Health and Safety

We utilize an Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) system that is customized to each production location based on local conditions. Three of our production locations have been certified to ISO 45001 and eight production locations have been certified to ISO 14001. Novanta manufacturing sites have EH&S representatives, who are charged with the responsibility of maintaining the Company’s EH&S standards. The EH&S program is responsible for carrying out regular health and safety risk assessments, addressing any incidents that occur, and making process improvements to reduce hazards. In 2022, we formed a global EH&S council with representatives from various business units to share best practices, knowledge, and management tools.


NovantaWELL, our global health and wellness resource center on our intranet site, provides a central information hub for all employees, with country-specific information on physical and mental health, as well as financial wellness. The portal offers education, such as tips on stress management, employee assistance programs, tools for mindfulness reminders, and coaching on subjects like exercise routines and nutrition. It also provides the latest guidance on salient health topics like COVID-19 and the flu.

Through NovantaWELL, to support our employees through the ongoing challenges caused by the pandemic, we conducted anonymous surveys and solicited employee feedback from Novanta locations in the U.S., Germany, and the Czech Republic in 2021 and 2022 to help provide suggestions to senior leadership on measures to reduce stress and enhance mental health.
