Safety

Furukawa Automotive Systems is committed to creating safe workplace environments where people can work with ease, ensuring vitality throughout our entire organization and allowing each individual the chance to use their skills.

Initiatives for Occupational Health and Safety

At Furukawa Automotive Systems we are engaged in ensuring workplace safety and managing the health of our employees based upon the basic policy below.

Basic Policy
  1. 1. Deploying measures thoroughly focused on respect for people and putting safety first.
  2. 2. Realizing comfortable and safe workplaces for working people.
  3. 3. Maintaining and bettering mental and physical health in pursuit of eliminating illness.
  4. 4. Human resources development aimed at ensuring safe action in all circumstances.

Safety Activities

As part of our occupational health and safety management system, we are engaged in activities seeking to minimize the risk of industrial accidents in the workplace through risk assessment, KYT (danger prediction training) activities and filing of cases of near misses.

Holding Health and Safety Committee Meetings

Health and safety committees or sub-committees are set up in each office of the company and perform such activities as safety patrols with the aim of creating workplaces with zero accidents and zero illnesses.

Disaster Prevention Education and Drills

AED and rescue lectures for in-company fire-fighting teams as well as drills using hoses are held, along with regular evacuation and fire drills for all employees.

Distribution of Employee Emergency Contact Cards

All employees have been given emergency contact cards noting what they should do in case of fire or earthquake and which they must carry at all times, allowing them to minimize the harm caused in a disaster.

Health Examinations

In order to check the state of health of our employees, we hold regular health checkups, lifestyle disease checkups, checkups for those being sent overseas along with irregular checkups.

Health Consultations

The occupational health physician and nurse give health guidance after the checkups as well as consultations for long-term working health and for mental health.

Health Education

We have set up classes to support employees quitting smoking and to improve their diet in order to promote knowledge regarding health and to improve fitness. We also publish Health Promotion News each month to raise awareness amongst employees regarding health management.

Opening of External Health Consultation Office

Through contracting with external medical institutions we allow our employees and their families to utilize telephone consultations on injuries or illnesses as well as a "second opinion service" offering introductions to specialists. We also have mental health support services offering phone or in-person counseling for such issues.

Promoting the Greeting, "Go Anzen Ni!"

「ご安全に!」あいさつの浸透活動

Furukawa Automotive Systems is doing its part to promote the greeting, “Go Anzen Ni! (Stay Safe!)!” as a way for people to remind each other of the importance of safety. The phrase is being translated into the languages of each country, so that it can take its place as a common greeting.

Safety Dojo

安全道場

Training people to behave safely requires a safety “dojo”. Safety dojo fosters awareness of safety through study and experience, combining occupational accident statistics and other information with using machines that simulate accidents such as electrical shock and becoming caught in machinery.

Global Safety and Hygiene Conferences

グローバル安全衛生発表会

Furukawa Automotive Systems participates in global conferences on safety. Breaking down the barriers between companies, participating companies share case studies of success stories with a view to rolling them out across the group. Audience members bring presentation content back to their own workplaces, creating an environment where successful approaches can be promoted on the international level.
