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 on or near the premises of some Baxter locations, and promoting balanced nutrition. The company also is working toward a smoke-free environment at all of its locations.
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; and
- Warehousing and distribution.
Recent trends in Baxter’s operations include increasing facility process automation, facility expansions, and a growing remote workforce. These present distinct workplace hazards and improvement opportunities related to safety.
