“While concrete progress in all aspects of EH&S has been made, we continue to strive for health and safety excellence and the conservation of the earth's natural resources through sustainable business practices. Regular reviews of our global operational policies and standards support this commitment to continuous improvement.”

-Tom Sipher, Vice President, Safety, Health, & Environment

 

The Technicolor EH&S Charter governing health, safety and environmental matters affirms our commitment to conduct business in a safe and responsible manner and to protect employees in their daily work. An effective occupational health and safety program, as defined by Technicolor, looks beyond specific requirements of law to address all hazards.

Translated into six languages, the EH&S Charter is available on the Group’s Intranet, and is displayed at each industrial site.

Managing Health & Safety

Our health and safety programs aim to identify potential risks and take appropriate prevention and risk reduction measures. Accident and injury prevention programs focus on local, site-specific health and safety work groups.

Work group members help ensure workplace safety by periodic assessment, improvement of written programs and procedures, revisions in machines or materials, and training. They also help prevent mishaps stemming from potential physical, chemical, biological and ergonomic risks through inspections and audits, systematic analysis of accidents and incidents, and implementation of corrective measures as needed.

Corporate EH&S policies and guidelines establish requirements and provide guidance for working safely. They are periodically revised, and augmented when deemed necessary (recent improvements clarified First Aid or Working Alone guidance). At local sites, programs and initiatives have been implemented to ensure that Technicolor meets its legal responsibilities and operates in a responsible manner by identifying risks and taking action to eliminate or at least minimize health and safety hazards.

 

Training People to Enhance Safety

Technicolor understands that, because each employee can impact EH&S efforts and performance, it is critical that each employee be provided with appropriate tools, resources and knowledge.

EH&S training programs develop awareness and skills that enable employees and contractors to perform their jobs in compliance with applicable laws, regulations and policies and to prevent accidents and reduce risks.

Training programs are evaluated during the corporate EH&S audit process, and are a core ingredient in the EH&S performance measurement process.

 

Assessing Health & Safety Performance and Progress

Launched more than a decade ago, the Technicolor Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) corporate audit program helps ensure that industrial locations comply with corporate EH&S policies and guidelines as well as applicable EH&S laws and regulations.

The audit program has proved a valuable tool for increasing EH&S awareness throughout the organization, identifying best practices, sharing successful initiatives, creating opportunities for diverse approaches to problem solving, and connecting our EH&S personnel to broader aspects of our multi-faceted business.

As a result of these audits, potential improvement items are identified and evaluated, and more importantly, appropriate action plans are developed.
