Significant environmental, health and safety (EHS) aspects

Agilent's activities can have positive and negative impacts on the environment and on occupational health and safety. In our EHSMS, activities that can interact with the environment or health and safety to create impacts are called aspects.

Each year, we review our activities to identify aspects of our operations and products that may have significant EHS impacts. This review contributes to the development of EHS-related objectives and targets for the coming year.

When developing the objectives and targets, the significant aspects are considered alongside the available technological options, our financial, operational and business requirements and the views of interested parties.

The process of identifying and maintaining a current list of significant EHS aspects provides Agilent with a framework for understanding the important EHS issues and for making management decisions.

Agilent's significant company-wide EHS aspects for 2004 fiscal year are:

  • Chemical use, storage and handling
  • Contractor activities
  • Energy use
  • Force, frequency and posture (ergonomics)
  • Materials selection
  • Materials use
  • Solid waste generation.

Agilent's significant company-wide EHS aspects for 2003 fiscal year were:

  • Air emissions
  • Chemical management
  • Contractor management
  • Driving hazards
  • Electrical hazards
  • Energy use
  • Ergonomics
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Materials selection
  • Materials use
  • Mechanical hazards
  • Solid waste generation
  • Walking surfaces
  • Wastewater generation
  • Water use
  • Work at non-Agilent sites.

With programs in place to address the 2003 significant aspects, the list was reduced for 2004 in order to focus attention on those aspects considered most significant for Agilent sites globally. It is important to note that we have controls in place to manage risks in these areas.

Agilent Semiconductor Products Group Labs in Singapore have implemented a Safety Management System in order to meet the requirements of both Singapore's Ministry of Manpower and the National Environment Agency, the government agencies that regulate EHS issues. Both sites underwent audits this year and passed without any major issues.
