Regular Health Examinations
The Group provides regular health examinations (with statutory
examination items) at least once each year. In addition, major
Group companies provide their employees aged 35 years
or older with screenings for lifestyle-related diseases (total
cholesterol, uric acid, fundoscopy, tumor markers, breast and
cervical cancer screening, screening for VDT syndrome, and
others) together with the health insurance union. Based on the
results of the examinations, detailed follow-ups are conducted
for the early detection and treatment of health problems by
working in collaboration with an industrial physician.
Health Consultation Office
The Group established the Oji Group Health Consultation Office,
where doctors and counselors are available to give advice,
either by telephone or online, on various health problems of
employees and their families, including mental health problems
caused by worksite human relations and so on.
The Group also established a nationwide system that
enables employees to receive face-to-face counselling
services from specialized counselors by making prior
appointments. The Group provides employees who have
used this service with a wide variety of support based on
the particulars of their issues.
In accordance with the law, The Oji Group ensures that
employee stress check tests are conducted once annually.
Employees with high stress levels are recommended to receive
face-to-face guidance from doctors individually by an external
service provider to which we outsource the clerical work for
implementing the stress checks.
With regards to the results of the stress checks, the Group holds
meetings, including reporting seminars, for responsible personnel
from Group companies and divisions as well as providers of
clerical work related to the implementation of the stress checks,
where we provide feedback on organizational analysis and
encourage them to improve their worksite environments.
Vaccination of Expatriate Employees before Dispatch
The Group recommends that employees who are to be
dispatched to countries with a high risk of infectious diseases
and their accompanying family members receive vaccinations
that are recommended by the Ministry of Health, Labour
and Welfare (hepatitis A and B, tetanus, rabies, Japanese
encephalitis, polio, yellow fever, measles/rubella, and typhoid)
depending on the destination, thereby preventing infection
after their dispatch.
