  • Managing the R2 focus materials (FMs) that pass through our facility or control in a manner protective of the environment, workers’ health and safety, and public health while complying with all relevant regulations of countries importing equipment, components, or materials containing FMs
  • Protecting the environment, preventing pollution, implementing proper procedures, and responding immediately to emergencies to minimize any adverse impacts
  • Identifying and reducing the risks of all types of work activities that have the potential to cause personal injury or occupational illness
  • Providing training and supervision to improve all employees’ understanding of workplace hazards, including safe work practices, emergency procedures, along with key environmental impacts and responsibilities of their work
  • Ensuring that everyone (including visitors and contractors) complies with appropriate standards and workplace directions to protect everyone’s health and safety as well as our environment
  • Providing the framework to achieve environmental, safety and data objectives
  • Committing to continual improvement of the EHS management system
