Occupational Health & Safety



LIXIL has built a Group-wide occupational health and safety management system to protect all employees, and is working to expand its scope.

Our Approach

LIXIL, in our Group Charter of Corporate Behavior, commits to promoting “the mental and physical well-being of all workers by prioritizing safety to realize an ideal working environment without any work-related accidents.” As for the measures we are pursuing to ensure zero work-related accidents and zero occupational illnesses, we have introduced an occupational health and safety management system and implemented a PDCA approach to help prevent accidents at work. We also promote health management for greater corporate value by enhancing employee health.

Our System

Our occupational health and safety management system is based on the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) and involves implementing Group-wide policies and core rules and conducting internal audits. GROHE has adopted OHSAS 18001, and four of our business locations in North America are aiming to shift from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 certification.

We submit monthly reports to senior management detailing our initiatives and their performance in order to help promote occupational safety-related activities across the Group. We operate specific health and safety management systems at each of our business bases and hold Health and Safety Committees on a single technology business or location basis. We also share and discuss issues related to occupational health and safety, all with the aim of achieving ongoing improvements.
