Safety Initiatives (Case examples and others)

Group CEO Safety Award

The Group CEO Safety Award is granted to all domestic and overseas workplaces of the Oji Group that have met specific criteria determined based on the business scale (number of employees), which have been recommended by each COMPANY, and which have been approved by the Group CEO. These criteria include the total work time without any occupational accidents resulting in temporary incapacity for work or more serious ones, as well as the number of consecutive years without any occupational accidents.

The Award is granted to workplaces with outstanding records of no accidents (zero occupational accidents resulting in temporary incapacity for work or more serious ones), together with employees of the workplaces and those of affiliates of the Group companies, with the aim of improving the safety and health levels of the Oji Group and eliminating occupational accidents.

In addition, the Safety Administration Department conducts interviews and on-site inspections at workplaces that have been granted the Group CEO Safety Award. The department provides Group companies with information about such workplaces as good case examples of safety activities as a measure for raising the overall Group’s safety awareness and improving its safety climate.

We have also introduced the COMPANY President Safety Award and the President Safety Award at each Group company, and the Workplace Head Award as safety award programs, under which companies, workplaces, and divisions with excellent safety performance are commended at each COMPANY and Group company.

Safety Questionnaire

We regularly conduct a safety questionnaire survey of employees working for Group companies in Japan (including companies belonging to the Unit within the Lead Companies’ control) to find out how they feel about their safety activities and safety climate, their safety awareness, and other facts. This survey is aimed at confirming the effects of safety and health activities promoted based on the safety and health promotion plan.

We aggregate and analyze the results of the questionnaire survey, identify safety-related issues and problems that should be addressed, and inform each company of the identified issues and problems as feedback. We also aim to have each company and workplace make use of the information by discussing the issues and problems for internal communication and reflecting them in their safety and health activities.

Section Chief Meetings

The Safety Administration Department hosts meetings of section-chief level employees working on operational frontlines, which are held at workplaces all over Japan. At these meetings, topics are presented from various points of view, and the section chiefs discuss topics relating to problems and difficulties faced in the current safety activities. Through these discussions, the participants have an accurate understanding of the obligation of safety, raise safety awareness, and think about what to do and what measures to take to ensure that their subordinates will never be injured. A safety inspection of the workplace as the venue is also conducted when the meetings are held.

In FY2017, the meetings were held at 23 workplaces in Japan (with 267 participants).

In FY2018, the meetings will be held for each type of business, including pulp, paper manufacturing, converting, facility, transportation, and forest products (planned to take place at 33 venues for 271 participants). The meetings also help share information and build networks of participants.
