Initiatives for Achieving a Sustainable Society




Occupational Health and Safety

If employees are to maximize their abilities and potential, they must be physically and mentally healthy, and be able to work in a safe, comfortable environment. The Nichirei Group considers its employees to be irreplaceable and works with them to create safe, open and invigorating workplaces.

Health Management Initiatives

■Basic Policy

  1. We will promote the creation of a lively workplace where labor and management cooperate, based on the ideal that states that good work has its basis in a healthy mind and body.
  2. Each of our employees will work hard to increase his/her health awareness, and will take an active role in creating a work environment that promotes good health.
  3. We will strive for health management based on the three pillars of “health maintenance and improvement,” “mental health measures,” and “safety and hygiene control.”

■Management Framework


Newly established the Health Promotion Group in Human Resources Strategy & General Affairs as a department dedicated to

health management

• Formulated the Nichirei Group Health Declaration and Group Health Management Standards

and representatives


Restructured the Health Promotion Group into the Health Promotion Center and increased the number of occupational health staff

(public health nurses)

■Main Initiatives in FY2021

• Countermeasures against COVID-19

In cooperation with the Group Risk Management Office, the occupational health staff of the Health Promotion Center built a support system to provide appropriate advice, prevent the spread of COVID-19, and prevent discrimination against individuals in the event that an employee contracts COVID-19.

  • 100% Health Check-up Rate and Enhancement of Post-examinationFollow-up

In 2020 and 2021, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, all employees completed annual health check-ups. In addition, under the post-examinationfollow-up system, those determined by an industrial physician to require additional support were remotely interviewed by public health nurses as appropriate using e-mail or other online tools. Employees who score a D on their health examinations and choose to undergo detailed examinations are eligible for a subsidy program as members of the Nichirei Health Insurance Association.

• Health-related Events

Since FY2017, the Nichirei Group has been holding regular health-related events, providing employees with specific health promotion opportunities and helping them avoid lifestyle-related diseases. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have held events on themes such as adequate exercise, improving sleeping patterns and mental health. In questionnaires, more than 92% of participants at each event responded that the event was beneficial.

■Introduction of Subsidy Program for Outpatient Smoking Cessation Treatment

In FY2021, 34 employees participated in the smoking cessation program, and 24 were successful. In June 2021, the Nichirei Health Insurance Association introduced a subsidy program for outpatient smoking cessation treatment provided by hospital physicians. In these and other ways, we are supporting the health of our employees.

Health and Safety Committee

The Nichirei Group established health and safety committees to fulfill the requirements of Japan’s Industrial Safety and Health Act, and is working to promote health and safety management aimed at preventing occupational accidents and managing the health of employees. At our head office, as well as at each branch office, we strive to eliminate long working hours and reduce overtime work, while at food factories and refrigerated warehouses, we do our best to prevent accidents. This is in addition to other working environment improvement efforts we undertake, tailored to the conditions of each workplace.

Launch of Safety and Quality Training Using VR

In FY2022, Nichirei Logistics Group started using virtual reality (VR) for safety and quality training at its logistics work sites.

  • Until now, practical training has been implemented through courses using a mock-up refrigerated warehouse at certain training facilities (safety and quality training centers). This made it difficult for employees stationed far away to

participate. It was also difficult for trainees to envision what accidents might happen if rules or manuals were not followed correctly.

  • With the introduction of a new tool that uses VR technology, employees can learn proper work procedures efficiently without having to attend a safety and quality training center. They can also experience virtual simulations of accidents that might occur as a result of unsafe behaviors. This has led to further improvement of safety awareness.

Food Factory Safety

Nichirei Foods has identified three priority measures for safety-related activities at food factories: safety patrols, near-miss- related activities and the mandatory observation of safety rules.

Monthly safety patrols are tailored to each factory, with effective checklist items determined based on site feedback. Patrols are conducted mainly in the early morning and late at night, when fewer managers are on staff. We also ask employees to share work-related issues and opinions.

  • Held as needed, near-miss-related activities are designed to reinforce reporting practices and inform employees about possible dangers through the sharing of information about accident near misses. Activities reconfirm evaluation criteria, thus ensuring consistency in methodologies for classifying an incident as a near-miss. Preventive steps are then taken as needed.

Occupational Health and Safety Initiatives for Foreign Technical Interns

Foreign technical interns working in Japan at the Nichirei Group undergo training including occupational health and safety training. This helps to prevent occupational accidents and facilitate health management for those adjusting to life in another country, while at the same time helping them improve their Japanese-language skills. Our goal is to create workplaces where all Nichirei Group employees can work safely and healthily with purpose.
