Corporate Health & Safety Policy

Basic Principles of Industrial Health and Safety

Based on an understanding of the importance of human life as its basic principle, Taikisha thoroughly implements safety-first planning and construction and fulfills its social responsibilities as a company in the construction industry out of respect for the law. Taikisha aims to protect the health and lives of employees and workers and makes efforts to build a more comfortable working environment.

Action Guidance

  1. 1.Critical or public disaster prevention
  2. 2.Development of a comfortable working environment
  3. 3.Improvement of health & safety management guidelines
  4. 4.Improvement of health & safety management abilities of overseas group companies

Health & Safety Management System and Activities

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 each of its business divisions, and they support safety activities of Branch Offices and Offices while supervising and managing industrial safety of the entire group.
One example of the management initiatives under the Health & Safety Management System is disaster risk management: Prior to starting project operations, the Safety Control Department holds a “Safety Review Meeting” with those who are responsible for onsite operations, such as section managers and onsite managers, focusing on health and safety matters per project at the stage of planning construction work, share disaster risks expected at the construction stage and consider and propose risk-mitigation measures. In addition, a Morning Safety Information E-mail is delivered to each employee every day to enhance their safety knowledge and awareness to enlighten and help them perform day-to-day safety work.

Information and improvement technologies relating to safety management as well as past cases of industrial accidents are disclosed on the Internal Safety Website for all employees to share and put into practice.
Worksites, offices and subcontractors join forces to prevent industrial accidents by engaging in their own safety risk-mitigation activities to reduce disaster risks at their construction sites.
As a result of endeavors to achieve its highest priority goal of zero fatal and serious industrial accidents, Taikisha has maintained zero fatal and serious industrial accidents for more than 10 years.

Monitoring of Safety Activity Results

Taikisha measures and monitors the effects 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. The transition of these indicators is as follows.
Scope: Taikisha’s construction sites (employees on a non-consolidated basis and subcontractors)

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 local staff of overseas business offices to Japan and provides periodic safety education to enhance their safety management capabilities. Taikisha also conducts safety audits led by its Headquarters to confirm the status of health and safety management activities at overseas business offices and provides guidance to maintain and improve their safety management levels.

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 Safety Headquarters conduct safety audits on items which are difficult to be detected by internal audits, such as whether OHSMS as lost substance or not and the safety awareness levels of local staff are maintained, to enhance their safety management levels.

Safety Training by Inviting Overseas Local 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.

【 Safety education items for staff members of overseas business offices 】
(1) Safety activity guidance
(2) Presentation of safety activities of each country
(3) Group discussion
(4) Safety patrol training
(5) Crisis experience training
(6) Education on various safety management capabilities
(7) Opinion exchange meeting, etc.
