Occupational Health and Safety

承認:エディタ

Employee health and safety forms the foundation for our corporate activities. As a part of the manufacturing industry, we realize that the physical and mental health of all of our employees is a key factor in continuing operations with safety at the forefront. Under this recognition, we will strive to create and maintain workplaces where employees can work with peace of mind, and will continuously work to create environments in which accidents do not happen.

Occupational Health and Safety Policy and System

Occupational Health and Safety Policy
Recognizing that, based on principles of respect for people, the securing of safety takes priority over all other activities and that health forms the foundation for corporate activity, our Company engages in business in accordance with the following provisions.

  1. We will eliminate risk factors related to occupational health and safety in the workplace, strive to create comfortable workplaces, and promote the maintenance and improvement of physical and mental health.
  2. We will build a health and safety management system that includes occupational health and safety policies, and will maintain its appropriateness, validity, and effectiveness by making continuous improvements.
  3. We will make occupational health and safety policies and other necessary matters known to all persons who work at the Company, and will work to enhance awareness of health and safety.
  4. We will comply with laws and regulations related to occupational health and safety management systems, with agreements concluded by the Company, and with matters set forth in internal rules.

Systems for occupational health and safety
Our health and safety system is composed of a district organization that consists of employees working at our sites and a company-wide organization that coordinates the district organizations. (See the health and safety organization chart.)
 Our Company-wide Health and Safety Conference is convened in accordance with our Company-wide Health and Safety Conference Regulations. Its members are the heads of the Human Resources & General Affairs Dept. and its General Affairs Section, the heads of the Nasu, Yaita, Sano, Hanno, and Tanuma plants, and a matching number of labor union members (usually the Central Executive Committee). As a rule, the Conference convenes once a year to consider the revision and abolition of regulations concerning health and safety, and to discuss the content of regulations.
 The Company-wide Health and Safety Secretariat Liaison Conference is convened every month before the Health and Safety Committee meeting in each district. The districts’ Committee secretariats gather to discuss and exchange information on agendas for respective Health and Safety Committee meetings, matters that should be shared across organizations, company-wide initiatives, and more. Labor unions do not participate.
