Non Profit Organization Tokyo occupational safety and health
center ( TOSHC ) was founded in July, 1998. The main aims of the
center are to keep safety and health for workers, to prevent
occupational accidents and diseases, and to establish comfortable work
environment. Our center
is composed of 2 OSH center in Tokyo. Tokyo East Occupational Safety
and Health Center, founded in 1979, was covering from east to middle
of Tokyo, and San-tama OSH center was mainly covering suburb of Tokyo.
In collaboration with 2 OSH center, we had continued our activities
nearly 20 years. Today, the technical innovation competition and the
sudden transformation of the social economy are bringing a big change
to the workplace and to the work environment. The people who have
mental problems due to hard working and long time are increasing.
According to the recent statistics of occupational diseases and
accidents, more than 2000 people were killed by occupational
accidents, more than 150.000 cases of absence from workplace are
reported, and more than 9.000 new victims of occupational diseases
have been found. Besides, 80% of these accidents and diseases are
happening in the less than 100 employee workplace. In such a present
situation, the TOSHC works to respect the safety and health of workers
truly, and to support promoting better workplace conditions.
