Mitsui Fudosan regards the health and safety of our employees as an important issue essential for the sustained growth of our company, and we are actively working to maintain and promote the health of employees while striving for a workplace environment where employees can work energetically in accordance with their respective lifestyles.
Mitsui Fudosan has established a Health Committee and Health Management Center-specialized organizations for maintaining and improving employee health-and we are working to achieve goals such as improving the rate at which employees undergo periodic health checkups. We have also set up a Health Consultation Service where employees can freely discuss health issues, and in partnership with the Personnel Department, industrial physicians, public health nurses, and counselors, we are striving to improve the working environment and the physical and mental health of employees.
In meetings with our labor unions, we exchange and coordinate views based on a shared understanding that health and safety are important issues.

Goals and Progress
Mitsui Fudosan has set goals for the health checkup and screening rate to help maintain the health of employees, and we are steadily expanding efforts to improve this rate.
Health Checkup and Screening Rate
- Record in fiscal 2017: 99.3%
- Record in fiscal 2018: 99.5%
- Goal for fiscal 2019: 100%
Data with the third-party verification mark
has been independently verified.
Note: The health checkup and screening rate is the percentage of all steady-basis employees undergoing health checkups or health screening.
The total of all steady-basis employees consists of regular and part-time steady-basis employees as of the end of the fiscal year, excluding those necessarily prevented from undergoing screening (due to international postings, childcare leave, health conditions, etc.).
Through stress check tests by Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance, an outside specialist organization, Mitsui Fudosan periodically monitors the mental health of employees, linking these results with efforts to realize improvements.
In addition to carrying out yearly health checkups, we also offer thorough health screening for all employees over 35 and their spouses, gynecological exams for female employees and the spouses of male employees, and leave to undergo thorough health screening.
We are also working to ascertain the working situation and health status of employees through yearly personal interviews between Personnel Department staff and all employees, stress checks, interviews with an industrial physician for overworked employees, and other programs.
To help employees recover from fatigue and maintain physical/psychological balance, we have established Refre, a facility where a massage specialist is always on duty and they can refresh themselves with a massage or a nap.
