Casio believes that it is important to prevent infectious diseases as part of its programs for employee health. The company provides information on infectious diseases, raises awareness, and issues reminders in its in-house bulletins, and it also began providing influenza vaccinations to those employees who wanted one in fiscal 2019. Casio also collects information disseminated by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and others on infectious disease epidemics overseas that could be relevant to people on overseas business trips and informs and alerts people posted in the countries concerned. The company provides information on vaccines and local infectious diseases (dengue fever, malaria, hepatitis, etc.) for employees who have been assigned to work overseas in the guidance carried out before a posting and works on preventative strategies.
Casio has introduced a telework system that enables employees to work from home earlier than originally planned, and has also set up staggered commuting times, commutes using personal cars, and the use of online meetings to reduce opportunities for direct interaction in the case of employees who must come in to work to the office or plant.
COVID-19 Vaccination in the Workplace
Cooperating with the Japanese government’s appeal to accelerate the pace of COVID-19 vaccination, Casio began offering the COVID-19 vaccine in the workplace on June 24, 2021. The vaccine has been administered to about 5,000 people, including Casio Group employees, their family members, temporary employees, and partner companies’ employees.
