*1 The disabling injury frequency rate and the severity rate are based on data only from Japan.
*2 This excludes Panasonic Homes.

Panasonic's disabling injury frequency rate annually falls below the machinery and electronics manufacturing industry benchmarks, and the same can be said for the degree of disabling injuries, as no accidents leading to death occurred, except in 2016. (In 2016, there was one case of a death from an employee getting caught in equipment in Japan.)
Occupational illness and accidents during travel to and from work are excluded In-hours Subcontractors are included.
