Number and Frequency of Occupational Accidents with Temporary Incapacity for Work
The Oji Group aims to eliminate occupational injuries by taking initiatives for achieving zero serious injuries and deaths under the basic philosophy of “safety as our absolute top priority.”
In 2017, there were 58 occupational accidents resulting in temporary incapacity for work involving employees in the overall Oji Group (including ones from affiliates). Under the Group’s safety and health promotion plan for 2017, Group-wide efforts were made to achieve the priority target of achieving zero serious injuries and deaths. However, we were unable to achieve the target.
The frequency of occupational accidents at overseas Group companies has been declining, while that at domestic Group companies has not.
To reduce occupational accidents at domestic Group companies, the Safety Administration Department checks employees’ safety awareness and the safety climates of workplaces by conducting a safety questionnaire. The Department reflects the results of the questionnaire in its safety and health activities. It also holds section chief meetings and foreperson training, which are aimed at implementing safety awareness reform of managers and supervisors on the operational frontline and putting their safety considerations into practice.
