Occupational health and safety management system
To consistently maintain and develop activities for occupational health and safety, we have introduced an occupational health and safety management system at EIZO Corporation (Japan) and EIZO MS Corporation (Japan), which account for approximately 80% of total EIZO production. We promote health and safety activities that cover all onsite staff based on this system and have obtained the ISO 45001 certification in 2019.
ISO 45001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System)
The certification has been maintained and updated by third parties through external audits.

Risk assessment and prevention of industrial accidents
EIZO (Japan) seeks to educate employees and increase safety awareness through periodic workplace patrols and hazard prediction training. In addition, we strive to mitigate risks by applying a risk assessment method to investigate potential hazards and toxicity as well as implement countermeasures, assess the risks involved in handling chemical substances, check targeted substances using safety data sheets and enforce the use of appropriate protective gear for onsite work.
Furthermore, we seek to prevent industrial accidents at EIZO (Overseas) through initiatives such as organizing employee training and distributing handbooks on industrial accidents.
Activities for employee health
We actively pursue measures for safeguarding employee health and improving workplace environments. These include conducting regular health check-ups, follow-up guidance, mental stress checks and holding events for maintaining good employee health. For staff who frequently work overtime, we provide one-on-one consultation and guidance to improve work processes and reduce mental stress. In Japan, we also work to maintain employee mental health by assigning in-house staff as contact points for responding to employee concerns and issues.
Anti-smoking activities (globally)
All Group companies prohibit smoking inside company facilities to prevent exposure to passive smoking. In addition, EIZO (Japan) in April 2020 introduced a total ban on smoking during working hours and on company premises.
Health day (EIZO Europe GmbH, Germany)
We held a health event for employees with assistance of experts from external companies and medical institutions. Employees became even more health-conscious through activities such as exercising, massage, self-examinations and by interacting with experts.
Health mobile (EIZO GmbH, Germany)
We conducted a health event in cooperation with a major health insurance company in Germany. Employees checked their stress levels, levels of nutrition, sleep using equipment inside a camping car and received personal advice on daily routines to improve their health.
