National Semiconductor’s Arlington, Texas Facility Surpasses Two Million Working Hours Without Lost-Time Injury

Sep 12, 2007

Sept. 12, 2007 – National Semiconductor Corporation’s (NYSE:NSM) Arlington, Texas manufacturing facility has surpassed two million working hours without a lost time injury.  To achieve two million hours, Arlington's employees and contractors worked without experiencing a lost time injury for two years.

This safety milestone is the latest in a series of the site’s safety accomplishments over the past several years.  For example, National’s Arlington facility was awarded the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) STAR Award in 2005.  Less than 0.0002 percent of U.S. corporations have earned this distinction.  The site has also received numerous safety awards from the National Safety Council as well as ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Certifications, two key international safety and environmental standards. 

"Achieving two million hours without a lost time injury is a significant milestone and reflects the commitment of every employee in our plant," said John Conn, vice president and managing director of National’s Arlington manufacturing facility. 

The facility, located at 1111 West Bardin Road, manufactures high-performance, energy-efficient analog integrated circuits that extend battery life in cell phones as well as provide fidelity audio and vibrant displays in numerous electronic systems.  The company currently employs about 500 people in Arlington.
