Labor Safety Policy

We have established Groupwide "Health and Safety Regulations" to promote initiatives related to prevention of workplace accidents and ensuring safety. Furthermore, we provide education on ensuring labor safety in the workplace and on health and safety for employees and temporary employees.

Labor Safety Systems

Systems for health and safety in the workplace are established according to the size of each business site. For example, Health and Safety Committees are set up in business sites that constantly have 50 or more employees, and the safety and working hours of employees are discussed in committee meetings that are held monthly to consider and implement specific measures in each business site.

Health and Safety Committee

Labor Safety Initiatives

The SG Holdings Group believes that accurately ascertaining the actual state of workplace accidents is the most important means of improving labor health and safety. For this reason, we do not set such absolute number targets as could provide motivation for cover-ups.

Instead, the departments responsible for safety in each Group company play a central role in steps to address workplace accidents with the aim of "eliminating fatal and serious accidents."

Number of Workplace Accidents (Domestic Group Total)

FY 2017 FY 2018 FY 2019 FY 2020
Not resulting in absence 571 468 599 583
Resulting in absence 380 397 567 608
