Health Management

Our company considers employee heath to be a management issue. In order to implement and also clarify our health management initiatives inside and outside the company, we issued a Health Declaration that further promotes better health management for our employees.

Health Declaration

YKK AP aspires to become a company where all employees are able to work with pride and pleasure.
We believe that a prerequisite for achieving this goal is for all our employees and their family members to maintain and improve their mental and physical health, which will enable every employee to demonstrate their unique qualities and capabilities to the maximum and to propel our company's growth and contribute to society.
Based on this concept, our company, Health Insurance Society, employees and their families are united in their endeavors for health promotion.

Fundamental Health Promotion Policy and Action Targets

Fundamental Health Promotion Policy

The YKK Group sees the health of its employees are an important company asset, and we work with employees to promote good health by supporting the ability of each employee to continue working on good physical and mental health and reducing lifestyle-related disease and mental illness.

Action Targets

1. Take action to reduce lifestyle-related disease
2. Take measures to reduce mental illness
3. Take measures to support a balance between treatment for illness and work

We are promoting both prevention and treatment through a nationwide system of health management centers and industrial physicians. To prevent lifestyle-related disease, we are working to improve the quality of health management through employee health evaluations using a health management support system, promoting the implementation of post-checkup measures, and cooperating with the Health Insurance Society to encourage lifestyle improvements. We are also taking steps to create workplaces with zero secondhand smoke throughout the company. To prevent mental health issues, we are expanding mental health training, supporting self-care using a stress check system, and improving work environments.
