Health Management Promotion System

We promote Health and Productivity Management with the Director in Charge of the General Affairs and Human Resources Department as general manager and the Head of the General Affairs and Human Resources Department as leader. We hold regular Labor/Management meetings to discuss health issues, and collaborate with health committees at each business site, industrial physicians, and the Hankyu Hanshin Health Insurance Association to continually analyze health issues and improve related measures.
