Our core service at Salus Engineering International is to provide world class third-party evaluations to the SEMI S2 standard, "Environmental, Health, and Safety Guideline for Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment."
Many local electrical inspectors in the US require non-listed, complex, and unique industrial equipment to be field evaluated. Salus Engineering is approved by numerous state and local jurisdictions to provide this service.
Manufacturers selling products in Europe must carry out a conformity assessment, write a technical file and sign a declaration of conformity. Salus Engineering can assist with the assessment and technical file to the Low Voltage and Machinery Directives.
Product Safety Training
Salus Engineering International provides a full range of courses on design for safety compliance.
Complex manufacturing machinery with embedded hazardous lasers and/or sources of ionizing radiation sold in the USA is required to have documentation submitted to the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Salus Engineering International is registered to make these submissions as e-filings on behalf of our clients. Preparation of the package dovetails with safety assessment, design review and industrial hygiene surveys because personnel protections including shielding and interlocking are essential in these systems.
Tracer Gas Testing
Testing in accordance with the SEMI S6 Methodology "Environmental, Health, and Safety Guideline for Exhaust Ventilation of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment" is an important part of the SEMI S2 evaluation of systems with flammable, pyrophoric or toxic gas. Tracer gas testing can also provide vital input into improving ventilation and exhaust systems.
Vendors selling to Seagate must comply with Seagate's safety requirements. Salus Engineering International was instrumental in supporting Seagate in setting up this program and we are one of the only Seagate approved equipment evaluators.
Engineering Risk Management
The Principals of Salus Engineering have extensive experience helping companies with a relatively new balance the cost of risk reduction with the potential cost of industrial accidents.
Salus Engineering is equipped to support manufacturers in conducting energy usage measurements and identifying areas for potential energy reduction.
Solar Equipment Safety
The solar industry does not yet have its own set of safety guidelines, however, this does not mean that hazards do not exist in the way solar equipment handles the hazardous energy and chemistries required for it to run. Salus Engineering has the experience necessary to help companies develop a customized program to reduce risk.
Salus Engineering also has the expertise to provide our clients with the following services:
Industrial Hygiene Evaluation
Electrical Safety / Compliance
Process Hazard Analysis
Ergonomics Evaluation / Consultation
Lasers and Radiation Safety and CDRH filings
Robotics and Automation Evaluation
