Occupational safety and health

Basic way of thinking on safety and health

The company has enacted Safety and Health Management Regulations, establishes the matters required for safety and health management, and carries out continuous occupational safety and health management independently to reduce the potential danger of industrial accidents, promote the health of all employees, promote comfortable work environments and improve the level of safety and health at all plants.

Formulation of a safety standard systems

The Topre Group has formulated a group-wide safety standard system to promote and implement intrinsic safety based on the principle of respect for people - “prioritize safety in everything.” Based on this safety standard system, we promote safety activities and establish safety rules to protect the safety of employees.
We are aiming for the realization of zero hazards from zero accidents.

【Examples of safety standard systems】

Hiring safety and health training procedures, new employee safety and health training procedures, safety manager training procedures, departmental safety training procedures, risk assessment implementation procedures, etc.

Initiatives for the creation of safe workplaces

Topre employees definitely receive safety training when entering the company, and the company distributes safety guidance to all employees, has established and uses a safety experience room where employees can experience simulations of the dangers of equipment, etc., and conducts risk assessments aimed at the creation of workplaces where employees can work with peace of mind. In addition, we also install easy-to-understand stickers on sidewalks to raise awareness of safety.

Implementation of meetings of Safety and Health Committees

The company has established a Safety and Health Committee at all plants, regardless of the number of employees, and they hold meetings once a month. The committees implement surveys and hold deliberations on matters related to safety and health management, report on the safety and health of employees, and consider and implement specific measures to address the problems raised.

Earthquake resistance at plants

Sagamihara Plant has implemented measures for earthquake resistance to increase safety at the plant, such as measures to prevent objects falling onto small control panels or their displacement, and measures to prevent skylight glass from shattering.
These measures were introduced as examples of earthquake resistance at a “Disaster prevention briefing for suppliers” held by a customer.

Holding of lifesaving training sessions

AEDs (automated external defibrillators) are installed in workplaces and Fire Department personnel visit once a year to hold training sessions for employees to learn about cardiopulmonary resuscitation and how to use AEDs aimed at providing appropriate first aid and minimizing employee health damage when responding to an accident or emergency in the workplace.
