Group Policy on Health and Safety ManagementSustainability

Basic policy

Regarding corporate behaviors relating to safety and health, we will achieve the followings by instilling a safety culture in each workplace and fostering human assets:

  • (1) Safety first principle, for manufacturing and engineering practices as top priority to safety
  • (2) Creating a comfortable workplace by proactively working on physical and mental health management

Targets

Safety Targets:

Deaths, serious injuries, or lost-worktime accidents 0
Accident frequency rate 0.5 or less


Health Targets:

Work-related illnesses 0
Non work-related injuries and illnesses Days off work frequency rate of 0.38% or less
(Of which, mental health disorders are 0.11% or less)

High-priority issues

(1) Safety
  1. 1) The 2S3TEI system of discipline and good habits
    Implement the 2S3TEI system with thorough discipline to form good habits.
  2. The 2S3tei system is the basis of all work. The 2S of “seiri” for orderly, “seiton” for tidy, the 3tei of “teiichi” for designated position, “teihin” for designated tools, and “teiryo” for designated amount concerning materials, jigs and tools, or in other words, the right item in the right number in the right place should be thoroughly implemented. By implementing this system, the belief is that unsafe practices can be eliminated, work efficiencies can be improved, and a safe working environment can be created, thereby achieving a state of discipline and good habit.
  3. 2) Passing on safety principles
    Actively communicate and build a good relationship that leads to understanding on both sides, the communicator and the one being communicated to, thereby achieving a safe working environment.
  4. Not communicating what you want to say. Not checking how much the other person understands. Pretending to understand what was said. Many accidents are a result of cases where something wasn’t communicated properly, or when advice wasn’t followed even though the advice was given. Most accidents can be prevented if both parties properly understand and consider each other.
    Passing on safety principles means to actively communicate, building a good relationship that leads to understanding on both sides, the communicator and the one being communicated to. In doing so, a safe working environment can be created.
  5. 3) Pointing and calling
    Pointing and calling out whether things are OK when performing a task is a way to reduce errors.
  6. Most occupational accidents are caused by human error through carelessness, not taking notice, or not looking properly. By pointing and calling, as opposed to doing nothing at all, human error is reduced by as much as 6 times, and papers published on the subject also prove its effectiveness.
    Human error can be eliminated by pointing and calling out whether things are OK when performing a task.
(2) Health
  1. 1) Promote health management
    Think about health from a management perspective and understand health issues, strategically putting health management into practice.
  2. 2) Promote mental health care Create a good place to work by promoting these 4 types of care:
    1. Self-care, 2. Line-care, 3. Care from occupational health staff, and 4. Care from resources outside of the workplace.
  3. 3) Promote a good work-life balance and measures against overwork
    Achieve a good work-life balance by implementing a system and measures for optimizing work hours, reducing mental and physical fatigue.
