  3. TA Activities


Omron Taiyo has been conducting Turn Around Activities (TA Activities) since 2007 with the intention to enhance productivity and promote personnel development.
In its TA activities, Omron Taiyo has continuously worked to promote productivity gains through man hour reductions, predetermined quality indicator arrangements and function enlargements, and appropriate inventory management through life cycle assessment-based analysis and measures such as the application of jigs and industrial engineering improvements. In personnel development, TA activities comprise strengthening the management capabilities of managers and supervisors and nurturing human resources to the level of the future leadership class.
Through these measures all employees aim to create lively and rewarding work environments for persons with severe occupational disabilities where every single employee takes the position of a central individual in an independent company that offers a wealth of rewarding work and purpose.

FY2014 - Reason for theme selection
Since improvements regarding persons with severe disabilities proved difficult and no progress was made, Omron Taiyo strove to widen the work scope for persons with severe disabilities.

1. Introduction of equipment to assist in the work operations of wheelchair users

2. Adoption of jigs for the streamlining of installation work operations

3. No more complicated work after the simplification of work procedures

The range of work within the ability of workers with severe disabilities increased from three to eight work operations, thus achieving a broader scope of work.
