Preventing occupational injuries

Based on the principle that ensuring the safety of employees is the first priority in all business operations, these rules are guiding our proactive efforts to ensure safety and prevent occupational injuries, promote health maintenance and form comfortable workplace environments.
Beginning in 2020, contractor employees at plants and research laboratories whose presence results in mixed operations in the same location have been included in the scope of collation. The Chugai Group is engaged in safety and health management activities to ensure that not only its own employees, but those of our partner companies, can work safely and in good health.

There were 19 occupational injuries in 2020. Of those, three resulted in lost worktime, though there were no cases of occupational illness.
