Enforcs safety/secrity at constraction sites
Business at the Daiwa House Group is done with the cooperation of many business partners from across our supply chains. Cocreation with our business partners has always been important to us, as shown by our policy to “grow and develop together with our business partners,” which is enshrined in our Employees’ Charter. The majority of our business partners and employees are construction companies that work at plants or on sites. Betterment of safety, health, and working conditions based on respect for human rights is a universal theme. The Daiwa House Group believes that providing job environments where diverse human resources can work with peace of mind helps our business partners secure and retain human resources, and leads to maintaining and strengthening our technology and manufacturing base.
Japan’s shrinking workforce due to its low birth rate and aging population are mirrored in the aging of skilled builders and the increase in the number of foreign workers at construction sites. Building safety management systems that address these issues is increasingly important. Technologies that help secure safety and peace of mind in construction sites are evolving, through reducing workloads, streamlining tasks, and robotizing dangerous work. Meanwhile, there remain many areas of work with processes reliant on manpower. The challenge we face is to build a pleasant working environment for women, elderly workers, and foreign workers, who will play important roles at construction sites in the future.
With this situation in mind, we are working with its business partners to develop and adopt ICT while strengthening safety and health systems to reassure people working on our sites, to achieve the issue “Enforce safety/security at construction sites.”
