AISIN Group Health Declaration

Our management philosophy includes the ambition to impress people all over the world by providing all kinds of “movement” experiences that move the “heart”.

Also, in April 2021, we stated the AISIN Group Health Declaration and are working on health management based on the recognition that the safety and health of working colleagues is the highest priority in pursuing all the qualities that our customers demand.

Framework for the promotion of health management

We have set up organizations for health management, which include experts such as industrial physicians and public health nurses, and are discussing and executing measures to improve health. To put measures in place more effectively, our Health Management Promotion Council meets four times a year to set medium- to long-term goals, establish measures to accomplish them and ascertain and evaluate the progress of activities. ALL AISIN Health Subcommittee also facilitates the sharing of activities and work between our domestic and overseas group companies to establish group-wide measures.

Aisin‘s health issues and targets

Aisin has identified four key health issues to address—ratio of employees with a BMI below 25, ratio of nonsmoking employees, ratio of employees taking leave for poor mental health for the first time and ratio of employees who have attended mental health training—and announced AISIN Group Health Vision for 2030 in 2021. We strive to be company where people maintain good physical and mental health, make continuous, autonomous steps forward and take on challenges with energy and a positive attitude.

Specific measures to improve physical and mental health

Physical health initiatives

Activities to achieve ideal BMI

We are providing education and holding health events to prevent metabolic syndrome. To maximize the effects of these measures, we refer to past data when creating our curriculum, and adjust the contents accordingly.

Registered dietitians are appointed in employee cafeterias to create environments where healthy food is provided.

Health checkups

We have developed a proprietary system for identifying individuals who have a high risk of illness based on up to 10 years of past checkup results for each employee. When an employee is at a high risk, we take measures such as restrictions on the nature of their work, one-on-one meetings and notifications to prevent symptoms from occurring.

Cancer prevention activities

We work together with our health insurance society to receive subsidies for comprehensive health checkups, and carry out awareness-raising activities to encourage more employees to attend these checkups.

Passive smoking prevention and reduction of smoking rate

We work together with our health insurance society to operate an anti-smoking program and provide support those trying to quit smoking (visits to a facility are partially covered.)

Nonsmoking employees

Initiatives to address health issues specific to women

We provide education to increase understanding in our workplaces about health issues specific to women. We have created a system that helps our female employees to balance their medical needs with work: we cover the cost of gynecological exams and reach out to our employees to encourage more women to use this benefit.

Mental health initiatives

Strengthening our education on self-care and line-care in the workplace

To create a working environment where our employees can work without undue stress, the whole of AISIN Group provides training for managers on how to provide line-care (mental health support) in the workplace. A total of 2,180 people have attended this training so far. 1,439 employees have also attended the self-care education sessions we provide for our employees.

Consultation services for changes in working environment

All of our sites have a consultation service with an internal expert to provide employees with an easily accessible source of advice when they have concerns or are experiencing stress but have no one to talk to, or are isolated due to teleworking.

Stress checks to improve workplaces

The results of workplace stress checks are provided to workplaces as feedback. Workplaces act autonomously to improve, which vitalizes our workplaces.

Trial returns to provide plenty of support for those returning from leave

We have built a framework for a return-to-work program designed by a clinical psychologist so that employees can return from leave without undue stress. We also work together with external medical facilities to provide the frameworks and support necessary for employees to return to work without issues.

Measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19

We have set up infection prevention panels in our workplaces and cafeterias, reduced the number of seats and redesigned our workplaces to enable physical distancing. We have created guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19, which have been rolled out at group companies and at supplier sites. We have also created a framework for vaccinating our employees, and have arranged for employees, personnel who work on our premises and people at our affiliated companies to be vaccinated at our workplaces.

Initiatives for employees traveling overseas for work

For employees traveling overseas for work, including overseas posts, trailing family members and business travel, in addition to warnings and evacuation decisions, we hold seminars and provide information, including details on infectious diseases and immunization from the Quarantine Information Office of the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare and details on safety procedures from each country‘s embassy and consulates so that these employees can keep themselves safe. We have also concluded contracts with companies such as International SOS Japan, which specializes in medical security, and provide assistance services to protect our employees from medical and safety risks in the country or region where they will be traveling or living.

Initiatives for employees working from home

With an increasing number of employees working from home, we have issued a remote work management handbook detailing our principles on creating work environments at home. A checklist is used to assess employees‘ health to prevent occupational health issues such as back pain and eye strain, and we provide information on how to maintain the ideal quantity and quality of communication while working from home.

Social evaluations

We have created a framework to prevent mental health issues among employees and to quickly detect and address any issues that do occur. Our multilateral initiatives have earned us recognition under the Certified Health and Productivity Management Organizations Recognition Program (White 500), which recognizes the companies with the best working conditions, for five consecutive years.
