Kansai Electric Power -power with heart-

Efforts Based on Our CSR Action Principal

Safety and health efforts

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 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.

Cultivation measures for “human capital” innovation
The “human capital” that we seek

Considering ideals such as our Guidelines for Action for the realization of our Management Philosophy, which is the unshakable sense of values held by the Kansai Electric Power Group, we have established characteristics that group employees should possess as “human capital.” These characteristics that are necessary for our corporate group to achieve sustainable growth in the midst of an era of intense competition, include “For Customer,” “Morality and Mission,” “Challenge,” ”Self-Reliance” and “Execution.”

Opening of the Kansai Electric Power Group Academy

On July 1, 2018, we opened the Kansai Electric Power Group Academy with our president acting also as the school president. In the Academy, in addition to the idea of “valuing people,” which we have been putting into practice until now, we also incorporate the company belief that “cultivating human resources is the most important thing for coming out on top in a severe competitive environment.” We have prepared a variety of trainings and education systems, and we are supporting the independent career creation of employees so they can each design careers according to their individual readiness.

e-challenge system

We will implement an “e-challenge system” as an in-house open system that allows people to take on the challenges of diverse career fields. We promote opportunities that enable employees to succeed and grow even more in a wide range of fields, and we support the independent career development of each individual so that they can exercise their abilities to their maximum extents based on high levels of motivation.
