Mattson Technology's strong beliefs about the environment and health & safety are expressed in
our policies. We have taken these beliefs and turned them into actions by integrating both our
environmental management system and our occupational health & safety management system into
our culture. Mattson Technology is certified to comply with the stringent requirements of the
environmental standard and the
occupational health & safety standard.
Additionally, Mattson Technology is the only semiconductor capital equipment manufacturer to have
been recognized by the state of California as a
site in Cal/OSHA's voluntary protection program.
The Star site status is the highest status awarded to companies that have implemented safety and
health programs that go beyond minimal Cal/OSHA standards to prevent and control occupational hazards.
After exceeding most of the aggressive environmental
objectives we set in 2013, we are focused on
maintaining these levels as we increase factory output in 2014. Our environmental objectives
for 2014 include maintaining our current energy consumption levels (electricity and natural
gas), maintaining the levels of materials that we recycle and divert to landfills and reducing
the quantity of water that our Fremont facility consumes. Additionally, in 2014 we will track
our greenhouse gas emissions to establish a baseline from which we may target future improvements.
As always, our health & safety goal is to send all of our employees home safe and healthy
each and every day.
