Occupational health and safety

TDK Electronics attaches great importance to health and safety at the workplace. The company ensures strict compliance with all relevant laws and regulations at all times, and also applies internal rules based on an ISO 45001-compliant occupational health and safety management system. Within the framework of this system, workplaces are evaluated in order to identify hazards, guard against accidents and minimize risks. Risk factors include mechanical and electrical hazards, hazardous substances, fires and physical and/or psychological stresses. Consistent occupational health and safety rules and regulations also apply to all our production facilities. Compliance is monitored and ensured on site by designated occupational health and safety officers.

Beyond these measures, TDK Electronics encourages its staff to proactively protect their own safety and that of others. To this end, employees are taught to understand and comply with occupational health and safety rules, to report incidents, accidents and “near misses”, to attend all necessary training courses and to personally commit themselves to a safe and healthy working environment.

Central tenets of TDK Electronics’ environmental protection, energy and occupational health and safety policy

  1. We work continuously toward reducing the burden on the environment, toward minimizing associated risks and toward lowering the use of energy and resources, above and beyond the legal requirements.
  2. We take appropriate precautions to avoid environmental hazards and to prevent damage to the environment.
  3. Potential impact on the environment is assessed and incorporated in process and product planning at the earliest possible stage from a life cycle perspective.
  4. By applying environmental, energy and occupational health and safety (OH&S) management, we ensure that this policy is implemented effectively. The technical and organizational procedures required to do this are monitored regularly and constantly further developed. We strive for continual improvement of our management systems by establishing objectives to improve the environmental, energy and OH&S performance.
  5. Every employee is required to act in an environmental conscious manner and to regard the rules of labor safety. It is the constant duty of management to increase and encourage awareness of responsibility for environment, energy consumption and occupational health and safety at all levels.
  6. We work with our business partners to promote conformity with similar objectives. We supply our stakeholders with information on ways to minimize any potentially adverse impacts of our products to the environment or occupational health and safety.
  7. We work in a spirit of cooperation with the relevant authorities.
  8. We inform the public of the impact on the environment caused by the company and our activities related to the environment and occupational health and safety.
  9. We consider ensuring a safe, healthy and comfortable work environment as first priority to avoid work-related injury and ill health. We comply with all applicable legal requirements and with all requirements that relate to OH&S risks.
  10. We take preventive measures to reduce risks for our employees and eliminate hazards. We involve our employees in OH&S-related processes.
  11. We support the purchase of renewable energy and of energy efficient products, machines and services that improve our energy-related performance.
