Create well-being, beyond safety

IDEC celebrated its 75th anniversary in November 2020.

Since our founding as “Izumi Shokai” in 1945, as a leading company of HMI (Human-Machine Interface), we have provided a variety of products and services by integrating our core technologies into products to respond to changing customer needs. As a company that develops and provides the products that “protect the lives of people", we also have promoted safety and ANSHIN*1, aiming to create a safe and comfortable environment in a global community. We are proactively dedicating ourselves to promote the well-being*2 of all people both inside and outside the company.

*1 ANSHIN: a sense of trust and assurance without any fear or stress

*2 Well-being is a concept that individuals are ensured of their rights and self-realization and are in good physical, mental, and social condition.

“The IDEC WAY”, our corporate vision newly established in 2019, advocates “Pioneer the new norm for a safer and sustainable world.” This vision expresses our determination to become a pioneer of tomorrow’s new standards through our role in building the future of manufacturing and its new potential, and to realize a safer, sustainable society that brings happiness and ANSHIN to all people.

IDEC Group strives to realize a society in which everyone can live healthily, happily, and vigorously.

We are working to improve the well-being of our employees by addressing life-work balance and health management through the enhancement of welfare facilities such as a cafeteria and a sports gym, increasing the rate of employees taking various types of leave, and actively promoting measures to maintain and improve their health.

IDEC Group aims to become a company that pursuits and realizes the world’s highest level of safety, ANSHIN and well-being not only for our employees but for a society as a whole by providing a variety of products that ensures safety and ANSHIN.

IDEC’s Goal for Well-being

IDEC Group proposes initiatives to make various workplaces in the world more rewarding and meaningful from four key aspects; Technology, Human, Standards, and Management.

In order to improve the well-being of workers, it is important not only to supply high-performance, easy-to-use, and stable quality products but also to educate human resources, comply with rules such as standards and norms, and have management committed to the well-being. IDEC has conducted a holistic approach from the four aspects mentioned above to realize safety, health, and well-being in worldwide workplaces. We would like to introduce the summary as follow.

Raise the safety of workplace to higher level through the development of safety personnel

Enhanced safety management in personnel development (Safety Officer)

For realizing a safe work environment, the understanding by the management is required. The safety officer is a personnel qualification system to certify the possession and understanding of the knowledge on safety. At IDEC, not only the management acquires the certification, but also we promote to raise the awareness of its importance among customers and other stakeholders.

Enhanced safety technology in personnel development (Safety Assessor)

IDEC aspires to become a company that pursues and achieves safety, ANSHIN, and well-being unrivalled in the world. In order to contribute from a technological aspect, all employees learn about safety regardless of their profession, and each employee challenges to acquire safety assessor qualification that certifies the knowledge and ability about machinery safety based on the international safety standards.

Enhanced safety in personnel development at manufacturing sites

IDEC continues to take a proactive approach to the education and the qualification system necessary for employees at manufacturing sites. Each employee is actively engaged in improving skills and acquiring qualifications.


Establish safety to workplaces by promoting safety management

Establish and enhance safety and health management

IDEC takes the initiative in acquiring the certification of ISO 45001, the international standard for occupational health and safety management systems (OHSMS). In March 2019, Takino factory, one of our major factories, acquired the ISO 45001 certification by Japan Industrial Safety & Health Association (JISHA), which is the first certification in Japan’s electrical machinery industry. By March, 2021, four major factories in Japan have acquired the ISO45001 certification. In 2025, OHSMS will be expanded to all the factories in Japan and three sites overseas to ensure the safety, health and well-being of our employees.

Promote Vision Zero Activity, Seven Golden Rules

Vision Zero is a campaign advocated by the International Social Security Association (ISSA), an umbrella organization of the International Labor Organization (ILO), aiming to achieve safety, health and well-being at workplaces. The campaign is based on the belief that all the accidents, injuries, and diseases in workplaces have causes, and they can be prevented by strong commitment by leaders*. IDEC is inspired by Vision Zero approach, and not only implementing its own activities but also raising awareness among its stakeholders.
