Occupational Safety and Health and Health Management

Efforts to Improve Occupational Safety and Health

Based on the Fujitsu Corporate Values, we work to ensure the safety of employees by providing work environments where people can work in safety and comfort. Management and the Labor Union have stipulated safety and health regulations and are promoting the formulation of regulations for health exams, which include provisions that exceed what is required by law, as well as support of employees stationed abroad, etc.

In Japan, management and the Labor Union have jointly established a Central Safety and Health Committee, which meets annually, and a direction has been established for all employees of Fujitsu Ltd to follow regarding safety and health. The safety and health management organizations at individual business sites hold monthly meetings of their Safety and Health committees. These committees establish directions suited to the unique characteristics of the business site and work to create safe, healthy workplaces. Each business site's safety and health management organization also performs workplace inspection tours and takes other steps to check for and rectify dangerous locations and factors that may impair health, while conducting risk assessments.

In FY 2013, all Fujitsu Group business sites undertook measures to help prevent related accidents and accidents due to falls. We will continue to promote safety and health education and training that match the characteristics of each workplace to create a workplace environment in which all our employees can work confidently in safety and comfort.

Health Management and Enhancement Initiatives

The Fujitsu Group has established Health Promotion Centers and Health Care Centers at each business site and is undertaking activities that seek to maintain or enhance the health of employees and their families, and elevate health literacy (knowledge of health-related matters). Eligibility for health support services includes not only employees and their families but also retirees.

Implementing Health Checkups

The Fujitsu Group conducts annual health checkups, with results made available to employees via a system they can access from their own desk as an added measure to encourage self-management of personal health. In addition, activities aimed at early detection of diseases are undertaken in collaboration with the Fujitsu Health Insurance Organization, and a subsidy system has been created to help defray costs related to gynecological and obstetric examinations, and simple brain and lung checkups.

Efforts to Enhance Health and Fostering a Self-Care Mindset

The Fujitsu Group has developed a Health Enhancement Campaign targeting all Group employees. In addition to health consultations for individual employees to help prevent lifestyle-related and mental illnesses, targeted education and health talks are held to enhance mental and physical health. As part of this effort, and to foster a self-care mindset, we hold walk rallies and other health promotion activities, healthy lunch seminars and other dietary education activities, activities aimed at helping employees stop smoking, women's health education activities, and other activities as well.

Mental Health Services

Fujitsu appointed an in-house mental health counselor at an early stage to provide mental health counseling services to employees. In FY 2013, 10 counselors traveled to individual business sites to attend to the mental health care needs of employees. Self care has been enhanced through measures such as stress tests for all employees. Based on the stress test results, we also conduct organizational stress tests of each division, in an effort to support activities to improve work environments.

Since FY 2012, the Fujitsu Group has been using a stress test tool developed in-house with questions related to lifestyle and work engagement (realizing increases in vitality through work). The purpose of this tool is to provide data for analyzing issues for future health measures. Advice on organizational stress tests is received from professors at the University of Tokyo, and we work with not only our industrial health staff but also our human resources organization to enhance work engagement and invigorate workplaces.

Fujitsu Clinic

The Fujitsu Clinic was established as a medical clinic in 1944 on the premises of Fujitsu's Kawasaki Plant, for the purpose of providing medical treatment and health management services to employees and their families. Since its establishment, the Clinic has also answered the demand for community healthcare, providing medical treatment to local residents. The center conducts various health checkups for employees (about 30,000 people a year) along with the Fujitsu Health Management Center on the premises.
