Health and Productivity Management

TOYO TIRE considers employee health management from a business perspective and support the idea of strategically conducting health management. We have been reinforcing our preventative measures particularly for mental health issues that are the main cause of long-term absences.

In Japan, as one part of building the basic foundation for practicing health management and Work Engagement, holding mental health care seminars for all employees, from managers and supervisors to general staff. And we also conduct e-learning for mental health. In addition, to understand employee health issues and consider the necessary measures, we have been conducting stress checks at all offices in Japan even before we were required by the Industrial Safety and Health Act. The number of employees who receive the check is over 90% each year, and we are working to improve the work environment by analyzing the group results.
Furthermore, as a specific measure to promote mental and physical health in our employees, we are working to reduce the number of people on long-term sickness leave by promoting early detection and intervention through individual guidance and consultation in cooperation with industrial health staff and Employee Assistance Program (EAP) companies.
We plan to review our return-to-work support measures so that we can provide appropriate support for each employee according to their physical and mental condition.

Our affiliates are dedicated to the promotion of their employees’ health.
