Health and Safety
Guided by our Health and Safety Principles, we carry out daily health and safety activities
as part of our commitment to preserving the health and safety of workers and providing a comfortable work environment.
Health and Safety Principles and Health and Safety Policies
The Obayashi Basic Principles state "value each person with a stake in our business". We therefore make the safety of our construction sites, where so many people work, a top priority. We also practice health and safety day to day under our Health and Safety Principles and Health and Safety Policies.
Health and Safety Principles
- Ensure the safety and health of all workers at construction sites and create comfortable workplace environments
Health and Safety Policies
- 1 Comply with the Industrial Safety and Health Act, other relevant laws, and Obayashi Corporation's internal rules
- 2 Appropriately implement and use Obayashi's Occupational Health and Safety Management System
- 3 Help improve the independent health and safety management efforts of suppliers
Occupational Health and Safety Management
Occupational Health and Safety Management System
We operate the Occupational Health and Safety Management System, which brings all our safety management methods together, to put the Health and Safety Principles into action.
This system clarifies the occupational health and safety policy of the organization. It allows us to manage structures, plan formulation and procedures for the cycle from implementation to achievement, review and maintenance. We aim for continual improvement by setting policies and targets and following the PDCA cycle.
Health and Safety Management System
We have established a Central Health and Safety Committee chaired by the president. It meets at least twice a year to discuss and consider the basic matters concerning occupational accident prevention and health maintenance and promotion.
Furthermore, we have health and safety management systems in place so we can respond rapidly in case an occupational accident, natural disaster, or other emergency actually happens.
