The Nissui Group has designated departments in each segment to oversee the Safety and Health Committees of each business location and established the “Occupational Safety and Health Subcommittee,” with the heads of each overseeing department as members. The subcommittee is held once each quarter and addresses various issues relating to health, safety and labor matters of Nissui, including its Group companies.
The Nissui Group has established the Occupational Safety and Health Subcommittee and manages “labor safety,” “work hours” and “harassment” by division.
