Initiatives to eliminate workplace accidents
in the construction industry
Although workplace accidents in the construction industry have been declining, it is still at a high level when compared to other industries, comprising approximately 12% of casualties and 34% of fatal accidents within all industries, making construction site safety the highest priority. Furthermore, construction sites today have more elderly workers, inexperienced younger workers, and overseas workers, with different languages and backgrounds. Poor communication is also frequently a reason for workplace hazards.
Workplace accidents in the construction industry
Tokyu Construction has taken its 60th anniversary as an opportunity to boost communication during daily morning Radio Calisthenics/Exercise, by creating 12 patterns of Radio Calisthenics/Exercise in five Japanese dialects (standard dialect, Tohoku dialect, Nagoya dialect, Osaka dialect, Hakata dialect), and seven languages from six overseas countries (English, Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Thai, Indonesian, Burmese and Vietnamese), with the belief that creating an atmosphere that promotes easier communication is the first step toward eliminating accidents.
We hope that selecting the languages according to one’s hometown will create opportunities for communication the first thing in the morning, nurturing relationships that will allow everyone to notice changes in their colleagues’ physical condition.
