Navigating the storage can be complex a process. Do you know what standards your existing storage schemes are designed to? Are you fed up with the time it takes to check the details on a storage firm’s quality credentials? SEMA are here to do the leg work on health and safety, use of trained labour and correct storage design.
SEMA benefits our members by bringing like-minded providers of warehouse racking services together, ensuring consistency for warehouse managers and employees alike. Communication is at the heart of SEMA whether new legislation or industry issues we are here to provide a one stop shop for warehouse safety and management.
Each of SEMA’s five membership groups places health and safety at the heart of its agenda and together they cover the full supply chain. With a mandate to establish and continually improve safe working practices in the storage industry, SEMA works cohesively with the HSE, CSCS, RoSPA and other lead bodies.
When a racking structure is purchased from a recognised SEMA member, it comes with a warranty based on independent testing to our recognised Quality Assurance System which guarantees that the product has been designed, manufactured, and installed to rigorously defined standards. The rack’s carrying capacity is based on this full circle of quality being in place and the Load Notice displayed normally carries the supplier’s full contact details for when advice is necessary.
SEMA Installation Companies or ‘SAICs’ manage installation projects to SEMA’s Quality Assurance standards and to qualify as a SAIC the company must demonstrate a high level of commitment to safety standards, work to industry codes of practice and be regulated by an annual audit to measure the company’s ability to meet their customer needs and deliver a high-quality service.
Storage systems are supplied by the SEMA Distributor Group of companies (SDG). Recognised for the quality supply of their storage equipment, an SDG company must demonstrate a high level of commitment to safety standards, work to industry codes of practice and be regulated by an independent external audit which measures 31 areas of quality. This is the only scheme in the UK that independently audits the competence of resellers and distributors of storage equipment.
