Improve Safety Standards

SEMA has been proactive in the development of standards in the industry for many years. The SEIRS initiative continues this business ethic to improve safety standards in an environment where product design, manufacture and installation take place under the influence of increased legislation.

NSI only uses installers that are qualified under the scheme

Components of SEIRS are based upon three key components:

The initiative is supported by the Health and Safety Executive. This includes the Safety Training, which is based on an Installation Guideline developed by SEMA and the SEIRS ID Card and registration system.

Health and Safety Executive welcomes SEIRS

The HSE has stated that: “The Health and Safety Executive welcomes SEIRS and the initiative taken by the Storage Equipment Manufacturers Association (SEMA) to improve safety standards. It demonstrates that SEMA is committed to raising both standards and awareness of Health and Safety issues associated with Storage Equipment.” There are two types of safety training courses:

  • Category “A” – Category “A” courses are the SEIRS safety courses that yield an ID Card.
  • Category “B” – Category “B” courses are peripheral courses only and do not yield a SEIRS ID card. There are optional courses in others such as forklift truck operator training and installer companies may wish to run back to back with a category “A” course.
