Occupational Health and Safety Management System

To consistently maintain and develop activities for occupational health and safety, we introduced an occupational health and safety management system at EIZO Corporation and EIZO MS Corporation, both in Japan, which account for approximately 80% of total EIZO production. We promote health and safety activities that cover all onsite staff, and we have obtained ISO45001 certification.

At those bases, we seek to educate employees and increase safety awareness through periodic workplace patrols and hazard prediction training. We also strive to mitigate risks by applying a risk assessment method to investigate potential hazards and toxicity as well as implement countermeasures, assess the risks involved in handling chemical substances, check targeted substances using safety data sheets, and enforce the use of appropriate protective gear for onsite work. In addition, we seek to reduce the number of traffic accidents both on the job and while commuting. In FY2023, we enhanced health and safety training with the goal of achieving zero accidents during non-routine work, against the several accidents that had happened in the previous fiscal year. We also identified employees with driving habits that posed a high risk for traffic accidents and provided training to improve their driving. In terms of disaster prevention, we completed a plan to add emergency doors in accordance with the RBA Code of Conduct.

We seek to prevent industrial accidents at overseas Group companies as well, through initiatives such as organizing employee training and distributing handbooks on industrial accidents.
