Future Electronics works to identify and assess all potential health and safety hazards, including chemical, electrical and other energy sources, fire, vehicles, and fall hazards, and to mitigate them by eliminating the hazard, substituting processes or materials, controlling through proper design, implementing engineering and administrative controls, preventative maintenance and safe work procedures, and providing ongoing occupational health and safety training.
Where hazards cannot be adequately controlled by these means, Future Electronics provides employees with appropriate and well-maintained personal protective equipment, and educational materials about the risks associated with these hazards.
Future Electronics takes steps to remove pregnant women and nursing mothers from working conditions with higher hazards, to remove or reduce any workplace health and safety risks to pregnant women and nursing mothers, including those associated with their work assignments, and to provide reasonable accommodations for nursing mothers.
Future Electronics maintains robust processes to identify potential adverse events that could impact our employees and operation. The emergency preparedness and response processes minimize harm to life, environment, and property.
Future Electronics facilities worldwide periodically test these processes to assure they are effective and performing as intended. The tests are reviewed, and actions taken when required.
Occupational Injury and Illness
Future Electronics maintains procedures and systems to prevent, manage, track and report occupational injury and illness, including provisions to encourage employee reporting, classify and record injury and illness cases, provide necessary medical treatment, investigate cases and implement corrective actions to eliminate their causes, and facilitate the return of employees to work.
Future Electronics works to identify, evaluate, and control employees’ exposure to any chemical, biological, and physical agents. When any potential hazards are identified, Future Electronics works to eliminate or reduce the potential hazards. When necessary, employees are provided with appropriate and well-maintained personal protective equipment free of charge. Future Electronics maintains ongoing protective programs which include educational materials about the risks associated with these hazards.
Physically Demanding Work
Future Electronics identifies, evaluates, and controls employee exposure to the hazards of physically demanding tasks, including manual material handling and heavy or repetitive lifting, prolonged standing, and highly repetitive or forceful assembly tasks.
Future Electronics regularly evaluates machinery for safety hazards. Physical guards, interlocks, and barriers are provided and properly maintained where machinery could present an injury hazard to employees.
Sanitation, Food and Housing
Future Electronics provides employees with ready access to clean toilet facilities, potable water and sanitary food preparation, storage, and eating facilities. Housing provided by Future Electronics is maintained to be clean and safe, and provided with appropriate emergency egress, hot water for bathing and showering, adequate lighting and heat and ventilation, individually secured accommodations for storing personal and valuable items, and reasonable personal space along with reasonable entry and exit privileges.
Health and Safety Communication
Future Electronics provides employees with appropriate workplace health and safety information and training in a language they can understand for all identified workplace hazards. Health and safety related information is clearly posted in the facility or placed in a location identifiable and accessible to employees. Training is provided to all employees prior to the beginning of work and regularly thereafter. Employees are encouraged to raise any health and safety concerns without fear of retaliation.
