Environmental Health & Safety

We perform, sustainably

It’s every business’s responsibility to contribute to building a sustainable future. We’re no exception.

Here at Lam, we commit to the sustainable management of environmental, health, and safety (EHS) concerns while ensuring compliance with applicable government standards and regulations. By aligning ourselves to these factors, we’re able to provide productive and responsible solutions across all aspects of business, like product design and services.

Our commitments

Global Quality

Here’s how we hold ourselves accountable to produce while upholding quality.

  • View quality from our customer’s perspective
  • Design quality into our products, services, and business processes with regular accountability reviews
  • Respond with agility when non-conformances are discovered to eliminate the risk and prevent recurrence
  • Continuously develop and improve skills, business processes, product quality, technology, service, delivery, and overall value

We meet these commitments with rigor and integrity, through clearly documented quality objectives, and robust management reviews.

Global EHS policy

Lam Personnel and Operations – We will protect the environment, health, and safety of all Lam personnel and minimize our EHS risk through prevention of illness, injury, and environmental impact. All Lam personnel shall be involved in furthering this objective.

Solutions for Customers and Suppliers – EHS concerns are integral to our processes, services, and product designs, including responsible management throughout our products’ lifecycles. We educate customers, suppliers, and the public about the safe use of our products and openly communicate the protective measures we take for employees, our communities, and other key stakeholders.

Accountability – We utilize the EHS Management System to apply global standards, including compliance with applicable laws and regulations and other standards to which we subscribe. Our executives and managers are measured and held accountable for the safety and environmental performance of the business. We hold every employee accountable for his or her role in meeting our commitment.

Stakeholder Involvement – We work with stakeholders in the development of the laws, regulations, and standards that safeguard the community, workplace, and environment. As a responsible corporate citizen, we demonstrate this commitment by working within our communities and actively pursuing independent certifications and recognition, as appropriate.

Continuous Improvement – We address occupational injuries and illnesses, emissions, wastes and inefficient use of resources and energy as preventable process defects. We continuously improve our EHS Management System and work collaboratively with suppliers and customers to deliver solutions that meet business and EHS objectives.

Since 2003, Lam Research has been registered to the international environmental management system standard, ISO 14001. We are also a charter member of SEMI® Global Care and maintain reports of EHS performance, which are made available upon request.
