Promotion of Health and Productivity Management

Fuji Oil Group Health Management Declaration

In the Fuji Oil Group Management Philosophy, we set forth our Vision of contributing to the society by creating the future of delicious and healthy foods. Employees are the source of value creation for the Fuji Oil Group, and we believe that this Vision can be realized only if each and every employee is healthy.

In January 2017, we announced the Fuji Oil Group Health Management Declaration, which states that we will proactively engage ourselves in health management. Based on this declaration, we will take actions to support our employees in sustaining and improving their health in such areas as prevention of life-style related illness and mental health problems.

Fuji Oil Group Health Management Declaration

In Fuji Oil Group’s Management Philosophy, we set forth our Vision: "We seek to contribute to the society by creating the future of delicious and healthy foods using our core technologies in oils & fats and soy."

Health is important not only for the happiness of our employees and their families but also to raise the strength of our Group. So here, Fuji Oil Group declares that we will proactively engage ourselves in Health Management.

  • The highest priority in Health Management is the health and happiness of our employees. If we can enjoy our life and work actively, it will lead to the enhancement of our corporate value. We can then work for people, solve their problems, and drive forward our contribution to the society.
  • In Health Management the most important thing we need to be aware of is that we need to take care of our own health by ourselves. We all will keep ‘health’ in mind, and will work "ethically, righteously, positively and vigorously."
  • As part of Health Management, we will take actions to support our employees to sustain and improve their health. Specifically, we shall implement initiatives in such areas as prevention of life-style related illness and mental health problems, and also activities to promote physical strength.

Implementing health and productivity management

The Fuji Oil Group has set forth the goals of "contributing to the society by creating the future of delicious and healthy foods" and "ensuring the health and happiness of the employees of the Fuji Oil Group" in its mid-term management plan, and engages in health management based on the Fuji Oil Group Health Management Declaration. In July 2016, a subcommittee on promotion of health management was inaugurated within the Creative Work Promotion Conference. As a result of the subcommittee’s examination of specific measures for promoting health management, enhancing the promotion system and other issues, the following initiatives will be planned, introduced and implemented.

  • Measures to Protect Employees (Ensuring Mental and Physical Health)
    Together with implementing various regular health examinations, stress checks and counseling, we will further enhance our in-house health counseling services.
  • Changing Attitudes about One’s Own Health
    We will introduce a health measurement system on a trial basis and promote awareness of health self-assessment (awareness of one’s own health condition and of managing one’s own health)
  • Measures and Education for Improving Eating Habits
    We will consider lectures on improving eating habits (food education), training for supervisor-provided care and self-care to prevent mental illness, and the provision of healthy menus that proactively incorporate Fuji Oil’s soy products at company cafeterias in Japan.
  • Physical Fitness Promotion Measures
    We will plan and carry out events such as walking and weight loss rallies at each business site.

Occupational Safety and Health

Basic Policy of Safety and Health

The Fuji Oil Group Management Philosophy places "safety, quality and the environment" as the first of its Values, and among them, "safety" is the issue we must give the highest priority for our continuing growth. In January 2017, the Fuji Oil Group established its Health Management Declaration, and set the following six items in the Basic Policy of Safety and Health as one of its initiatives in the area of safety and health. We are aiming for zero lost-time injuries under the slogan, "Let’s create a safe workplace together by observing the rules and sharing our experience."

Basic Policy of Safety and Health

  • The base of our thought is the sanctity of human life.
  • The base of our safety activities is the participation by all our officers and employees.
  • Every manager has a responsibility of safety control.
  • Good physical and mental health makes you a safer worker.
  • Making our workplace safe.
  • Becoming aware of and avoiding safety risks.

Occupational safety and health initiatives

Recognizing the prevention of labor accidents at manufacturing sites as one of its most important responsibilities, Fuji Oil Group implements various measures. Our measures to reduce labor accidents include the following: conducting surveys to identify dangerous operations and situations that can lead to accidents, promotion of the PDCA cycle for risk management, and daily "hiyari-hatto (near-miss events)" activities.

In 2016, the number of labor accidents at group companies in Japan totaled 27 (of which six were lost-time injuries), up from the previous year. The majority of accidents were cuts, bruises and fractures. We will continue to focus on preventing the occurrence of labor accidents by ensuring that all workers exercise proper safety precautions and follow the specified procedures while working with machinery.

As a preventive measure against human error at our sites in Japan, in March 2016 we started "Yubisashi Kosho (pointing and calling) Promotion 2017 Activities" under the slogans "Call and point" and "Point once for each operation." The entire company is working together to prevent labor accidents by establishing the practice of "pause and confirm," which is the basis of occupational safety.
