Processes and Related Hazards
Semiconductor manufacturing includes four main operations: (1) substrate manufacture, (2) device fabrication, (3) metallization, and (4) non-fabrication processing. The links below provide additional information on the various processes, related hazards, and controls for each of these operations. Where appropriate, additional links are provided to various topics contained in the OSHA Safety and Health Topics website. Information on this page is general; actual processes will vary with each production facility. A complete hazard inventory should be based on a hazard analysis of the actual process in question.
