Promoting employee health is positioned as the foundation for promoting D&I, and we will work on health management. Particular emphasis will be placed on ① the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases and ② the early detection and prevention of mental health problems.
Efforts to Promote Employee Health
Measures against lifestyle-related diseases and metabolic syndromes
Health guidance and nutrition guidance by industrial physicians will be provided as measures against lifestyle-related diseases such as dyslipidemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and hyperuricemia, as well as metabolic syndrome.
Measures against mental health
We will conduct mental health training for employees, including managers, and work to prevent mental illness. We have also established an external consultation desk in partnership with a specialized agency of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), which enables employees and their families to receive consultation and counseling at any time via face-to-face, telephone, or email.
Measures against harassment
In order to prevent harassment in general, we set up an external harassment counseling desk (we will proceed with the handling of problems in a manner that maintains the confidentiality of harassment at our request) and conduct various in-house training to prevent harassment in general.
Subsidy system for medical checkup costs
In addition to conducting regular health checkup in accordance with the Industrial Safety and Health Law, for employees aged 35 or older, we pay a medical check-up fee (up to 80,000 yen combined with health care subsidies, up to 18,000 yen for gynecology checkup, and up to 10,000 yen for reexamination) and recommend that employees undergo medical checkups.
We will consider holding regular seminars on diet, exercise, dormant aplexia, cancer, and women’s health as opportunities for employees to improve their health awareness and take health actions.
Measures against Infectious Disease
We collect and analyze a variety of information on the outbreaks and epidemics of infectious diseases, from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the WHO (World Health Organization), and the CDC (Center For Disease Control and Prevention etc.). We also collaborate with industrial physicians to implement in-house measures against infectious diseases.
With regard to COVID-19 crisis, we are taking the necessary measures from the perspectives of prevention of infection and its spread and appropriate business continuity, not only for employees, but also for all people working in the company, based on the three keywords of “Do not be infected,” “Do not infect,” and “Do not let the disease become severe,” while assessing domestic and overseas conditions.
We have established a thorough system to prevent infectious diseases in the workplace, including conducting antibody tests for measles and rubella, MR vaccination, and internal group immunization of seasonal influenza vaccines.
