LSI’s commitment to leading edge storage and networking products is equaled by its
commitment to leadership in occupational injury/illness prevention and employee
wellness. LSI is dedicated to continual improvement in our workplace health and
safety, and performance is driven through implementation of our Safety and
Environmental Management System which is third party certified to ISO 14001 and
OHSAS 18001. Key safety and health elements of the management system include risk
assessment, management of change, health and safety training, safety audits, incident
investigation, management involvement and safety communications. Management of these
elements has helped LSI maintain total case rates and lost time cases well below
national averages for our industry. In fact, LSI had zero lost time work cases in
calendar year 2010.
LSI compares its safety and health performance to benchmarks established by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Averaged over the last five years, LSI’s Total
Injury and Illness and Lost Time Case Rates are 60 percent below the BLS first quartile
averages for semiconductor industry employers. LSI’s commitment to proactive EH&S
management systems has helped us outperform our peer companies.
In support of our health and safety objectives, LSI provides both online and classroom
training on a variety of topics including:
- Office Ergonomics
- Chemical Hazard Communication
- Office Safety
- Laboratory Safety
- Radiation Protection
- CPR/First Aid/AED Training/Bloodborne Pathogens
In addition to providing ergonomics tip sheets for all employees, our program includes
individual ergonomic assessments of work stations, one-on-one training, classroom
style training and online training.
LSI maintains a laboratory safety program that includes training in chemical hazards,
compressed gases handling, electrical safety, proper use of fume hoods and fume
hood performance testing, personal protective equipment, emergency procedures, first
aid and waste handling.
emergency response teams are maintained at many of our facilities. Team members
receive regular company-sponsored training in CPR/AED, first aid and bloodborne
pathogens. Some facilities have certified first responders and Emergency Medical
Technicians (EMTs) on their teams.
