Promotion of health 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.
The Toyo Tire Group has compiled the Infection/Contagion Response Manual, which stipulates a necessary risk management system, procedures in ordinary times, the code of conduct for employees, and procedures in times of emergency, with the aim of mitigating damage by infection/contagion, protecting the safety of its employees, and minimizing the occurrence of such risks.

Stepping Up Anti-Heatstroke Measures

In recent years, heatstroke while on duty has become an additional risk. To combat this new challenge to industrial health, TOYO TIRE controls heat and ventilates air at workplaces, and ensures that its employees hydrate periodically.
A prime example of this initiative can be found at our special subsidiary, Showa Estate Co., Ltd. They are seeking to prevent the spread of infections and mitigate heat at the same time by, for example, introducing new uniforms to reduce the burden of outdoor cleanup tasks, a job that is vulnerable to extreme temperatures. Drying quickly and giving a cooling sensation, this brand new uniform increases comfort for workers while on duty.
We are planning to distribute the uniform to other sites in a bid to create an environment that assures the safety of employees.
