This gives us the opportunity to contribute to the local community and to children’s education while also boosting the skills and motivation of Torishima employees.
Torishima actively offers educational opportunities and support, such as providing technical training on pumps and on-the-job training for new employees. We also offer grants to help employees obtain a Ph.D. in engineering or a national technical qualification, and we facilitate distance learning and seminars by outside organizations to boost employees’ skills. “Seeing is believing” is the motto for Torishima’s overseas on-site training for young employees. The goal of this intensive training program is to enable employees to identify customer needs and the seeds of new business beyond national boundaries.
In addition, as part of CSR education, we conduct CSR training once a year.
