WARNING: Make no adjustments on the conveyor while it is in motion!!!

BEFORE MAINTENANCE

  • Since maintenance functions are generally to be performed while the conveyor is off, the main power switch to the conveyor should be locked in the open or off position. This will prevent anyone inadvertently applying power to the system while maintenance personnel are working on the system.

  • Do not perform any work on the system while it is running unless the nature of the maintenance absolutely requires operation of the system. When the system must be operated to perform maintenance, only personnel who have been instructed on the operation of the conveyors may perform the work.


DURING MAINTENANCE

  • Do not wear loose clothing while performing maintenance on operating equipment.

  • Be alert to hazardous conditions, such as sharp edges on protruding parts.

  • When using mechanical aids, hoists, cables, and other equipment to perform maintenance, us with extreme care. The use of such aids could cause damage to the conveyors which in turn could cause a dangerous condition when the conveyor is turned back on.

  • Poor housekeeping practices can lead to accidents and insufficient conveyor operation. Clean up spilled lubricants and other materials as promptly and completely as possible, especially material caught or lodged in the movable parts but only when the conveyor is "OFF"


AFTER MAINTENANCE

  • Do a "walk-around" of the conveyor and make certain all safety devices and guards are in place and all tolls or maintenance equipment have been removed from the conveyor areas.

  • Make certain all personnel are clear of the conveyor and are made aware that the conveyor is about to be started.

  • Only authorized personnel should be permitted to start the conveyor following maintenance or an emergency shut-off.
