Building a Structure to Encourage “the Fostering of a Culture of Safety” and “the Promotion of Health Management”
Establishment of the Safety and Health Promotion Committee
The Safety and Health Promotion Committee, comprising management including the Presidents of Chubu Electric Power, Chubu Electric Power Grid, and Chubu Electric Power Miraiz, the labor unions, outside experts, and other members, is held periodically to promote initiatives on safety and health.
Formulation of the Basic Safety and Health Policy and the Safety and Health Principles of Action
The Basic Policy articulates Chubu Electric Power’s policy to create a better environment so that employees can devote themselves to their work in a safe and healthy way and they can work actively and the Principles of Action represent a specific code of conduct for executives and employees to foster a corporate culture and workplace atmosphere that values people in order to materialize the Basic Policy.
Chubu Electric Power Group Basic Safety and Health Policy
Our basic safety and health policy, which is based on the Chubu Electric Power Group CSR Declaration, is stated below.
We will continue to endeavor to create a better environment so that employees can devote themselves to their work in a safe and healthy way and achieve self-fulfillment through their work.
Safety and Health Principles of Action
All executives and employees with the unwavering conviction, “all injuries can be prevented” and “we will remain healthy throughout our lives,” will act in the following manner at all times:
- Praise actions for safety and health and hold dialogues.
- Utilize the lessons learned from the successes and failures of our colleagues in our own actions.
- Identify, promptly mitigate, and manage all possible risks.
- Improve measures both for people (awareness, education and training, and rules) and for objects (facilities and equipment).
- Collaborate with business partners for safety and health.
- Act safely even after working hours and strive to maintain and enhance health
Chubu Electric Power will continue to implement measures and make investments for safety and health.
Initiatives to Prevent All Injuries
Holding Seminars for Senior Management
Executives and the heads of departments, as leaders for fostering a culture of safety, are taking part in safety seminars by outside specialists. At the seminar, the participants, as the leaders of the organization, take part in months-long, ongoing learning of the approach to safety and how to concretely express them in action, and proactively put them into practice.
Holding Safety Contests
Chubu Electric Power holds company-wide safety contests with the participation of the Company’s management, employees, and managers of our subcontractors. Through the contests, Chubu Electric Power shares with the subcontractors, who are our business partners, the strong commitment of “safety takes priority over all else” and makes efforts to proactively practice safety activities.
Create a Better Environment so that Employees Can Devote Themselves to Their Work in a Healthy Way
Promotion of Health Management
The company has established a system capable of promoting employees’ health even after the split off, and Chubu Electric Power, Chubu Electric Power Grid, and Chubu Electric Power Miraiz are joining together to promote initiatives for health management. Since FY2019, “mandatory comprehensive medical checkups” have been rolled out, which has led to the early prevention and early detection of serious illnesses and based on the checkup results, detailed health guidance is being given to all employees by the industrial health staff. We also periodically hold “Health Promotion Events” such as fitness level tests and walking during the lunch break, to raise awareness of health. As mental health measures, we carry out timely seminars and training for each level of employee, while effectively utilizing the results of stress checks to improve the workplace environment. We have also been adopting new workstyles as the norm. These workstyles involve the utilization of remote work and flexible working hours that do not assume the previous style of attendance in person. In conjunction, we have been periodically monitoring the behavioral changes of the employees as a result of such new workstyles and their effects on the minds and bodies of the employees, thereby building a new type of industrial health. Through these initiatives for health management, we will continue to strive to create a better environment where employees can devote themselves both mentally and physically to their work in a healthy way.
