It’s no co-incidence that a UK food retailing giant specifies SEMA membership on all tenders for new installations. When you’re buying storage solutions, your structure should be fit for purpose, offer longevity and give you no cause for concern.

For over 40 years, members of SEMA, the Storage Equipment Manufacturers’ Association, have manufactured storage systems to designs which meet standards and regulations, and ensured installation via safe practices. SEMA is currently implementing a new Code of Practice for the Design of Adjustable Pallet Racking.

Other dedicated SEMA organisations have been set up to fulfil warehouse managers’ needs. Embraced by the Health & Safety Executive, SEIRS is an ID card registration system for individual installers working to the SEMA Code of Practice and Guidelines. SAIC stands for SEMA Approved Installation Company while SDC is applied to SEMA Distributor Companies. Each business commits to best H&S practice, the SEIRS training programme and the SDG Member Charter, and the installation of original equipment.

SEMA’s Standards & Regulations Seminar Conference is at the National Metalforming Centre, West Bromwich on Wednesday 30th May.

SEMA’s annual Safety Conference & Exhibition is on 1st November at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull and updates the storage industry supply chain on the latest developments.

SEMA offers end users two one-day courses, the Rack Safety Awareness Course and the Managing Rack Maintenance Course.
