Health Management Initiatives

The SG Holdings Group considers the management of employees’ health from a managerial perspective, and as such is promoting a range of initiatives to maintain and improve employees’ health.

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.

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 targets that stick to the absolute number of workplace accidents 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."
