These include programs such as paid leave for childbirth, childcare, nursing care and shortened work hours.
 

Improving the Work-Life Balance

We believe that feeling mentally and physically refreshed is important for employees to work with a sense of fulfillment, accomplishment and happiness.

Risk Assessment and Prevention of Industrial Accidents

EIZO (Japan) seeks to educate employees and increase safety awareness through periodic workplace patrols and hazard prediction training. In addition, we strive to mitigate risks by applying a risk assessment method to investigate potential hazards and toxicity as well as implement countermeasures, assess the risks involved in handling chemical substances, check targeted substances using safety data sheets and enforce the use of appropriate protective gear for onsite work.

Furthermore, we seek to prevent industrial accidents at EIZO (Overseas) through initiatives such as organizing employee training and distributing handbooks on industrial accidents.

 

 

Activities for Employee Health

We actively pursue measures for safeguarding employee health and improving workplace environments. These include conducting regular health checkups, follow-up guidance, mental stress checks and holding events for maintaining good employee health. For staff who frequently work overtime, we provide one-on-one consultation and guidance to improve work processes and reduce mental stress. In Japan, we also work to maintain employee mental health by assigning in-house staff as contact points for responding to employee concerns and issues.

Anti-Smoking Activities (Globally)

All Group companies prohibit smoking inside company facilities to prevent exposure to passive smoking. In addition, EIZO (Japan) in April 2020 introduced a total ban on smoking during working hours and on company premises.

Protecting Employees from COVID-19

To protect our employees and their families, we designated and complied with action guidelines against COVID-19 governing internal and external activities from the perspectives of preventing infections, infection risks and incidence of internal clusters.


In addition to stringently enforcing hand washing and wearing masks, we implement creative means to maintain appropriate social distance in offices and common areas. We also strictly implement measures such as staggered commuting and employee office hour schedules. In particular, we seek to prevent infections when taking off masks while dining and in other business settings through practices such as refraining from dining with others both in and outside the company and installing partitions in cafeterias and conference rooms.


Furthermore, we offered workplace COVID-19 vaccinations for group employees, their families and our external staff during summer 2021, and 1,500 applicants received their vaccinations at our headquarters (Ishikawa, Japan).
