System for Health & Safety Management

Taikisha has established its own Taikisha Occupational Health & Safety Management System with respect for human lives and a law-abiding spirit as its basic principle. Taikisha has established the Safety Headquarters in its Headquarters and the Safety Control Department in business divisions, and they support safety activities of Branch Offices and Offices while supervising and managing industrial safety of the entire group. To enhance its employees’ knowledge and awareness of safety and to prevent the occurrence of similar industrial accidents of construction sites, Taikisha has made information and improvement techniques relating to safety management available and known to all employees on the Internal Safety Website. Engineering employees receive a Morning Safety Information E-mail every day, which is designed to give information about safety activities and help with day-to-day safety work.
In addition, a safety patrol is conducted by employees of each job ranking of cross-functional departments to confirm that day-to-day work at construction sites is carried out safely and surely. At branch offices and offices, information about problems and measures to deal with problems at construction sites are shared through the Health & Safety Committee meeting held monthly. Moreover, Taikisha maintains a safety management system that ensures safety activities in the entire Company through measures, such as safety audits by the Headquarters and Divisions and efforts in the Corporate Health & Safety Management Committee.

Management Indicator of Safety Activity Results

Taikisha measures and monitors results of safety activities by using a frequency rate that indicates the frequency of industrial accidents and a severity rate that indicates the severity of accidents as safety indicators. Taikisha has maintained zero fatal and serious industrial accidents for over 10 years.

Efforts for Improvement of Industrial Health & Safety Management in Overseas Business Offices

There has recently been an increasing difference in the levels of industrial safety & health management among business offices due to differences in safety requirements in each country. In addition, Taikisha has had safety management issues with the increase in employees of diverse nationalities.
In order to solve such issues, Taikisha introduced the Occupational Health & Safety Management System (“OHSMS”) in eight main overseas business offices, and is conducting safety activities in the entire organization to maintain and improve industrial health and safety levels. Specifically, Taikisha invites national staff of overseas business offices to Japan and provides periodic safety education to enhance their safety management capabilities. Taikisha also conducts safety patrols in the Headquarters to check the status of health and safety management activities at construction sites and give guidance.

Overseas Safety Audit

Under the recognition that it is of paramount importance for overseas business offices to carry out high levels of safety activities autonomously, the Headquarters conduct safety audits on items which are difficult to be detected by external audits or internal audits, such as whether OHSMS has lost substance or not and the safety awareness levels of national staff are maintained.

Safety Training by Inviting National Staff

In order to improve the safety activity levels of business offices overseas, Taikisha invites staff members from the safety department and construction department of each country to Japan every year to provide various education and training programs.
