TI workplace safety and health are vital to employees’ well-being and productivity. We believe all accidents are preventable, and remain committed to achieving our long-term goal of zero work-related injuries and illnesses.
In 2013, 95 percent (19 of 20) of our manufacturing and assembly/test sites worldwide were certified to the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (BS OHSAS 18001:2007).
During the year, TI managed several strategic safety and ergonomic activities:
- Reviewed all safety incidents weekly: conducted appropriate and prompt root-cause analysis, standardized how cases are recorded and closed, and notified sites to take appropriate corrective actions.
- Focused resources on workplace safety and health at international sites by providing experienced safety and health specialists to support our facilities, as well as enhancing safety technical training for environmental, safety and health (ESH) staff. We increased ESH staffing at our Malaysia, China and Philippines sites. In addition, we reviewed our site safety programs and strengthened incident investigation and management protocols in Asia.
- Confirmed that 100 percent of supervisors had completed ESH leadership training by year-end.
- Conducted ergonomic assessments in Melaka, Malaysia, a recently acquired site that has shown an increase in ergonomic-related cases.
- Reduced ergonomic hazards and injuries through assessments and engineering controls, and provided ergonomics training in five languages.
- Provided additional ergonomic support to design/sales sites and our mobile workforce.
