Be Seeing You! SEMA Technical Seminar and Safety Conferenceback to list
19 May 2020
The spread of the coronavirus has led to SEMA, the Storage Equipment Manufacturer’s Association, cancelling or postponing a number of their planned seminars and events. However, SEMA is committed to promoting and extending the safe design, installation and use of storage equipment manufactured and supplied by its members and they have worked hard to rearrange key events this year.
SEMA Technical Seminar
Aimed at those for whom in-depth technical knowledge on storage is a prerequisite in their professional role SEMA’s Technical Seminar has been rearranged for Wednesday 18th November 2020 at the Birmingham West Hotel, West Bromwich.
Speakers are chosen for their significant depth of knowledge, skill and experience. Mike Savage and Alan Worrell from SEMA’s Technical Committee will explore upcoming changes to European codes and also present an overview of new industry codes currently in development.
Alan Schofield will explore current best practice in managing archive and library collections to ensure their long-term preservation. He will provide details on the recent and substantial updates to European and UK standards and the reasoning behind these changes. Also on the theme of archive storage, Chris Woods will explore how to account for the fabric of the building and environmental conditions and how the latest scientific research has impacted current standards.
Other very useful content for “the day job” will include presentations on automation, the future of the warehousing industry and a full standards update.
SEMA Safety Conference
SEMA’s Annual Safety Conference and Exhibition will be held on Thursday 5th November at the National Motorcycle Museum, Solihull, where your key storage safety concerns will be addressed.
Aimed at end-users, the conference brings together experienced industry speakers presenting on key legislation and giving practical advice on the safe design, manufacture, installation and use of storage equipment in-situ. Organisations working in the storage industry will provide case studies on how they have successfully implemented safe practice in storage. Members from SEMA’s Technical Committee will also provide updates on technical issues and current standards.
Delegates and speakers share a common interest; to continuously improve the safety benchmark either within their own work environments or as part of their professional responsibility to raise standards more widely (e.g. statutory authorities).
SEMA’s president, Jaap Vos, he says; “A crucial part of SEMA’s 2020 agenda is to lead the storage industry from a position of outstanding technical excellence. Although current situations have changed our planned schedule of events we are still committed to leading on best practice and these events will enable us to share what we know with those who have a duty of care for safe storage.”
