Occupational Health and Safety

Promoting Worker Health and Safety Globally

All SCREEN Group companies in Japan conduct initiatives based on the Group’s OHSAS 18001-compliant Occupational Health and Safety Management System. These activities include assessing risks, executing preemptive health and safety reviews, inspecting heavy load operations, and enhancing training for operators and supervisors with limited experience. We are reinforcing our occupational health and safety management activities overseas, as well.

For GV 21, Phase III, we worked toward goals related to globally eliminating accidents leading to lost work.

Initiatives on Mental Health

The SCREEN Group works to ensure that all employees receive health check-ups, and we have achieved a 100% check-up rate for Group employees in Japan. In order to achieve the same target among overseas employees, we have created health check-up plans, and send check-up reminders to employees on a regular basis.
With regard to mental health management, the Group conducts stress management checks, offers e-learning programs for self-care and line care, and provides counseling with industrial health staff as necessary. Individual support and consultations are also available from industrial health staff and through an external EAP (employee assistance program). The Group also has in place a reintegration program designed to help employees on leave due to mental health issues to quickly recover and return to work, and prevent the need for additional leave.
However, we failed to meet the GV21 Phase III goal of reducing the absenteeism rate for sickness. In GV21 Phase IV, we will be working not only to reduce the sick leave rate but also to eliminate passive smoking from workplaces.
