SOP39 Program

SOP 39 is Seagate’s Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) covering safety requirements for its production equipment.  Salus Engineering International was instrumental in supporting Seagate in setting up this program and we are one of the few Seagate approved equipment evaluators.  Salus Engineering has years of experience working with the Seagate team in all their facilities in Europe, Asia and the US. 

SOP39 is based on SEMI S2, but has been designed to meet Seagate’s needs while keeping the program implementation cost effective. While the objective of this program is to cover the essential safety elements that are covered by SEMI S2, the reporting structure has been greatly reduced. Essential areas include electrical safety, chemical safety, ventilation, mechanical hazards, interlocking, emergency off, ergonomics, fire protection, robotics, radiation, and lasers.  Because of our long history with this program, Salus Engineering International can support equipment manufacturers in finding the quickest and least costly path to satisfying these requirements. The ultimate goal is to ensure Seagate receives high quality production equipment that meets essential safety requirements.
