〈Health Management Initiatives for Fiscal Year 2023〉

▪Further Leveling Up of Continuous Efforts

◦Enhancement and thorough implementation of lifestyle improvement guidance by industrial physicians and nursing staff

◦Implementation of cancer screenings for "breast," "cervical," "colorectal," "stomach," and "lung" (maintaining a high screening rate of over 90%)

◦Expansion of interviews by industrial physicians and placement of external counselors as mental health measures

◦Promotion of workplace environment improvements through stress checks and the use of group analysis results

◦Smoking cessation education for young employees

◦Raising awareness of the importance of specific health guidance aimed at preventing lifestyle-related diseases and encouraging higher participation rates

▪New Initiatives

◦Hosting a physical fitness measurement event "How old is your current fitness level?"

 We held a physical fitness measurement event with the aim of making employees aware of the necessity of continuous daily exercise related to maintaining and improving  physical fitness. "Physical fitness" is an essential element for continuing to work healthily in the future and for spending a more fulfilling private life. Knowing one's own
 physical fitness and taking it as an opportunity to adopt exercise habits, we continue this event in the coming years.

NST regards the improvement of health literacy (physical and mental aspects), the improvement of lifestyle habits, and the response to women's health issues as important management themes. In the next fiscal year, we will continue to expand e-learning, seminars, and training related to these topics to deepen employee understanding.
