Asia Occupational Safety and Health SAKURA Project

These days, the number of Japanese companies starting their operation in Asian region is prominently increasing. However, there are some cases where the lack of information and experiences leads to insufficient OSH in companies' overseas bases.
Therefore, JISHA conducts this project in order to contribute to preventing labor accidents as well as raising the safety awareness of the local employees by introducing know-how and experiences in OSH field, which have been built up in Japan for a long time, in safety and health activities of Japanese affiliated companies.

Support Overview

JISHA conducts two kinds of incorporated supports : One is for ‘OSH Basic Training in Japan’ where experts of safety and health teach their know-how and experiences for preventing labor accidents, and the other is for ‘Follow-up Training in Thailand’ where OSH experts are dispatched to overseas bases to provide advice and guidance.
