JUNE 2023 I SMT007 MAGAZINE 59 It starts with the focal point of a design that's been created by the Ops team trying to make it a reality, but they're having issues. It could be a yield issue or field failure. Inherently, both are failure issues. Our whole industry is based on improving yields and making things better. Yes, exactly. Tom, do you have any final thoughts around this topic or another you would like to share with the industry? One thought is a recommendation not to get hung up on emotions regarding labels. at's more common these days than in previous years. We should try to do that in many parts of our lives, including cleaning in electron- ics assembly. It's all about the data. When value-added processes make things better, they improve yields and long-term reliability. As we make more sophisticated, higher-vol- ume devices in North America and Western Europe, these cleaning process will be a plus. Data-driven evaluations are always the best approach. When the data says cleaning helps, it can really change the game in a positive way. So, keep an open mind and consider clean- ing as another tool in the toolbox that, when appropriate, can save the day. Thank you. We always appreciate your time and your expertise. You're welcome.

They also function as a technical resource in developing/revising training programs and providing expertise on all SHE-related issues within the oper- ations. They also offer guidance to site team on risk assessment and risk prediction to mitigate risk of task-based activities as well as facilitate safety team meetings, problem solving teams/meetings and EHS planning meetings within the organization. EHS engineers actively contribute to establishing company-wide best practices and standards for EHS and help champion a culture that promote environ- mental health and safety focusing on leading indica- tors that can deliver world class EHS culture. They also entails providing support in the identifi- cation, analysis, and control of occupational hazards requiring the application of engineering knowledge, skill, and abilities. They seek to identify pre-injury trends during audits, verify compliance with estab- lished safety/health procedures, and recommend appropriate actions. After performing audits, EHS engineers are also responsible for a follow-up on suggested corrective actions, and must also use injury exposure and inci- dents as parameters to measure progress toward the attainment of factory safety goals.
