Author: ASME International
Format: SOFT (SOFTCOVER)
Publication Date: 2021
Accidents resulting from the manual handling of materials have been reduced by the use of conveying and other forms of mechanical handling equipment. A further reduction in the accident rate can be gained by following safe practices in the design, construction, installation, operation and maintenance of such equipment.
The design and installation of conveyors and conveyor systems should be supervised by qualified engineers. Likewise, the operation and maintenance of conveyors and systems should be supervised by trained personnel.
The purpose of this Standard is to present certain guides for the design, construction, installation, operation and maintenance of conveyors and related equipment.
Operation and maintenance instructions in this Safety Standard are intended for general applications. The equipment manufacturer and/or installer should be consulted for specific operating and maintenance instructions.
