SESHA 2012 Symposium Abstract

Understanding and Managing the Universe of EHS Risks of PV Manufacturing: Approaches to Prioritize Impact

Baliga, Sanjay
(SEMI)

For the PV industry to live up to its commitment of responsibly producing clean solar energy, environment, health and safety (EHS) risks need to be better understood and managed. Hundreds of well-known specific EHS hazards have been inventoried in PV manufacture. The presentation will detail some of these hazards broken down by broad category, including, but not limited to chemical hazards, physical hazards, facilities hazards, electrical hazards, and product hazards. Best know methods to manage these hazards will also be addressed, as well as approaches to prioritize the business value impacts of these hazards.
