Nurturing a safe workplace
Engagement | Training | Reporting
An engaged workforce is critical to achieving outstanding safety performance, which is why leadership at all levels of the company support and reinforce consistent safety practices.
Our management teams deliver meaningful safety messages that encourage employees to prioritize safety and speak up about any potential hazards. The company also reinforces expectations about maintaining a strong safety culture through ongoing articles, posters and reminder emails. Employees can also anonymously contact the TI Ethics Office with questions or concerns.
TI's U.S. Safe, Right, Fast campaign reinforces the importance of working safely in all of our operations. In 2011, TI leaders starred in a short video that dramatized the potential consequences of not paying attention to one's surroundings while at the office.
Our training programs focus on regulatory requirements; internal environmental, safety and health (ESH) standards; and accepted safe practices. Employees participate in a range of applicable training courses specific to their role that begin at new hire orientation and continue throughout their career.
We train employees to:
All TI new hires receive an introduction to TI's expectations, the ESH policy, and TI's commitment to compliance and providing a safe work environment. Employees also learn about potential hazards in their work area; emergency procedures; and (if applicable to their job) how to wear personal protective equipment correctly, use equipment properly, and safely work with and around chemicals.
- Recognize hazards in the work environment and the tasks they perform.
- Immediately report potential hazards.
- Minimize risks by using appropriate tools and techniques.
- Share lessons learned and best practices to prevent future incidents.
- Recognize and reinforce positive and safe behavior.
TI requires employees to immediately report injuries to their supervisors. Following an investigation, site ESH leaders report corrective action plans so we can distribute appropriate alerts and lessons learned globally.
