Non-smoking Promotion

In FY2016, we started an internal survey for the first time, and we were able to ascertain that our smoking rate is more than double the national average. For this reason, we have established a policy to strengthen our non-smoking initiatives at the time of the revision of the Health Promotion Act in 2020. In 2021, we implemented a non-smoking declaration and a four-year plan to promote smoking cessation in order to prevent health damage caused by smoking and passive smoking. We also announced the issuance of workplace smoke-free policy declaration on May 1, 2024.
In terms of activities, in addition to training on smoking cessation, we discussed and decided the environment and rules related to smoking with smokers at in-house smoking discussion meetings and Health Committee in which smokers participate.
As a result of these efforts, the smoking rate has decreased by 10.3% (2023: 29.3%) compared to the FY2016 internal survey result. Going forward, we will continue to create a productive and healthy work environment with the understanding of employees.

Notice of Workplace Smoke-free Policy Declaration dated on May 1, 2024

Mental health measures

Support for leave and return to work and in-house consultation system by mental specialist staff

We have two professional staff members who are certified as clinical psychologists or certified psychologists stationed at all times. We have built a system that allows employees to receive professional support from the operation of an in-house consultation desk and from the time they take leave to the time they return to work.

Establishment of an external consultation desk

Encouraging employees to take stress checks

We are working to increase the number of people taking stress checks, which are important as primary prevention in mental health every year.

Association between health behavior and performance

Correlation between health behavior indicators and engagement or performance loss


Occupational Health and Safety

Dialogue with Employees

We not only discuss health promotion issues and workplace environment improvement but collect various opinions by holding the health committee meeting. Furthermore, the committee at a monthly meeting discusses themes proposed by employees such as improving the rate of employees receiving a second medical checkup, and increasing the rate of employees taking paid leave, and conducts questionnaires as necessary to promote dialogue with employees.

Risk Assessment on Occupational Health and Safety

At the beginning of each workday at construction sites, we use a hazard prediction sheet to evaluate risks. We also accumulate close call incidents and provide opportunities for employees to share the details of such incidents.

Improving Paid Leave Acquisition

After conducting a survey of regular work at offices in 2014, we introduced a planned annual leave and refresh leave system in 2015, and introduced a program that makes it easier for employees to take paid leave. Such measures resulted in over 80% acquisition rate since 2019.
