Safety and Health Management Consultation Team

Safety and Health Management Consultation Team

 In addition to general measures to prevent industrial accidents that are tailored to their work, foreign workers are also required to receive safety and health training in a way that they can fully understand the content of the training.
 On the other hand, because businesses owners employing foreign workers may also be unfamiliar with safety and health management for foreign workers, it is necessary to support them by ensuring there is a consultation system for safety and health management for foreign workers and other measures to prevent industrial accidents involving foreign workers.
 Therefore, the Safety and Health Management Consultation Team has been organized in the Foreign Residents Support Center to provide consultation services for safety and health management for foreign workers
 Please feel free to make use of this service. It is provided free of charge.

 We accept consultations from business operators who employ foreign workers about various concerns regarding health and safety management.
