NXP® is committed to providing a workplace that is safe and secure, where every employee is empowered to achieve a healthy work-life balance. Our goal is to create a workplace that is healthy, safe, and free of occupational injury and illness for all employees. NXP employees are aware of their role and responsibility to fulfill and sustain NXP health and safety policies, management systems and standards, and are actively involved in promoting a safety culture.
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. Each site has their own challenges, although with challenges come opportunities.
In 2017, we addressed some of these opportunities with more formal engagements with employees through safety committees, setting strategies as well as investigating incidents. In addition, more awareness through safety posters can now be seen at each factory providing guidance on what is right vs. wrong. Blogs and newsletters were communicated across NXP to raise awareness of many safety topics. An ergonomics task force was established to collaborate and share best practices across all factories. A new risk assessment tool was created to help those employees performing a new task assess the job in a safe manner. We designed and installed equipment to rigid specifications to ensure employee safety. We implemented stretching programs, oversaw physical therapy consultations, and provided alternate health therapy options. Additional projects such as optimizing the shelf heights at the factories is another example of how NXP is always searching for the best way to protect our employees.
We strive to create a workplace that is healthy, safe and free of occupational injury for all employees.
