Occupational Health Information

What are Local Occupational Health Centers? 

Under the Industrial Safety and Health Law, workplaces that employ 50 or more workers regularly must appoint an occupational physician to conduct health management. However, workplaces with fewer than 50 workers (hereinafter referred to as “small-scale workplaces”) are not required to appoint an occupational physician. To ensure that small-scale workplaces can also receive a wide range of industrial health services, at the request of the national government, the Japan Organization of Occupational Health and Safety (JOHAS), an independent administrative agency, has established local industrial health centers at each Labor Standards Inspection Office (branch office) in Tokyo to serve as local contact points for the Tokyo Occupational Health Support Center.
