We are committed to maintaining an EHS culture that fosters a healthy and productive work environment. "Health" encompasses medical and physical well-being, as well as emotional and mental 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 preventative 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 source and/or consult with specialists for mental well-being and help in dealing with major life events. In addition, our Human Resources team members are available to help address other workplace concerns. NXP also offers a variety of internal and external online resources addressing various life events.


All our manufacturing sites have Health and Safety experts who specialize in supervising protective measures and creating safe and ergonomically friendly workplaces. All areas of the workplace are incorporated, including areas of production, offices, labs and other technical areas.

Our proactive safety initiatives include:

  • Employee Emergency Response Teams that perform regular training and drills
  • Active participation of non-management team members in site-level safety committees/councils
  • Multiple grievance mechanisms available to team members that enable anyone to report safety concerns directly or anonymously to management
  • 'Stop-work' authority, which lets any team member intervene when they believe an activity or a behavior may pose an imminent danger
  • Unannounced safety walkthroughs, performed by trained managers, to identify potential issues and recognize positive actions that contribute to our EHS culture
  • Incident analysis, including near-misses, first aid and high-potential events to identify opportunities for improvement
  • Prevention measures and safety practices adapted to suit different situations


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

EHS Management Board

The governance of Health and Safety lies within the EHS Management Board, which consists of executives and senior leaders who define the development, approval, purpose, value, strategies, policies and goals, along with the metrics used to gauge the success of each plan.

EHS Leadership Team

Corporate EHS and the Global EHS Leadership Team collectively establish risk-mitigation strategies and develop and deploy standards, programs and procedures to reduce risks to health and safety worldwide.


Company-wide, NXP trains our team members to ensure they are equipped with the skills and knowledge to perform their functions safely. This includes:

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


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

  • Check for completeness of data (sites 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 manufacturing site meet weekly with the senior manufacturing management to review performance, the progress of improvement projects and expectations for each project milestone.

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


In 2022, there were no incidents that resulted in fines or sanctions in connection with noncompliance of Health and Safety laws or regulations. There were no fatal work-related accidents for our workers or contractors.
