SEMA setting safety standard

31 May 2019

SEMA, the Storage Equipment Manufacturers’ Association says it will be setting the storage safety standard at IMHX 2019.

For more than 50 years, SEMA has forged its reputation for excellence to become a lead voice on safe storage practice. Working with statutory authorities, over 165 SEMA member businesses, together with committees and training initiatives, combine their knowledge, skill and expertise as the British Trade Association of the Storage Equipment Industry.

SEMA is committed to promoting and extending the safe design, installation and use of storage equipment manufactured and supplied by its members. Its manufacturers and associates rank among the very best in the world. SEMA distributors and installation companies are independently QA audited three-yearly. 

Rack inspection maintenance & training

SEMA’s 120+ Approved Inspectors are highly qualified and undertake rack inspections at end-users’ premises. It says its traffic light system of categorising rack damage has been adopted as the industry standard.

SEMA training for end users is RoSPA approved. The Storage Equipment Installers’ Registration Scheme (SEIRS) is recognised by the CSCS as it meets CLC Partner Card Scheme criteria. Stand C185
