Policies

To create workplace environments where employees can remain safe and healthy, Kansai Electric Power promotes efforts to create stimulating and lively workplace environments. The Safety and Health Activity Guidelines establish priority measures for the entire company, and each workplace creates an annual Safety and Health Activity Plan comprised of efforts to be taken based on those guidelines, and develops its own independent Safety and Health activities.

Formulating accident recurrence prevention policies

On the rare occasions when accidents occur, we formulate recurrence prevention policies based on the results of investigations and analyses in order to utilize them as “lessons.” By rolling these out consistently throughout the company, we Formulating accident recurrence prevention policies are striving to achieve “zero accidents.”
As a result of these efforts, our accident frequency rate* is lower than the national average.

*This accident frequency rate represents the number of casualties from work accidents resulting in at least one day of absence from work per million hours of work.

Specific initiatives
Radical revisions of our training systems

In order to realize the strengthening of our personnel foundations, we have radically revised our training systems. For example, from the perspective of personnel development, we have moved forward the timing of when employees receive trainings so that they can learn sooner compared to in the past. In addition, we have newly established “elective trainings” with the goals of further augmenting the strengths of individuals and improving and mastering areas where they need development as well as trainings intended to further improve the management abilities of managers. Even as we undertake reforms such as these, we are also continuing to implement specialized trainings to reliably transmit and improve specialized skills and techniques. We do this in order to assure the development of the personnel who will continue to fulfill our unchanging missions to provide safe and stable fuel supplies and execute our business reliably. Through these efforts, we are seeking to strengthen our “human capital” further.

Overview of revisions to training systems
Early
cultivation
Seek to make the timing earlier and more flexible for receiving trainings that had previously been received uniformly after promotions, making it possible to take them before promotions according to roles and job rotations at workplaces, for example.
Confirm
degrees of
learning
Conduct confirmations of degrees of learning in order to increase concentration during lectures and promote the certain learning of training contents. In addition, use these confirmation results as opportunities to objectively confirm individual strengths and development points, and apply this to OJT.
Establish
elective
trainings
Establish diverse and flexible elective trainings that enable people to gain necessary knowledge and skills at appropriate times according to, for example, their work experiences and that further augment individual strengths and support their development points.
Strengthen
management
abilities
Enhance trainings that seek to strengthen management abilities in order to support furthering effectiveness as core members of the workplace, especially for management class employees.

In addition, we established the Kansai Electric Power Group Diversity Promotion Policy in December 2015, and we are making efforts with the promotion of diversity as one of our management strategy.

Moreover, our company supports and has signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles, which were created by UN Women and the United Nations Global Compact.
