Conveyors are essential in today's industrial environment, but they can be dangerous. A conveyor contains many moving parts including chains, sprockets, shafts, pulleys, rollers and belting. Any moving part is a potential source of danger to a careless or untrained operator.


Everyone coming in contact with the conveyor should be aware of the following:

  1. Do Not operate conveyor with protective guards removed. (i.e. chain guards, belt guards, snub roller guards, center drive guards, Etc.)

  2. Do Not walk, ride, climb, or touch moving parts on a conveyor in operation.

  3. Do Not wear loose clothing or uncovered hair around conveyors.

  4. Do Not work near conveyors without knowing how and where to shut "OFF" power.

  5. Do Not replace parts or perform maintenance on conveyors or moving conveyor parts, without first shutting "OFF" power to the system.

  6. Do Not remove jammed products with the conveyor in operation.

  7. Do Not connect gravity to powered conveyors without gravity connector brackets.

  8. To prevent electrical shock, the conveyor must be grounded, and have proper electrical connections, in accordance with Federal, State and Local electric Codes.


It is the responsibility of the user of the conveyor to comply with safety standards, including OSHA and other Federal, State and local codes or regulations. Placement of guards and other safety equipment in accordance with safety standards is dependent upon the area and use to which the conveyor system is put. A safety study should be made of the conveyor application and guards should be installed whenever possible.
