NESP: New Epson Safety & Health Program

(NESP is a progressive program that Epson has developed based on general occupational safety and health management system principles and organizations.)

  1. Involving all personnel (employees, contractors, and other partners), implement the PDCA cycle for NESP activities and drive continuous improvements.

  2. Investigate potential hazards (via risk assessments, etc.), and thoroughly analyze the causes of industrial incidents and occupational injury accidents. Develop measures based on these to prevent future incidents and accidents.

  3. Foster a vital organizational culture where work and health are in harmonious balance by preventing work-related health problems and supporting employees' own health monitoring and improvement efforts.

  4. Periodically review the preparations you have in place for fires, earthquakes, floods, infectious diseases, and other natural disasters and the actions you have planned to save lives, prevent the spread of damage, and restore business operations. Conduct drills on an ongoing basis to verify preparation and action effectiveness, and implement further improvements.

  5. Systematically train employees, and raise the level of safety and health awareness and management.

  6. Observe occupational safety and health legal and regulatory requirements in your country and region, as well as internal regulations, standards, and policies.

  7. Allocate appropriate management resources for safety and health programs, and continuously make effective improvements.
