Occupational Health and Safety
At the Anritsu Group, we believe that in order to enable every employee to achieve their full potential, we must secure employee safety and health and create comfortable and efficient workplaces.
As part of our efforts to achieve that, the Company emphasizes “Respect for Employees,” as stated in its Charter of Corporate Behavior, and “Improving the working environment,” in the Anritsu Group Code of Conduct, which stipulates the creation of a compliant work environment in which employees can do their jobs with enthusiasm in safety and good health.
In addition, with the goal of the Company and health insurance union playing an active role in maintaining and improving the health of each employee, we have separately established the Anritsu Group Health Management Policy for the Domestic Anritsu Group.

The executive office overseeing occupational health and safety at Anritsu Corporation is in charge of safety and health for the Domestic Anritsu Group and is tasked with formulating and implementing safety and health related matters common to the Group. We also have a safety and health management system that complies with all relevant laws and regulations.
To maintain and improve the health of Group employees, a variety of initiatives and support services are provided by industrial physicians, counselors, and health staff assigned to the Anritsu Corporation Health Management Center. These include regular worksite visits, a variety of medical checkups, post-stress check follow-ups, and individual consultation services for mental and physical health.
The Anritsu Corporation holds a meeting of the Labor-Management Occupational Health and Safety Committee every month. The committee is structured to encourage information-sharing and the horizontal implementation of measures across the Domestic Anritsu Group. Matters discussed by the committee are promptly disclosed along with the minutes via the intranet to all employees.
