Health and Safety
Link 51 is committed to high standards of health & safety, recognizing our duty of care and the benefits of providing safe working conditions. We aim to achieve continuous improvement in health & safety performance through the use of robust health & safety management systems and practices in line with ISO 18001.
Link 51 places great emphasis on the safe design, installation and technical performance of all of the company's storage products. To this end, Link 51 was one of the founder member companies of the Storage Equipment Manufacturer's Association (SEMA), the national trade association for the storage equipment industry in the UK.
Link 51 conforms to SEMA's industry standard codes of practice which cover aspects of design, installation and health and safety practice relating to the supply of storage equipment. Link 51's own method statements and procedures are based on the published SEMA guidelines. SEMA's guidelines are the only recognised UK design standards for storage systems
Approved Installation Companies
Link 51 recommends that the installation of shelving and storage equipment is only undertaken by experienced and trained personnel and preferably by installers who are SEIRS (Storage Equipment Installers Registration Scheme) registered. SEIRS is a qualification for individual installers who themselves undergo industry-specific training in best practice, legislation and safe working practice.
Installation companies are now able to apply to become a SEMA Approved Installation Company (SAIC) to demonstrate their professionalism and dedication to safe working practices. All SEMA Approved Installation Companies must be following the SEIRS programme.
Our installation teams are also CSCS registered wherever practicable.
