Occupational Health and Safety / Promotion of Health

The Fujifilm Group believes it essential to ensure that employees can work with energy and remain in good health both physically and mentally at their workplaces, to maintain our position as a leading company by Creating New Value which is stated in our Vision. However, we experienced further decreases in labor productivity (caused by increase in workdays lost) and an increase in medical costs in the Group. In response, in July 2013 we established a group-wide health promotion council composed of the Group companies' HR divisions, industrial doctors and the Fujifilm Group health insurance association. The council has since been working to promote activities focusing on four priority areas: preventing serious lifestyle-related diseases, quitting smoking, mental illness and preventing overwork. In a high evaluation of these activities, FUJIFILM Holdings was recognized under the 2017 Certified Health and Productivity Management Organization Recognition Program.

Fujifilm

Fujifilm is implementing measures against cancer and metabolic syndrome in its drive to prevent lifestyle-related diseases. We opened the Nishiazabu Medical Center in our headquarters building in 2014, to create an environment where employees can have endoscopic examinations to improve the cancer detection rate and foster early treatment. Also, a colorectal cancer examination subsidy that covers 70% of the examination cost has been introduced for some employees to improve the examination rate.

In an effort to discourage smoking, a group-wide “no smoking during working hours” rule was introduced in 2015. At the same time, support for employees is being provided to cover part of the expenses incurred in quitting smoking under the “stop-smoking treatment subsidy program.”

In mental health, the group-wide health promotion committee composed of industrial doctors and the HR division is held every year. Special attention is paid to preventing mental health problems and early detection of symptoms through analysis of data accumulated to date. Our efforts have reduced the sick leave rate. In the activities to reform working styles, we are encouraging a working style that improves efficiency and productivity and cuts down on long working hours.

Assessment of work accidents at global sites started in FY2016 as part of occupational safety and health. Although statistical assessment based on a unified standard presents difficulties because of the differences in definitions between countries, we plan to begin an aggregate calculation based on the standards for each country, analyze trends and study corrective measures.

Fuji Xerox

Fuji Xerox plans to foster a companywide awareness campaign to quit smoking to achieve the target of 12.2% established by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare earlier than FY2021. As a result of this, the proportion of smokers has fallen from 19.1% in FY2014 to 16.8% in FY2016.

In cancer prevention, we have established a companywide system and subsidy program to facilitate medical examinations, resulting in a stomach endoscopy rate of 70% and a gynecologic cancer examination rate exceeding 70%, leading to early cancer detection and treatment. In support of mental health, 89% of employees took our annual stress check. As the number of employees receiving counseling to reduce working hours rose by 36% against the last year, the safety and health committee in each factory is holding discussions on causes and countermeasures to manage the symptoms based on individual data, seeking to reduce the risk of damage to health from overwork.

In occupational safety and health, the safety and health committees at each site are investigating the causes of work accidents, along with a review of how to prevent recurrences. At the same time, we are continuing our activities to raise greater awareness of prevention.

Future Prospects

We are accumulating data on stress checks, health checks on employees working long hours and regular health checks in our health database introduced in FY2016, and we utilize it for PDCA on measures to improve health. We use the data for more extensive analysis throughout the Group on how to implement measures that are more effective for occupational safety and health and promotion of better health.

Based on the aforementioned priority areas for the entire Group, we are making efforts to promote health group-wide, including the establishment of KPI based on our new CSR plan.
