Product Safety Training

Salus Engineering International provides a full range of courses on design for safety compliance. Our courses have been successfully taught throughout the world. A central element of the strength of these courses is the experience of the instructors. Salus Engineering International only uses engineering safety professionals who have years of hands-on experience to conduct training. This greatly enhances the interactive portion of the training course that is essential to its success. While Salus Engineering International has a standard suite of courses, any of these courses can be customized to delete materials that may not be useful to a given equipment manufacturer, or to add materials that may be of particular use. Salus Engineering International’s standard package of training includes the following courses.

Design for SEMI S2 Compliance (1-Day Course)

This course provides a comprehensive overview of the requirements of SEMI S2, the Environmental, Health, and Safety Guideline for Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment and its essential supporting standards. Its focus is in two essential areas: developing a basic understanding of the requirements of SEMI S2, and helping to identify the most common SEMI S2 non-compliances and how to avoid them. This is a good overview course for companies that are new to the S2 process.

Design for SEMI S2 Compliance (3-Day Course)

This is an in-depth course intended for design engineers on the requirements of SEMI S2 Environmental, Health, and Safety Guideline for Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment. Instruction is focused on both understanding requirements and applying them to engineering design. Training is supported by Salus Engineering’s virtual equipment used to illustrate engineering examples. Discussions as well as examples cover the full range of SEMI S2 topics including electrical, mechanical, chemical, ventilation, industrial hygiene, seismic, documentation, interlocks, and EMO. The following supporting standards are integrated into this course.

  • SEMI S8 - Safety Guideline for Ergonomics Engineering of Semiconductor Manufacturing
  • SEMI S1 - Safety Guideline for Equipment Safety Labels
  • SEMI S3 - Safety Guidelines for Process Liquid Heating Systems
  • SEMI S6 - Environmental, Health and Safety Guideline for Exhaust Ventilation of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
  • SEMI S10 - Safety Guideline for Risk Assessment and Risk Evaluation Process
  • SEMI S13 - Environmental, Safety, and Health Guideline for Documents Provided to the Equipment User for Use with Manufacturing Equipment
  • SEMI S14 - Safety Guidelines For Fire Risk Assessment and Mitigation for Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
  • SEMI Guideline S22 - Safety Guideline for the Electrical Design of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
  • ANSI R15.06 - American National Standard for Industrial Robots and Robot Systems – Safety Requirements

All aspects of compliant design are included in this comprehensive training course.

Design for Electrical Safety (1-Day Course)

This electrical safety design course begins with the fundamentals of electrical safety, and then progresses to electrical design in the semiconductor industry as it relates to essential national, international, and industry standards such as:

  • NFPA 79 - Electrical Standard for Industrial Machinery
  • EN60204 - Safety of Machinery – Part 1 General Requirements
  • SEMI S22 - Safety Guideline for the Electrical Design of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment

Emphasis is given on both understanding requirements and successfully applying them to electrical design. This course relies heavily on examples to facilitate interactive discussion and understanding of the material.

Design for SEMI S22 Compliance (1-Day Course)

This course provides detailed information regarding electrical design engineering for the new SEMI S22 Guideline - Safety Guideline for the Electrical Design of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment. Understanding requirements and their application is the central thrust of this course. Examples and brief in-class exercises help illustrate the material.

Design for SEMI S8 Compliance (1-Day Course)

This course has a dual focus: understanding the requirements of SEMI S8 (the Ergonomics Engineering of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment) and understanding how to apply them to ergonomically sound equipment design. While ergonomics is an increasingly important topic, it is also a difficult concept for design engineers to grasp and effectively apply. This course effectively bridges that gap. The key is encouraging design engineers to understand ergonomic requirements as another set of design parameters that must be accounted for during the design phase, and then providing them with practical solutions to the implementation of such a program. Emphasis of this course is on cost-efficient ergonomic design of equipment.

Safety/Compliance Design for Gas Boxes (1-Day Course)

This course focuses on gas box design for toxics, flammables, and pyrophorics. The materials cover all aspects of gas box design including ventilation, P&ID design, and component selection as it relates to safety and compliance. Emphasis is given to both comprehending requirements and applying them. This course makes use of essential reference standards such as:

  • F15 - Test Method for Enclosures Using Sulfur Hexafluoride Tracer Gas and Gas Chromatography
  • SEMI S6 - Environmental, Health and Safety Guideline for Exhaust Ventilation of Semiconductor Manufacturing Equipment
  • NFPA 70 - National Electric Code and Uniform Fire Code
  • NFPA 496 - Standard for Purged and Pressurized Enclosures

S2 Breakdown! How to Critically Review the Key Sections of an S2 Report (1-Day Course)

SEMI S2 is a comprehensive safety standard: it has requirements for all types of hazards. Therefore, the reader of an S2 report, either, learns a lot about the protections and mitigations for the hazardous energies and substances on the system, or, learns... not so much... Having the tools to critically review a SEMI S2 report and recognize the essential supporting guidelines and standards relevant to that equipment and its safety, is a positive asset for risk management at the use or integration facility. This course is designed to give insights into the key areas of a SEMI S2 report related to the system under review and whether it matters or not.
