Environment, Health and Safety
SEMI is committed to environmentally sound policies and the health and safety of the community that works in the electronics supply chain.
SEMI focuses on global EHS issues, such as regulatory compliance, and other topics that can influence the advancement of EHS within the industry. As a member-driven collaborative platform, SEMI facilitates industry-wide efforts that member companies believe would be more effectively undertaken by the industry association and cross-industry working groups.
Beyond advocacy, SEMI members are also actively engaged in developing EHS standards. SEMI Standards have been widely adopted within the Industry and can be accessed here.
EH&S Areas of Activity
The SEMI International Standards Program brings together industry experts to exchange ideas and work towards developing globally accepted technical standards. SEMI provides a forum for the essential collaborations that move new and existing markets forward efficiently and profitably.
SEMI EH&S Standards, commonly known as the S Series, are relied on by manufacturing facilities and their suppliers, worldwide, to help ensure the safety of those working in the microelectronics manufacturing industry. The all-volunteer committee identifies and develops international environmental, health, and safety (EHS) Standards fulfilling the technical needs of the semiconductor, flat panel display and other related industries.
