SESHA ESH for High Technology, presents the Virtual Symposia bringing all the cutting-edge research and practical ES&H information of our live symposium directly to you. Join the entire global ES&H Semiconductor Community for this unique learning experience. Scheduled in weekly three-hour classes, each symposium session features multiple speakers on a specific topic. May – August 2020
The 42nd Annual International High Technology ESH Symposium & Exposition of the Semiconductor Environmental, Safety & Health Association (SESHA) is an educational and research forum. The meeting includes symposia, posters, special programs and workshops, as well as contributed papers in topical sessions. The 2020 Meeting will run from April 13–17 at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort in the heart of beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona.
Over the past 4+ years KFPI has been involved in the research, testing, and development of fire safety solutions regarding pyrophoric chemicals hazards. This included many projects regarding the fire detection and fire suppression/protection of energetic materials such as pyrophoric liquid metal organics like TMA (trimethyl aluminum).
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.
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.
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.
High purity metalorganic precursors are widely used in semiconductor manufacturing, in the production of integrated circuits and devices. These once exotic chemistries are now a standard part of various doping and deposition processes. Semiconductor-grade metalorganics are highly-refined for use as precursors in silicon and compound semiconductor industry processes.
