Together with Employees

The Tamaki Plant promotes to create a workplace in which employees can work safely by practicing occupational safety, disaster prevention, traffic safety and health management.

Efforts for Occupational Health and Safety and Health Management

For the purpose of eliminating occupational accidents and managing employee's health, we promote health and safety awareness activities by creating reports about occupational accidents that have occurred at offices and plants of Kyocera Group and offering advice concerning health management, such as heat-related illness, flu, infection prevention and routine medical examinations at the monthly employee morning assembly.
In an effort to promote occupational health and safety, we develop activities for the improvement of health and safety, risk assessment and near-miss prevention. Also, to ensure safety, we conduct monthly safety patrols by Plant Managers and Safety Managers, weekly patrol by Health Managers and half-yearly health and safety patrols by the Environment and Safety Supervisor of Kyocera Document Solutions Group.

We continue to strive to raise health awareness of employees on a daily basis. As part of these efforts, at the public locations in the plant, we have set up multi-purpose rooms where exercising equipment and ping-pong tables are placed to establish an energetic working environment and help employees to tackle health promotion, individually, by creating opportunities to communicate and exercise.

Mie Prefecture is located in the the Nankai Trough area, where high magnitude earthquakes are expected to occur. We have conducted fire-fighting and disaster drills on a regular basis, as well as installed an Emergency Earthquake Early Warning System for the purpose of minimizing the damage when such a disaster occurs.
Fire-fighting and disaster drills include initial actions training to protect employees by emergency earthquake announcements, emergency contacts and initial fire-fighting drills based on assumed fire and evacuation drills. Also, additional training in the use of outdoor fire hydrants and preparedness for nighttime disasters have been conducted since 2012 to ensure appropriate responses to such disasters.

Efforts to Ensure Safety in the Pathways in the Plant

Efforts to ensure the safety of pedestrians in the plant have been conducted. Color coding ("Green belts") to differentiate between traffic zones for pedestrians vs. traffic zones for vehicles allows employees, as well as visitors, to clearly recognize the zone in which they should walk and helps to enhance and ensure pedestrians and traffic safety in the plant.

Efforts for Traffic Safety

Our staff often use cars to commute to work or visit customers. We, therefore, conduct traffic safety activities, such as traffic safety workshops.We establish a company car driving license system, and only employees who satisfy in-house certification standards and have a traffic safety SD card are allowed to drive company cars.
Driving analyzers* are installed to monitor how the cars are used. This information is used to improve the safety awareness of employees who drive company cars.
We also participate in traffic safety campaigns that are held on the streets during National Traffic Safety Week in cooperation with the local community.

*Driving Analyzer : Recording driving data including speed, sudden acceleration, or emergency braking that are used to confirm if there is a dangerous driving behavior.
