Fujitsu Group’s Health and Safety Policy
Ensuring the health and safety of Fujitsu's employees is one of the most important management topics, and it is given the highest priority in all of Fujitsu's business activities.
Promotion Framework and Regular Reviews
The Fujitsu Group has established a Central Health and Safety Committee to coordinate the activities of the health and safety committees at individual business sites. The Central Health and Safety Committee is comprised of the executives in charge of the Human Resources Unit and Health Promotion Unit, and representatives and others from the Labor Union. It meets once per year to share information and report to management and those in charge at each location about the confirmed status of disasters that have occurred at business sites, and about preventative measures, while also formulating Group-wide health and safety related policies.
The health and safety management organizations at individual business sites hold monthly Health and Safety Committee meetings. These committees establish policies suited to the unique characteristics of each site and work to create healthier, safer workplaces in accordance with policies related to the Occupational Health and Safety Management System. These health and safety management organizations also survey the worksites to check and improve anything that is potentially dangerous or could lead to occupational accidents, and they conduct risk assessments. Some business sites have obtained OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001 international health and safety standard certification.
Efforts to Improve Occupational Health and Safety
The Fujitsu Group works toward health and safety with the goal of having zero occupational accidents. Our efforts to boost awareness for the prevention of occupational accidents include health and safety training at each division, and encouraging exercise habits that help prevent falls. Starting in FY 2014 we have also been conducting voluntary inspections and getting third-party verifications from specialists to reduce the risk of accidents at manufacturing sites.
Occupational Health and Safety Training
Fujitsu and our group companies provide health and safety training, as well as health education that raises health awareness. Training is also conducted on-site for the particular work environments present at each individual business site.
Overseas Health and Safety Efforts
Our Occupational Health and Safety Group in the EMEIA region employs a comprehensive region-driven approach to promote thorough awareness of occupational health and safety compliance and preventive measures.
Every year employee occuparional health and safety awareness activities are widely conducted in the region, advocating the themes of World Day for Safety and Health at Work organized by the International Labor Organization (ILO). Efforts also began in FY 2018 to collect and utilize data on occupational accident occurrences with the aim of preventing such accidents. This data is being used to construct a cross-organization incident management system for the EMEIA region, which is scheduled to go live in FY 2019.
The EMEIA region sets specific medium- to long-term objectives that include specific measures such as these, and works working diligently to foster a culture that is not permissive of occupational accidents, while also strengthening governance, establishing management systems, and developing human resources and skills.
Occupational Accident Occurrences (Fujitsu and group companies in Japan)
