Ensuring Safety for Customers
Providing Information to Customers
Tokyo Electron is committed to providing sufficient safety information on its products so that customers can safely use them.
All products purchased by customers come with a TEL Safety and Environmental Guidelines manual. The manual describes examples of potential risks associated with using our products together with the methods for averting those risks, as well as safety measures applied to products and recommended methods for product disposal. It is divided into such categories as chemical, electrical, mechanical and ergonomic, and is available in 12 languages* to ensure that customers around the world can understand the content accurately.
In addition to this manual, customers are also provided product-specific manuals tailored to the relevant product specifications.
If new safety warnings are identified after the product ships, we promptly report to the affected customers. In addition, we also strive to ensure that necessary information is communicated, particularly for customers to whom we deliver products that involve the use of hazardous chemicals or high-voltage electricity
TEL Safety and Environmental Guidelines
12 languages: Japanese, English, German, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Portuguese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese and Finnish
Global Expansion of Training for Customers
We establish training centers all over the world, mainly at our development and production sites, and provide customers with training on equipment operation and maintenance so that products can be used safely. In fiscal year 2022, demand for web-based training (WBT) and remote training* increased as a result of continuing difficulty in holding equipment training on-site because of COVID-19. Under such a situation, we provide remote training for much of our equipment and strive to further enhance training content, such as by filming footage from easy-to-see angles beforehand and using some of them as video content. In addition, we are working to improve the content and quality of not only remote training but also WBT by sharing the equipment and methods we introduced with each training center.
Furthermore, taking into consideration the difficulty in overseas travel, we are also expanding our equipment lineup at the training centers of our overseas companies.
Going forward, we will continue to give priority to customer safety as we promote further development of our training environment.
Remote training: A training course, although remote, where trainees interact with the instructor in real time while viewing actual equipment through their monitors
