Regular Health Exams that exceed the legally mandated exams

Periodic health checkups are conducted by adding our own items to the statutory items to encourage voluntary health promotion.

Specified Health Exam

Focusing on visceral fat syndrome (metabolic syndrome), we conduct specific health checkups and specific health guidance with the aim of decreasing the number of people with or without lifestyle-related diseases (disease prevention) by providing health guidance to change and improve lifestyle habits that contribute to the syndrome. (For all subscribers between the ages of 40 and 74)

Education and training on improving health consciousness and knowledge (health literacy)

We provide opportunities to learn about health through various training programs with the aim of encouraging autonomous health promotion behavior by improving the health literacy of each employee.

Establishment of various consultation contacts

In-house consultation services for mental and physical health by medical professionals have been established. We have also introduced an EAP (Employee Assistance Program) and online health counseling services by outside staff.

Measures to prevent passive smoking

To prevent employees from passive smoking, we aim to abolish all smoking areas on the premises by the end of FY2023, and are promoting measures such as phased closure of smoking areas and limiting the hours of use of smoking areas. At the same time, we hold smoking cessation seminars at each business site to reduce the health risks associated with smoking, and subsidize the cost of smoking cessation treatment.

Programs to establish exercise habits

Data analysis revealed a correlation between flexibility and the results of health checkups, etc. Therefore, Fujikura has created its own stretching exercises to promote employee health and prevent illness, which are performed every day after lunch breaks.

Introduction of the @Switch! app (pronounced as “At Switch”), a next-generation health management solution

Fujikura Institute of Health and Society, Inc. will be established in 2019* to promote health management in the Fujikura Group. The application "@Switch!" connects employees and those (At Switch)" was developed. @Switch! In addition to self-management through daily activity data and food logs, it is a social networking platform where users can encounter the ideas and presence of others.
