Health and Safety
Complementing its mission to save and sustain the lives of patients worldwide, Baxter works to ensure the health, safety and well-being of its employees. At Baxter, all employees are accountable for safety.
The company encourages employee health and wellness in and out of the workplace, such as by providing free influenza immunizations, subsidizing access to exercise facilities near or on the premises of some Baxter locations, and promoting balanced nutrition. Baxter also is working toward a smoke-free environment at all of its campuses.
Baxter conducts business worldwide, with more than half of its employees working outside the United States. The company’s operations consist of the following work environments:
- Administrative and sales offices;
- Plasma-donor centers;
- Research and development;
- Renal-therapy centers;
- Pharmacy compounding centers;
- Warehousing and distribution; and
- Mobile sales force.
Recent trends in Baxter’s operations include increasing automation, facility expansions (especially in Asia Pacific), and a growing remote workforce. These present distinct workplace hazards and opportunities for improvements related to safety.
