Electronic Systems Inc. was recognized for superior performance in workplace safety and health at the Governor's Workplace Safety Awards luncheon on October 4 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. At the luncheon, ESI accepted an award for Meritorious Achievement on behalf of its associates.

"This award is a direct reflection of ESI's continued commitment to workplace safety made possible by our associates through the efforts they put in each day to ensure a safe work environment for all," stated Greg Adams, Manufacturing Manager.

"Employers like ESI know that safety isn’t automatic," said Cary Swenson, Executive Director of the South Dakota Safety Council. "It takes attention, dedication and continuous effort to protect their employees."

Sponsored by the South Dakota Safety Council, the Governor’s Workplace Safety Award is given to companies in the State of South Dakota based upon specific criteria for DART rate, Incidence rate, and a comprehensive Safety Program Evaluation Scorecard. Companies whose incidence rates are better than the industry average for at least three years, and who score between 50 and 74 on a 100-point safety program evaluation scale are recognized for Meritorious Achievement.

The Governor's Safety Awards luncheon was part of the 25th annual South Dakota Safety & Health Conference, coordinated by the South Dakota Safety Council. The conference is the largest gathering of workplace safety and health professionals in the region. The South Dakota Safety Council, founded in 1949, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in South Dakota by preventing unintentional injuries (“accidents”).

Using Lead-Free BGAs in a Tin/Lead Soldering Process

07/20/2017 | David Hillman, Rockwell Collins
Several electronic market segments, such as those electronics used in harsh environments or that have life/system critical functionality, remain exempt from lead-free material restrictions such as the RoHS legislation. While these market segments can use solder containing lead, it is increasingly difficult to procure advanced components in non-ROHS compliant configurations. This article discusses several aspects of having lead-free BGA components in a tin/lead soldering process.
