Lockout valves and disable switches are both mechanisms which allow for deactivation of automatic discharge of a fire suppression system when it is in the maintenance mode. This brief comparison is intended to provide a basic examination of these devices, and illustrate the reasons for selecting either of these devices as part of a semiconductor tool fire suppression system, and outline the proper method for implementing these devices in a fire suppression system design that complies with applicable fire codes and semiconductor industry guidelines.

The high-tech sector faces a severe talent shortage due to retirement of older professionals. As senior EHS professionals retire, the loss of their knowledge will jeopardize the industry’s ability to address chemical, physical, electrical, and biological risks, threatening the very foundation of the industry and posing serious business continuity concerns. To address this issue, SESHA and the sustainable business advisory group, Vichara Partners, are launching a new EHS Workforce Development Initiative to cultivate the next generation of EHS professionals for the high-tech sector.
In this loveliest and happiest of seasons, this season of good tidings and cheer, may you find many reasons to celebrate. We entreat the melodies and spirit of this season of joy to fill your home with love and peace. May your world sparkle with the reflection of a spirit of goodness in your life. May the light of hope shine brightly upon your days, and fill your moments with memories that you will always treasure. KFPI wishes you a time of contentment, merriment, and festivity, and best success in the new year.
As a proud member and supporter of SESHA, KFPI would like to encourage any high-technology professionals involved in EHS, to consider participating in the upcoming SESHA Webinar in January of 2020. The topic of this webinar is Risk Communication for EHS Managers. This environmental health and safety learning opportunity will be held on January 8, 2020, at 4:00 PM EST . This Webinar will share some of the valuable knowledge and experience of Dr. Shannon Maggari from Colden Corporation.
Fire safety solutions for high technology processes require something more than average technical proficiency and uncertain fire safety components. KFPI has a keen understanding of the requirements of high-technology manufacturing fire safety. All fire safety solutions and products provided by KFPI, meet or exceed all relevant fire safety codes, including NFPA, SEMI, and FM Global standards.
We are pleased to announce the opening of KFPI US Pacific Northwest Branch, near Portland, Oregon. In order to better serve our customers in the US Pacific Northwest, we will be opening a new regional branch, beginning 1 January 2020. Our new location will be in the greater Portland, Oregon area. We will be positioning strong technical assets in this new KFPI branch office. KFPI semiconductor equipment fire safety is committed to providing exemplary service to our valued customers in the Pacific Northwest and the Western US, with the addition of this strategic positioning of technical resources.
For almost 20 years, TraceTek has been the most reliable and accurate fluid leak detection system for High Technology, Commercial, Industrial, and Environmental applications. A leak detection system may be installed and operate continuously 5, 10, 15 years or more before being called on to provide the earliest warning of a leak. And after all that time, the system must operate perfectly, providing positive detection of a small leak, and accuracy in the leak location. There are few systems in any facility that must perform as well as the leak detection systems, and even fewer tasked with protecting the most critical systems and equipment.
Participation in SESHA region and chapter activities can assist you in staying up-to-date on new regulatory compliance issues, important accident/incident information, and can provide insight into possible solutions to many of the environmental, health and safety challenges present in the high technology industries. For more information on SESHA’s region / chapter program go to the SESHA Region / Chapter Toolbox. For more information on how you can get involved, please email the SESHA Headquarters, or contact KFPI. We are a proud member and supporter of SESHA.
