Sony's Pan Asia sites employ individuals from a wide range of nationalities and cultural backgrounds. A key objective of occupational health and safety (OHS) activities in the region is to raise awareness of safety issues through training and education. Different types of events, which are intended to enhance and raise safety awareness, are held by Sony Group companies across the Pan Asia region.
