Regular Health Examinations
We provide regular health examinations (with mandatory examination items) at least once a year. In addition, major Group companies provide their employees aged 35 or older with screening for lifestyle-related diseases (total cholesterol, uric acid, fundoscopy, tumor markers, breast and cervical cancer screening, screening for VDT syndromes, and others) jointly with the health insurance union.
Based on the results of the examinations, we implement elaborate follow-up actions for the early detection and treatment of health problems by working together with our industrial physician.
Health Consultation Office
We have established the Oji Group Health Consultation Office, where doctors and counselors are available to give advice on various health problems of employees and their families, including mental health problems caused by workplace human relations, either by telephone or via the internet.
We have also established a nationwide system that enables employees to receive face-to-face counselling services from specialized counselors by making advance reservations. We provide employees who have used this service with a wide variety of support based on the details of their problems.
In accordance with the law, we ensure that a stress check test of employees is conducted once a year. Employees with high stress levels are then recommended to receive face-to-face guidance from doctors individually, by an external operator to whom we outsource the clerical work for implementing the stress checks.
Based on the results of the stress check, we hold meetings, including reporting seminars, for responsible personnel from Group companies and divisions as well as operators of clerical work related to the implementation of the stress checks, where we provide feedback on organizational analysis and encourage them to improve their workplace environments.
Vaccination of Expatriate Employees before Dispatch
We recommend 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 (against hepatitis A and B, tetanus, rabies, Japanese encephalitis, polio, yellow fever, measles/rubella, and typhoid) in accordance with the destination, thereby preventing infection after their dispatch.
