Health and Safety

Ensuring the health and safety of its employees is positioned as one of Toyota's most important longstanding business activities, and will continue to be so going forward.

Philosophy for health and safety

The physical and mental health of our employees is the driving force behind our good performance, and our top management has announced that Toyota aims to become a health-first company. For safety, under its basic safety and health philosophy, "Safe work is the gate to all work. Let us pass through this gate," Toyota is disseminating its strong desire for its employees to never be involved in occupational accidents.

Health and safety function policy

Aiming to develop human resources and workplaces capable of positively thinking and taking action to safeguard their health and safety, Toyota is promoting the instillation and deepening of its interactive health and safety culture on a global scale.

Diversity and Inclusion

Toyota's strengths lie in our capacity to respect our employees' abilities to think and promote reforms involving every member. Toward the transformation from a car company into a mobility company to leverage recent technical innovations centered on CASE, this capacity is growing increasingly important as we continue to create innovations steadily in existing areas while taking on challenges in new areas, and are required more than ever to provide products and services from diverse viewpoints of various members of society.

Amid such an environment, Toyota considers diversity and inclusion to be one of the key elements of our business infrastructure, and we are working to create an attractive workplace where employees with wide-ranging skills and values, irrespective of gender, age, nationality, race, ethnicity, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status or the presence of children, can demonstrate their abilities to the fullest and achieve self-realization.

In order to become a company that is needed and chosen by society, we are promoting collaboration with a wide variety of partners both inside and outside the company while putting into practice the values Toyota has embraced since our founding, such as the attitude of humbly learning and taking on challenges from the customer's viewpoint.
