Initiatives for Maintaining and Promoting Health
The Citizen Health Insurance Society conducts operations to maintain and improve the health of Group employees and their families. The society has been performing free checkups for family members since the start of metabolic syndrome-specific health checkups and health guidance. In fiscal 2011, general checkups that include cancer checks were added, and in fiscal 2012, mobile checkups performed on a bus were added and information was provided concerning checkups to be conducted in the autumn. Conducting activities that focus on employees, the society offers specific health guidance to people at a high risk of developing lifestyle diseases, providing advice on lifestyle improvements. In fiscal 2013, the society commenced a smoking cessation support initiative and began making health counseling visits to the young-elderly (aged 65 to 74). Efforts are also made to promote the use of generic prescription drugs, nursing care and health clinics are held for employees and their families, and families are supported through operation of a 24-hour mental and physical health consultation hotline. The society works to enhance the content of checkups and improve cancer diagnosis rates for employees and their families.

Mental Health Training
In our Tokyo and Tokorozawa plants, the Mental Health Committee is carrying out mental health care training for all managers throughout Group* companies. In fiscal 2015, an industrial physician carried out training at the Tokyo plant with the theme of “What is mental health care?” Managerial staff in their 40s and 50s took the classes, with a questionnaire indicating that many found the training useful in helping raise their awareness of problems among subordinates and in how to support them;96% of respondents answered affirmatively when asked “Do you think you can talk to subordinates about whom you have concerns?” Looking forward, we will work to provide training that will increase awareness and understanding of mental health and that will be of assistance in supporting staff who are having problems.
