NXP is committed to providing a workplace that is healthy, safe, and free of occupational injury and illness for all team members. NXP managers and team members are actively involved in promoting our safety-first program.

NXP has one of the lowest injury rates in the semiconductor industry. While this accomplishment is something we are very proud of, there is still more that can be done.



We are committed to a culture that fosters a healthy and productive workforce. Health and wellness encompass physical and emotional health, social support and spiritual wellness.

Health Programs


All our manufacturing sites employ occupational-health specialists, and most have onsite clinics. Most of our non-manufacturing sites employ occupational-health specialists as well. We contract doctors at certain locations for job-related medical services for our team members. We offer comprehensive health-insurance plans and many of our sites organize annual physicals and preventive health screenings, including flu shots.


Several of our global sites offer subsidized gym-membership plans, access to fitness classes, and/or onsite fitness facilities. In addition to physical fitness, we offer programs and guidance on nutrition, weight loss and avoiding unhealthy habits, such as smoking, drinking and drug use.


Team members are offered resources and assistance programs to find and/or consult with specialists for mental well-being and help in dealing with major life events.


Safety experts supervise protective measures and create safe and ergonomically friendly workplaces, including areas of production, other technical areas and office workplaces.

Our proactive safety initiatives include the following:

  • Team members trained regularly on emergency response
  • Safety committees/councils include non-management team members
  • Multiple grievance mechanisms in place for directly or anonymously raising safety concerns to management
  • Safety walkthroughs performed by trained managers
  • Monthly meetings with global Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) leadership
  • Discussions held regarding any accidents or incidents, including first aid, near misses and high-potential incidents
  • Prevention measures and safety practices adapted to different situations


Key health and safety principles are embedded in our Corporate Sustainability Policy, a document signed and approved by our CEO. The Sustainability Policy is developed and deployed by the Sustainability Management team.

  • Job and site specific training
  • On the job training
  • Chemical handling
  • Chemical management and safety
  • Emergency response
  • Ergonomics
  • Other safety related topics


In 2021, there were no incidents that resulted in fines or sanctions in connection with non-compliance of health and safety laws or regulations. There were no fatal work-related accidents for our workers or contractors.

Injury by Category


The Sustainability Office validates the information entered in the Health and Safety database. Validation consists of the following steps:

  • Check for completeness of data (locations and parameters)
  • Compare data from the reporting period with data from previous periods
  • Determine whether changes in data are significant
  • Seek explanations for significant data changes
  • Compare related data (e.g. number of illnesses and injuries versus lost workdays)
  • Investigate notable events

The EHS teams at each factory meet weekly with the senior management to review performance results, the progress of improvement projects and expectations for each project milestone.

To ensure reliable and accurate reporting, we conduct internal audits of our factories, large offices and R&D sites, checking for proper reporting procedures and data trails.

We want to hear from you!
