In order to achieve a safe and comfortable workplace and zero workplace accidents, we conduct activities to raise awareness of safety in particular through education and training. We ensure that all employees at each production facility have the mindset for an accident-free workplace, and we disclose information on occupational health and safety in a timely manner. Next year and beyond, we will continue to promote health and safety activities and obtain information on revised laws and regulations at all times. The Kofu plant achieved 3.1 million consecutive accident-free hours* in August and is in the process of applying to the Kofu Labor Standards Inspection Office for class 1 certification. In April, THK RHYTHM’s Hamamatsu plant achieved 13.2 million accident-free hours, and in July, the plant received a class 4 accident-free record certificate from the Hamamatsu Labor Standards Inspection Office.
Create a pleasant work environment with zero work-related accidents or illnesses.
Each production facility has established concrete goals and activities to create a pleasant work environment with zero work-related accidents or illnesses. We also pour our efforts into conducting monthly health committee meetings and health and safety patrols, as well as education campaigns that include health and safety seminars. We are strengthening our collaboration with occupational physicians with regard to metal health, such as by referring employees to specialists as necessary.
