If you experience any discomfort beyond expected fatigue, notify your supervisor as soon as possible and request an ergonomic assessment:http://online.corp.ti.com/ergonomics/evaluation.asp. Ergonomics: Avoiding Discomfort • Warning signs: • Your body will give you warning signs whenever you experience physical stress. Pay attention to these warnings and take action to resolve the problem before it gets worse. • Signs include: Decreased range of motion, decreased grip strength, loss of muscle function, painand discomfort. • If early intervention is not taken for signs of pain and discomfort, aMusculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) may result over time. • Musculoskeletal Disorder (MSD) is a disorder (injury/illness) of the muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, joints, cartilage, blood vesselsor spinal discs.
Ergonomics: Fight Fatigue • Manage both physical and mental stress. • Take rest breaks before fatigue sets in: • Vary tasks to use different muscle groups. • When performing long typing tasks, take frequent “microbreaks” lasting several seconds. • Ensure you get sufficient rest while away from work. • Stretch periodically: • Stretching can reduce fatigue and increase your comfort. • Stretching muscles before an activity prepares them for the work at hand. • Get adequate physical exercise: • Physical fitness reduces the risk of injury. TI Ergonomics Web siteTI Live Healthy
Ergonomics: Material Handling • Know your limits: • Ask for help if you feel an item is too heavy. • Request assistance for office and lab moves. • Use carts and assist devices when available. • Plan how you will move any item before lifting it. • Use proper lifting techniques to minimize physical stress: • Stagger your feet for stability. • Bend your knees. • Tighten your abdominal muscles when lifting. • Maintain the natural “S” curvature of your spine when lifting. • Remember to breathe. • Take care when lowering the load. TI Ergonomics Web site
Ergonomics:Computer Setup Set up your computer workstation ergonomically at work and at home to increase your comfort and efficiency while reducing the risk of injury. • Dedicated office computer workstations are adjusted for each employee at most TI sites. • Submit a request for a computer workstation ergonomic assessment at http://online.corp.ti.com/ergonomics/evaluation.asp. • An ergonomics or ESH specialist will assess your workstation and work habits and listen to your concerns. • You will be provided with useful solutions to prevent discomfort and pain. TI Ergonomics Web site
Ergonomics for People on the Go • Cell phone/PDA use: • Limit texting to short messages; use voicemail or a computer for longer messages. • Minimize use of the thumbs; spread the work between the fingers. • Learn shortcuts for your PDA. • Use a headset or earpiece instead of cradling the phone between ear and shoulder. • Take breaks from texting to give your hands a rest. • Notebook computer use: • Use a full-size mouse and external keyboard on a stable surface for long work sessions. • Travel light and don’t overload your computer bag. • Consider using a rolling bag or backpack.

Hazard Communication and Chemical Safety • Each TI employee has the right to know about potential hazards in his/her work environment. TI provides the following resources for all employees: • A written Hazard Communication Program. • Area chemical lists: contact your ESH representative. • Material safety data sheets: http://msds.ti.com. • Chemical container labeling. • Employee training on chemical hazards: LAB201C for Design/Test/Solder Employees. • Know the hazards of the chemicals you work with and the appropriate safety measures to follow to protect yourself. TI wants you to be healthy – practice safe chemical use at work as well as home.
Chemical and Hazardous Materials • Chemicals and hazardous materials may not be purchased and brought into TI until they have been reviewed and approved by ESH using the chemical request form(chemical request, request new chemical). • Exceptions include consumer products like glue, dish soap and marker board cleaner, where they are used the same as you would use them at home. • Once approved, ESH will instruct the requestor how the chemical should be safely used, stored and disposed of, as well as confirming that the material safety data sheet is available online. • To comply with regulations to ensure safety, employers must record and communicate new health or safety concerns. • If you experience any work-related health effects or are aware of an abnormal environmental condition from the use of a chemical, immediately use the TI incident response procedures on slide 8.
Personal Protective Equipment • TI will furnish any necessary PPE and will train each individual who receives it how to: • Select the correct PPE. • Inspect the PPE. • Usethe PPE. • Dispose of thePPE properly. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is designed to protect you from specific types of hazards, but should be used only as a last line of defense. The first choice should be to eliminate the hazard whenever possible. • Safety glasses with hard side shields are required when there is a possibility of flying debris/particles, in chemical areas, when soldering, and in all designated areas posted with a sign. • Gloves are most commonly required when laceration hazards, chemical hazards and temperature hazards are present. • If you think you need a PPE assessment, contact your ESH representative. • LAB201C is required if PPE is required.
Everyday Electrical Safety Don’t take chances around electricity: • Don’t overload circuits or extension cords. • Routinely inspect your cords, plugs and power strips. If you notice damage, take the equipment out of service. Repairs may only be made by a qualified person. • Use extension cords for temporary applications only. • Don’t use electrical tools or equipment in wet locations without a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). • Use only grounded or double-insulated power tools. • Never remove the ground prong from a plug. • Maintain at least a 3-foot (1-meter) clearance in front of all electrical panels. • Don’t remove covers on energized equipment. • Only trained and qualified people, such as electricians, should perform work on energized equipment or systems. Energized work may only be performed as a last option.
Lockout/Tagout Affected Employees Front of tag What you need to know about locks and tags: • Lockout/tagout is used for the purpose of controlling energy sources when work is being conducted. • Never touch a lock or a tag if it does not belong to you! • You may not utilize locks or tags or participate in energy-control work unless you have been trained as an “Authorized Person” under the Control of Hazardous Energy program. Backof tag Lock-out lock
Ladder Safety Portable ladders and step devices are a great tools as long as they are used properly. However, ladder-related injuries still occur every day in the workplace and at home. • Use the correct ladder for the taskand environment. • Inspect ladders before using them. • Ensure that the ladder has firm footing before climbing. • Use ladders safely; don’t stand on the top two steps of a step ladder or climb the backside. • Ladders must be properly stored and cared for per the manufacturer’s instructions. • Watch out for electrical wires and sprinkler heads when handling and setting up ladders.
Slips,Trips and Falls • Footwear • Wear proper footwear for your work environment. • Shoe guidelines for administrative areas follow: • Attaches securely to the foot. • Low heel (2 inches [5 centimeters] max). • Heel with at least a 1-inch (2.5-centimeter) diameter. Slips, trips and falls are a leading cause of injuries. It is imperative to look for and eliminate contributing factors. • Pay attention to your work area: • A fall hazard might at first glance appear to be insignificant, such as a tear in the carpet or uneven floor surfaces. • If you encounter a spill in an administrative area: • Clean it up or request cleaning services assistance. • Block off the area if you have to leave to seek supplies or help. • Use safe practices on stairs: use handrails, don’t run or skip steps, and don’t read or dial phones on stairs.
Housekeeping and 5S A clean work area is a safe work area. Always keep your work area clean and organized. 5S is a tool for establishing a foundation of operational excellence. Below is a picture of an office where action is needed to improve safety, quality and productivity. 5S Sort Set Shine Standardize Sustain Stacked material could fall Protruding scissors “A place foreverything and everything in its place” Material on floor (tripping hazard) Space heater by paper (fire hazard) TI Worldwide Facilities 5S Web site
Fire Prevention • Fire prevention is never-ending and requires constant attention. • Preventing fires is as simple as ensuring that fuel, heat sources and oxygen are never allowed to mix. • Be aware of potential hazards in the work area and eliminate them: • Maintain good housekeeping. • Lit candles are not permitted. • Personal appliance (e.g., coffeepot, heater) use is discouraged. • Use extension cords for temporary applications only. • Be alert for electrical hazards such as frayed cords and exposed wires. • Never lock an exit or block an exit path. Even short-term storage of materials is not allowed. • Report potential fire hazards immediately. Chair blocking exit door
Emergency Preparedness Overview TI maintains a written emergency preparedness program that includes an evacuation and fire safety plan. For some leased buildings, TI occupants follow the landlord’s or primary occupant’s emergency plan. • Be familiar with the emergency exit plan and at least two exit routes. • Evacuation: • Some locations, such as manufacturing buildings, use a roster system to account for people. • Other locations (most non-manufacturing buildings) use a sweep and muster process that involves having volunteers sweep occupied areas and ensure that building zones are emptied. • In all cases of evacuation: • Use the nearest exit. • Gather at the designated meeting point away from the building. • Alert the muster captain or emergency services if you believe anyone is left inside. Contact your ESH representative to learn more or to volunteer.
Evacuation Routes • Evacuation routes provide a safe exit pathway from interior to exterior areas. • Evacuation routes are marked by exit signs. Aisles, hallways, fire doors and stairwells must be kept clear and unobstructed at all times. • Most buildings have multiple evacuation routes. Be familiar with multiple paths. Evacuation maps are located by interior exit doors, stairwells and elevator lobbies. • Maps depict evacuation routes to emergency exit doors and, in some cases, interior assembly areas used for shelter from exterior emergencies such as tornados. Fire doors: Specially tested doors that are normally open but close upon fire alarm system activation.
Alarm Systems and Fire Devices Most buildings are equipped with one or more types of fire detection and warning systems. • Depending on the system, there are various means by which visual (strobes) or audible alarms may be activated. • Fire extinguishers are located in all common spaces and near the stairwells. • Exit signs should be visible from any common space or hallway. Follow the direction in which the arrow is pointing or head toward the location of the sign. Fire alarm/ strobe Smoke detector Fire pull Exit sign
FIRE DOOR FIRE DOOR 200 feet/60 meters Assembly/Muster Areas Listen to the notification system message. • The voice notification message will give you specific directions to follow. • Exit the building calmly through the established evacuation route. Once you reach the exit door, go out of the building to the nearest muster/assembly area. Designated assembly areas will be located a safe distance (approximately >200 feet or 60 meters) from the building. At sites using the roster method, you must check in at the muster area. • Stay at your assembly area until the “all clear” signal has been given by the evacuation coordinator, area coordinator or local police/fire department.
