Safety and health

In keeping with the basic philosophy that “safety and health of employees of the Nippon Steel Group is the Group's most important, top-priority values and the basis that supports business development,” the Nippon Steel Group has firmly adhered to its manufacturing values, which include observing the principles of prioritizing safety, protecting the environment, and preventing disasters. We are working on all of the related activities to improve the level of our Occupational Safety and Health Management System (OSHMS) while creating a safe and secure workplace.

Creation of a workplace which is disciplined but has a comfortable and friendly atmosphere with the company, business partners, and group companies working with a sense of unity

We strive to create a disciplined but comfortable and friendly workplace atmosphere through open communications, enhanced education programs on safety and health, and support for the safety activities of group companies and our business partners. Our safety and health policy applies not only to our company but also to our affiliated partner companies.

Reducing disaster risks to zero

We make a risk assessment when planning a new project and regularly conduct safety and risk assessment for existing projects, to prevent accidents and reduce risks. We also seek for greater safety of equipment even when such equipment is essentially safe, and take countermeasures against human error. We also actively promote use of IT in safety measures, such as checking worker location data via GPS, safety surveillance cameras, and helmet-mounted cameras. We conduct analysis of actual accidents for prevention of similar accidents and make known effective examples of accident-preventive measures.

Acquisition of third-party certification

Nippon Steel's 12 steelworks and offices acquired the ISO (JIS Q) 45001 Health and Safety certification (published in March 2018) as of April 2023.

Making work and workplace environments more comfortable and improving the physical and mental health of our employees

Regarding health management, besides improving healthcare counseling for employees, we make efforts for early detection and appropriate actions in the area of mental health. As to measures against asbestos, we have taken steps in accordance with laws and regulations, and completed the shift from asbestos to alternatives, except for those areas without the risk of exposure, by the end of fiscal 2009. Moreover, we offer consultation services to our current and former employees so that they can discuss their health concerns and deal with asbestos issues in an appropriate manner. As we are developing business in Thailand, Vietnam, India, and other countries, we proactively deal with global health issues such as HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria, for employees who are located or are newly assigned in these countries and for their families, through immunization, seminars and other measures. We will continue to appropriately respond to health issues.

Safety Promotion Committee and Safety & Health Committee

Initiatives to deal with risk management and other issues related to labor safety & health risk management (i.e., ascertaining progress status of horizontal development of safety initiatives for abolishing similar disasters) are led by the Safety Promotion Committee chaired by an executive officer in charge of labor safety. The Committee regularly reports to the Board of Directors which supervises its activities. The Safety & Health Committee, participants of which include representatives of the labor union and each workplace, has a scope of its activities in all offices and works. Representatives from the management team, including officers in charge of safety & health, and from the labor union, meet regularly to exchange opinions. Through such dialogues between management and labor, we seek to ensure the safer labor environment.

As a result of continuous execution of these measures, safety improved in fiscal 2022. There were 5 accidents for Nippon Steel's employees1 and 16 for employees of subcontracting companies (including zero fatal accident for Nippon Steel and one in subcontracting companies) The accident frequency rate was 0.11 (compared to Japan's steel industry average of 0.98) and the accident severity rate was 0.04 (vs. 0.26). We will continue to strive for a safe work environment with the safety wellness targets for fiscal 2023 that are zero fatalities/severe accidents and less than 0.10 as the accident frequency rate.

Safety training

We make efforts to improve training for accident prevention. The safety training programs are attended by all newly-appointed managers of manufacturing worksites (81 managers in fiscal 2020, 80 in fiscal 2021 and 65 in fiscal 2022). Our Taikan Program (an experience-based safety education program) allows employees to experience worksite risk through simulation, so as to better prepare them in anticipating and managing risk. In addition, we regularly hold safety and health education programs (74 participants in fiscal 2022) for the safety and health staff of our Group companies and major cooperative companies, striving to enhance information sharing about our safety and health management approaches and activities and the acquisition of knowledge about laws and regulations related safety and health.
