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

Framework for promoting health and safety

The Haseko Group has in place a supervisory system in which directors oversee safety matters, with the President and Representative Director of Haseko Corporation appointed as the Chair of the Safety and Health Central Committee. The Safety and Health Committee of each Group company plays a central role in creating safe and comfortable workplaces on an ongoing basis, through concerted efforts made by members of the Committee and industrial doctors.

In fiscal 2019, 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 further promoted non-working days 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

In the Haseko Group, a Group-wide “Basic Policy for Safety and Health Management” is established each year 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 ten sessions in fiscal 2019. A cumulative total of 162 sessions have been held and 5,555 people have participated in this workshop.

We also conduct “experiential safety education” jointly at worksites during induction training of new recruits. In fiscal 2019, the number of participants from Haseko Corporation and Haseko Reform, Inc. were 50 and 9 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.

Thirty-eight construction sites obtained certifications under the Second Comfortable Workplace Accreditation Program of JFCC

At Haseko Corporation, 38 construction sites have been certified under the Second Comfortable Workplace Accreditation Program sponsored by the Japan Federation of Construction Contractors (JFCC) as workplaces that are actively working to improve the overall workplace environment for securing and nurturing the next generation of workers.

Acquisition of certifications under this program is promoted by the “Value Enhancement Activities” Workstyle Reform Committee and the achievement of these certifications is a result of the united efforts of each worksite, including partner companies, to improve the working environment.
Going forward, we aim to increase the number of “comfortable workplaces” certified through ongoing initiatives and further improvements.

Status of occupational accidents and action taken in response

In fiscal 2019, we set a goal of zero fatal and serious accidents/disasters and there were no fatal 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.

Promoting health

Basic approach to employees’ health

Since 2008, the Haseko Group has been providing support to its officers and employees for better physical and mental health by promoting "Healthy HASEKO Full-of-life Plan" under the slogan "No success without healthy officers and employees."

To describe its passion for and approach to health at the Group level, we released "Haseko Group’s Declaration of Health" in September 2017 and thereby presented our corporate policy for health to people inside and outside the Group.

Basic approach to employees’ health

We, at the Haseko Group, hereby make our declaration of health to pursue a group in which all employees—our most important business resource—can maintain their health, both physically and mentally, and each and every one of them can work more vigorously, in order to fulfill our corporate philosophy "To contribute to society by creating an optimal environment for cities and people."

  1. Support for health
    The Company will proactively work on maintaining and improving its employees’ health and provide support to them for better health.
  2. Responsibility for health
    Employees shall take responsibility for their own health and take action and make efforts accordingly on an ongoing basis.
  3. For a healthy future
    Our future must be unlocked by no one but ourselves. In order to open the way to Haseko Group’s future, let’s work together and make efforts as a team by giving top priority to our health.

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 fiscal 2018. The Committee is chaired by the President of Haseko Corporation, its members are the respective officers 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 office that serves as the health management and disease prevention center for Group employees, plays a pivotal role in our efforts 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 effort to enhance their health. Under the scheme for raising employees’ awareness of good health, certain employees are offered 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.

Specific 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 affiliates 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."
