Environmental, Health & Safety Policy & Programs

Environmental, Health and Safety Objectives

  • To operate our processes with minimum environmental impact and occupational health and safety hazards by adopting best available technologies, compliance of relevant legislation and highest standard of safe practices.
  • To continue to evaluate, review and improve our performance in environment, health and safety practices.
  • To implement comprehensive programs to prevent potential occupational risk and reduce negative impact to the environment.

STATS ChipPAC's Long Term Environmental, Health and Safety Goals

10 year goal from 2009 to 2018:
  • Reduce energy consumption / CO2 emission per unit by 30% using 2008 as baseline
  • Re-use / recycle >20% of water purchased
  • Recycle >70% of hazardous and non-hazardous waste generated
  • Achieve world-class safety performance in terms of accident frequency and severity rate lower than industry benchmark
    >   2010 Electronic Product Benchmark (Source:  Ministry of Manpower, Singapore) per million man-hours worked:
              - Accident frequency rate (FR) = 0.7
              - Accident severity rate (SR) = 10

Key EHS Programs and Achievements in 2014

In 2014, STATS ChipPAC implemented key environmental, health and safety programs and initiatives.

Achieved 11.4% Scope 1 & 2 energy reduction (equivalent to 10.3% reduction in CO2 emissions [tonnes] / K-units) compared to 2008 baseline through Energy Conservation Programs (2014 Goal: 20% reduction)
  • Heat recovery from compressors and chillers
  • Set up new big capacity for hot DI system and main cooling rower VSD installation
  • CDA and N2 usage optimization
  • Steam source change from oil to LNG
  • Fluorescent lamp brightness optimization and replacement of T8 to LED lights
  • Power saving during peak time and temperature optimization
  • Chiller and compressor maintenance/overhaul
  • Managed manufacturing equipment to high utilization with cold and warm shutdowns

Achieved 24% water reduction/recycling through Water Conservation Programs (2014 Goal: 25% reduction/recycling)
  • Continue to monitor and manage water used for equipment and re-use water from backgrinding, singulation and RO system

Achieved 78% waste recycling through Waste Recycling Programs (2014 Goal: 75% recycling)
  • Solid waste management training
  • Use of waste recycling system
  • Promoted and adopted '3Rs' policy

Achieved 0.6 Accident Frequency Rate (FR) and 1.9 Accident Severity Rate (SR) through Safety Programs (2014 Goal: 0.7 Frequency Rate; 10 Severity Rate)
  • Safety audit and training on fire extinguisher operation, chemical and hazardous substance management, fire prevention and control, PPE, emergency medical services
  • Chemical spillage drill
  • Occupational building hazardous monitor
  • Emergency Preparedness and Response Program

EICC Awareness Training
  • All employees are required to complete EICC awareness training; this resulted in more than 3200 training hours
