SEMI S2/S8 Compliance for Semiconductor Manufacturing

Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI) safety guidelines are compliance standards for industries that manufacture microelectronics and nanoelectronics. These guidelines were created to help ensure that reliable, high quality products are being produced with a high standard of safety. There are various SEMI standards that cover different areas of the semiconductor manufacturing industry; two of the certifications held by SilPac International are SEMI S2 for Environmental, Health and Safety, and SEMI S8 for Ergonomics and Human Factors.

SEMI S2-1016A Certification

The SilPac SP-PLC100 Controller Gas Cabinet System is SEMI S2-1016A certified by the Lewis Bass International Engineering Services for Environmental, Health and Safety Guidelines for Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment.

The SEMI S2 Certification defines minimum safety requirements, regulations and provisions for semiconductor manufacturing equipment including electrical design, mechanical hazards, fire prevention, radiation control, and ergonomics human standards. It also contains specifications for ventilation, exhaust, hazard warnings and hazard alert labeling, and emergency shutdown procedures.

SEMI S8-1116 Certification

The SilPac SP-PLC100 Controller Gas Cabinet System is also SEMI S8-1116 certified by the Lewis Bass International Engineering Services. This certification outlines the Safety Guidelines for Ergonomics/Human Factors and Engineering of Semiconductor Equipment and provides ergonomic design principles and considerations for semiconductor manufacturing equipment.

The purpose of these principles and considerations is to optimize safety by promoting compatibility between the user and the equipment in a manufacturing environment. Equipment is also required to be designed in a way that minimizes worker fatigue and injury and reduces the potential for errors and mishaps.
