Working in a safe environment
MHI-MS considers its employees to be its most important asset to achieve its goals and believes that all employees are entitled to a safe and secure workplace where no one is exposed to unnecessary risk.
MHI-MS is committed to:
- continuously review and improve its occupational health and safety procedures and guidelines, and

In support of MHI-MS's commitment every employee is obliged to:

- Work environment free of harassment
Every MHI-MS operation should be characterized by mutual trust and respect for the individual.
Therefore MHI-MS will not tolerate:
- sexual harassment,
- any other kind of harassment, whether direct or indirect, physical or psychological, verbal or non-verbal, and
- any other action or activity that creates a hostile working environment for its employees.
Contact Offices for Employee Consultations and Approaches to Prevent Harassment
Our Company has established a "Whistle blowing contact office for compliance" operated both inhouse and externally as a contact office for employee consultations. For harassment-related issues, we have set up a "Contact office for consultations on harassment" internally and externally as a contact office specializing in approaches to prevent harassment.
Our Company has set up a contact office specializing in the prevention of harassment to receive information on the circumstances of persons involved through dialogue and to properly deal with harassment incidents while affirming the intentions of persons seeking consultation for resolution.
Promotion of Active Female Participation
Our Company has established the following basic policy as a "General Employer Action Plan" under the Act to Promote Women's Participation and Advancement in the Workplace.
Create a workplace where all employees, whether men or women, can actively participate, promote reduced working hours, and actively approach the promotion of work-and-life balance under the initiative of top management.
Under this basic policy, our Company endeavors to reduce long working hours by setting the goal of "Reducing the average total annual working hours per employee to less than 2000 hours by the end of March 2021."
The following are the main measures to meet the above goal:
- Designate every Wednesday as a "refresh day," and a salary and lump-sum payment payday as a "harmony day," and designate the refresh day and harmony day as "days when employees leave work on time."
- The manager of each workplace takes the initiative to encourage his or her subordinates in the workplace to take paid annual leave. The goal is to have each employee take 20 or more days of paid annual leave, on average, per year.
In addition, our Company promotes its own work system reforms and takes steps to streamline work, etc. within the framework of this activity.
