    Employee Health, Safety and Welfare

    Teradyne is committed to protecting the environment and controlling environmental, health and safety risks through the implementation of our Environmental and Safety Management Systems (ESMS). Our Environmental System is registered to the international management system standard ISO 14001 for our Corporate Headquarters located in North Reading, Massachusetts and our larger facilities located in Kumamoto, Japan and Costa Rica. A key element of our system is “verifying” performance. We conduct internal compliance audits of our facilities and major operations are audited routinely.

    The Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) group at Teradyne uses various self-assessment tools to regularly evaluate the status of our programs.

    EHS Training
    Teradyne is committed in ensuring workers are provided with the knowledge to perform their jobs safely. We provide:

    • Consistent training programs worldwide
    • Quality in content and delivery
    • Innovative and efficient delivery methods and options
    • Support of new business initiatives such as external EHS training

    All employees receive basic Environmental, Health and Safety awareness training which covers a variety of topics applicable to anyone working at our facilities. Our operations and engineering employees may also take additional courses related to their job function. In addition, contractors coming on site are required to go through Teradyne Contractor Safety Training prior to doing work at any Teradyne site. 

    Ergonomics Program
    Similar to other companies, Teradyne monitors and tracks common safety metrics such as accidents and injuries. However, we strive to do more; we want a workplace that works for our employees. As employees spend more and more time at work it is increasingly important to provide them with workplaces that are both flexible and adjustable. This includes looking at ergonomics issues in the workplace, educating employees to self-identify risks and ensuring they have the setup they need to do their jobs effectively.

    Teradyne Environmental Policy

    We conduct process design, assembly, marketing, repair and servicing of test equipment from new product conception through mature production.

    We recognize that business activities impact the environment. Teradyne is committed to managing activities that could potentially impact the environment in a responsible and effective manner.  
    We continually strive to improve our environmental performance, consistent with other business objectives, and regularly set documented objectives, and target and monitor progress in achieving them.

    In working towards minimizing environmental impacts associated with our activities, we:

    • at a minimum, seek to comply with applicable environmental regulations and standards.
    • support pollution prevention and minimization programs.
    • use materials and energy efficiently to conserve natural resources.
    • work to minimize, where feasible, emissions that contribute to climate change.
    • review environmental objectives and monitor performance.

    This policy is communicated to all employees and to those working on behalf of Teradyne and is made available to the public.

    Energy Management and Greenhouse Gases

    Teradyne continuously monitors risks and opportunity factors in the field of sustainability management, such as global policies and regulation trends that impact the business environment.  Part of this involves reducing our climate footprint. We continually assess the environmental impact of our operations. Primary areas of focus have been to reduce consumption of electricity, gas and water and to explore sustainability energy opportunities. Read more about our efforts to reduce our environmental footprint.

    Global Compliance Policies

    Environmental and Safety Management (ISO 14001)

    Teradyne has had a dedicated Environmental and Safety Management System (ESMS) since the early 1990s. This system has expanded over the years and contributed to our ability to easily transition to ISO 14001 certification at our U.S. headquarters in North Reading, Massachusetts as well as our facilities in Heredia, Costa Rica and Kumamoto, Japan. We maintain a documented ESMS at all of our offices. Our  ISO 14001 system serves as the framework for our sustainability initiatives.
