SEMI S2 Guidelines were created by the leaders of the SEMI industry to ensure every piece of equipment is compliant to regulatory requirements and is checked against a high standard of safety. The topics range from fire protection, electrical hazard protection, mechanical hazard mitigation, chemical, radiation, noise and ergonomics hazards, ventilation requirements, emergency shutdown procedures, exhaust specifications, hazard warning alerts and labels, documentation requirements and more.
Lewis Bass International has a team of highly qualified engineers and industrial hygienist partners to provide comprehensive, single-source SEMI S2 and S8 assessment to the latest version of the guidelines.
A SEMI S2 evaluation is normally a requirement of the buyer as a safeguard and can often be a condition of sale.
Lewis Bass team members are highly experienced in electrical/mechanical safety, chemical exposure assessments, ventilation, noise, ionizing radiation, non-ionizing radiation, lasers, environmental impact assessments, and other areas of expertise required by the SEMI S2 Guidelines as shown below:
Note: Although Tracer Gas and voltage sag sensitivity are not categorized, they are part of S2 and required for applicable equipment
SEMI S8 Ergonomics Guidelines are designed to enhance worker safety and productivity and minimizes repetitive motion-related injuries, as well as ensures safe maintenance practices.
SEMI S8 is required as part of SEMI S2 assessment. Our engineers are trained to identify, assess and provide solutions to worker-related ergonomics problems.
