Building a company worth working at
A safe and healthy working environment

We strive to create a safe and healthy working environment and promote health among employees working in the Haseko Group and employees of partner companies.

Toward the realization of a safe and healthy working environment

Policy for safety and health

At the Haseko Group, we establish a Group-wide “Basic Policy for Safety and Health Management” that stipulates a safety and health policy for Group employees each year, execute thoroughgoing initiatives to eliminate occupational accidents and work to create safe and comfortable workplaces on an ongoing basis.

Furthermore, construction sites of Haseko Corporation establish a safety and health policy and specific implementation measures including partner companies under the Safety and Health Management Plan each year. In order to minimize occupational accidents, not to mention reducing fatal and serious accidents/disasters to zero, we treat the elimination of factors that cause human errors as a priority issue in our activities.

*The Haseko Corporation Safety and Health Management Plan applies to Haseko Corporation’s construction sites and partner companies that undertake construction work.

Framework for promoting health and safety

Although the Haseko Group has not been accredited with Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (OHSAS) 18001, it has voluntarily set up the Safety and Health Central Committee as a supervisory system in which directors oversee safety matters, chaired by the President and Representative Director of Haseko Corporation to administer the respective Safety and Health Committees. The Safety and Health Committee of each Group company also works on creating safe and comfortable workplaces on an ongoing basis, through concerted efforts made by members of the Committee and industrial doctors.

In fiscal 2020, with “Let's expand comfortable workplaces and promote workstyle reform” as our slogan, we executed thoroughgoing initiatives to eliminate occupational accidents at each business site, and committee members for safety and health promotion of each company continuously played a central role in creating a safe and comfortable workplace environment.

For elimination of occupational accidents, we conducted activities by setting the frequency rate of occupational accidents at 0.60% or less and the severity rate of occupational accidents at 0.01% or less as target figures for accidents (*) at construction sites, and we achieved these targets. For the creation of a safe and comfortable workplace environment, we further promoted non-working days together with workers in order to rectify long hours of work as part of Workstyle Reform at construction sites. We also made Group-wide efforts in this area at the organization level in collaboration with MOSt Activities.

Activities to raise safety awareness

To eliminate occupational accidents, it is essential that each and every employee act in his/her day-to-day work with safety in mind.

In addition to proactive utilization of posters and bulletin boards to help raise employees’ awareness, we conduct risk assessment through regular safety patrolling at the Group’s construction sites where everything takes place to ensure safety management.

Haseko Corporation and Haseko Reform, Inc. provide foreman-level workers of partner companies with “experiential safety education” that includes experiencing dangers at high places, dangers of electricity, and dangers of crane operation, etc. in the program on an ongoing basis. Although we could not have this workshop in 2020 due to COVID-19, a cumulative total of 5,555 people participated since we had started this workshop in 2005. We also conduct “experiential safety education” at worksites during induction training of new recruits to secure safety awareness.

Status of occupational accidents and action taken in response

In fiscal 2020, we set a goal of zero fatal and serious accidents/disasters and there were no fatal and serious accidents. We have established a system in which, in the event of an accident, we investigate the cause of the accident, formulate preventive measures, and work to prevent recurrence.

Preventive measures against COVID-19 at construction sites

At construction sites of Haseko Corporation, we established the 22 Rules on COVID-19 Prevention, which apply to anyone who works at construction sites including employees of business partners, to ensure the prevention of COVID-19. In addition, as part of measures for business continuity, we divide employees of the same worksite into some teams to mitigate the risk that all persons on-site will get infected, encourage remote meetings, and reduce meeting times to strive for the prevention of COVID-19.

Organizational framework for promoting health management

In accordance with Haseko Group’s Declaration of Health, we established the Haseko Group Health Management Promotion Committee in scal 2018. The Committee is chaired by the President of Haseko Corporation, its members are the respective o cers in charge of departments of Haseko Corporation, the respective presidents of Group companies, industrial doctors, labor unions, and its secretariat consists of the Personnel Dept., the Safety Management Dept., the Welfare Dept. of Haseko Well Center, and the health insurance society. The Committee makes decisions on company-wide policies, targets, plans and progress related to the maintenance and promotion of employees’ health and shares related information.

Maintaining and enhancing health

Physical health

HASEKO CLINIC," an in-house medical o ce that serves as the health management and disease prevention center for Group employees, plays a pivotal role in our e orts for the early detection of diseases through medical checkups and outpatient treatment. The CLINIC has precision equipment comparable with hospitals and is capable of performing accurate and speedy tests.
The CLINIC not only conducts periodic medical checkups on all employees but also holds health seminars (e.g., improvement of diabetes, smoking cessation) andgives advice for the prevention of lifestyle-related diseases, in an e ort to enhance their health. Under the scheme for raising employees’ awareness of good health, certain employees are o ered PET-CT scanning, while female employees are entitled to comprehensive women-only medical examinations.

Mental health

We have a structure in place to provide care to employees to maintain their mental health ranging from counseling to reinstatement assistance, including stress checks, as well as a structure to give support to employees in the event of the onset of mental illness.
Speci c services available are: "self-care," which involves counselling and telephone consultation by a professional body outside the Group; "line care," which is a periodic training session held for managers to educate them and raise their awareness for the prevention of mental illnesses among their subordinates; and "reinstatement assistance program," in which a support team including an industrial doctor and the personnel division provides employees with full support at the Company level to return to work.

Refreshing

The Haseko Group believes that it is important for employees to have opportunities to expand their horizons in terms of hobbies and mates and opportunities to refresh themselves, in order to maintain their physical and mental health. For this reason, we not only directly operate a recuperation facility but also introduce recuperation facilities and resort condominiums to employees and encourage employees to utilize them.
Furthermore, "Haseko Club" and "Everyone's Event," which are open to employees of the Haseko Group, provide the employees with opportunities to refresh themselves through physical exercise and cultural activities.

2021 Certified Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organizations Recognition Program

Haseko Corporation and its a liates were recognized under the "2021 Certified Health & Productivity Management Outstanding Organizations Recognition Program" in the large enterprise category hosted by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) and Nippon Kenko Kaigi as one of the "organizations engaging in strategic health and productivity management program efforts for maintaining their employees’ health from a management perspective."

Initiatives on labor issues

Support of living wage

Haseko Corporation conducts labor management in compliance with labor laws and regulations in each country and region. As for wages, we comply with minimum wage standards stipulated in each country and region, and pay higher wages than the standards as our basic policy. The average annual salary of the Corporation was 9.24 million yen in fiscal 2020.

Labor-management relationship

The Haseko Group has earned a labor-management relationship based on mutual trust between each Group company and the labor union of the Haseko Group. Aiming to realize a work-life balance for every union member and the development of the Group, the labor union collects voices from union members through questionnaires on their living and working conditions as well as meetings at worksites. Based on these voices, discussions and suggestions are made on equal footing through regular meetings between the employer and employees about developing a reassuring labor environment and measures for improving productivity. Each company takes these matters seriously to consider and implement various measures for the further development of the Group.
