Topic: Safety, Health and Well-being Activities in Manufacturing Sites

This session will introduce examples of Vision Zero activities and health and safety activities (Zero Accident Movement) in workplaces in various countries, aiming to reduce occupational accidents, occupational diseases and risk factors in manufacturing sites to zero.

Vision Zero is a global campaign involving companies and organizations that share the belief that all disasters, illnesses, and injuries are preventable, and the fundamental values of safety, health, and happiness. Currently, 11,000 companies and organizations are participating in this campaign, and the number is increasing every year.

Through this session, we aim to build an international network to achieve zero occupational accidents.

Building a Safety Culture in IDEC

This presentation introduces “Building a Safety Culture in IDEC”.

“Safety Culture” evolves through the four stages as follows;

Reactive stage → Dependent stage → Proactive stage → Team learning stage.

Evolving Safety Culture requires strong motivating power.

IDEC’s activities feature that Vision Zero’s 7 Golden Rules is the pillar of activities and that clever approach to foster a sense of belonging is taken in the organization. Belonging is about feeling comfortable being involved in the organization while showing the best of ability in one’s own way and is an important factor of Well-being. The specific topics are as follows.

1.Leadership of top management

2.Positive changes brought by ISO45001 management system

3.Two tools to foster a sense of belonging:

・Awareness Report

・Risk Assessment sheet

4.Human resources development which encourages obtaining safety-related qualifications depending on the type of job.
