Building a company worth working at
Occupational Health and Safety
Framework for promoting health and safety
A safe and comfortable workplace is the top priority in all business activities. In the Haseko Group, the Safety and Health Central Committee and the Safety and Health Committee of each Group company play a central role in creating safe and comfortable workplaces on an ongoing basis, through concerted efforts made by members of the Committees and an industrial doctor.
In fiscal 2019, we presented "Let's expand comfortable workplaces and promote workstyle reform" as our slogan. We are executing thoroughgoing initiatives to eliminate occupational accidents at each business site and further promoting non-working days in order to rectify long hours of work as part of "Workstyle Reform" at construction sites. We will make Group-wide efforts in this area at the organization level also in collaboration with "MOSt Activities."
Activities to raise safety awareness
In the Haseko Group, the “Basic Policy for Safety and Health Management” is established each year at all Group companies, and efforts are made to raise the awareness of employees and business partners accordingly.
In order to fulfill our occupational accident target of zero accidents, it is necessary for each and every employee to act by being conscious of safety in his/her day-to-day work. With this in mind, we proactively utilize posters and bulletin boards to help raise employees’ awareness.
Furthermore, in order to minimize occupational accidents at each worksite, 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 and engage in activities accordingly.
With the aim of eliminating occupational accidents at worksites, 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. In this workshop, which we have been conducting since 2005, 206 people took part in a total of nine sessions in fiscal 2018. A cumulative total of 155 sessions have been held and 5,329 people have participated in this workshop.
We also conduct “experiential safety education” jointly at worksites during induction training of new recruits. In fiscal 2018, the number of participants from Haseko Corporation and Haseko Reform, Inc. were 43 and 12 employees, respectively.
Haseko Corporation regularly conducts safety patrolling at construction sites (conducted eleven times a year; each month excluding January), whereby striving to ensure safety management.
*Our Basic Policy for Safety and Health Management applies to the Group as well as to business partners entrusted with the Company’s business at worksites.
Status of occupational accidents and action taken in response
Although we set our target of zero fatal and serious accidents/disasters in fiscal 2018, an accident occurred at a work site of Haseko Reform, Inc., in which an employee of a partner company fell down to death. An emergency meeting was held by the head of the business establishment following the accident to identify the cause of the accident and develop preventive measures. As a result, it was found that the cause was the inappropriate use of a safety belt, and every head of business establishment have been instructed to ensure the appropriate use of a safety belt and main rope as well as thorough implementation of preventive measures including mandatory employment of leading handrails, etc. Going forward, we will be committed to these preventive measures so as never to let such an accident happen again.

Introducing "Smartfit for work" at construction sites on a trial basis
In order to manage the physical condition of workers working at new condominium construction sites in summer, we have introduced "Smartfit for work" on a trial basis. "Smartfit for work" is a service developed by KURABO INDUSTRIES LTD. (KURABO), in which smart shirt "Smartfit" obtains biometric information (e.g., heart rate, temperature) of the person wearing it for analysis and assessment by a unique algorithm, together with meteorological information, etc. of the worksite's geographical area, to give real-time notification of information on risks of working in a hot environment and changes in physical conditions of the worker. Going forward, we will endeavor to reduce workers' burden and ensure their safety by proactively utilizing IoT technology at construction sites.
