In order to ensure that each and every one of our employees, Kansai Paint's treasured assets, can work safely and in good health, Furukawa Hidenori, Representative Director and Senior Managing Executive Officer, is in overall charge of various occupational health and safety activities, including environmental safety and health inspections conducted by a central HSE manager (General Manager of the Production Division) and a team of experts. In the case of COVID-19, we have implemented countermeasures against infectious diseases and continued various safety activities while avoiding the 3Cs (Closed spaces, Crowded places, and Close-contact settings). As in the previous year, one accident occurred that required an employee to take time off work. We will continue working to eradicate accidents from the group by making ongoing improvements to our safety activities, and fostering the kind of workplace culture in which all employees are aware of the dangers and are able to warn their colleagues about them.
The Environmental and Health Subcommittee was established within the Environmental Safety and Health Committee as a dedicated organization that engages in health management for employees of Kansai Paint Group. It works to improve mental health care for employees, mainly through Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services, in accordance with the Mental Health Promotion Plan. We have also instituted a system for following up on employees diagnosed with medical conditions after periodic health examinations and are striving to maintain and promote the health of employees.
We conduct the following mental health training:
|Newly appointed supervisors||Line care and self-care|
|Employees newly transferred overseas||Self-care|
|Serving supervisors||Line care and harassment|
