Mining-technology.com reports: Martin Engineering and Stahura Conveyor Products (SCP) co-hosted a seminar on conveyor safety to raise safety education and standardize maintenance practices to reduce the risk of injury to individuals working around conveyors.

The event featured key speakers from prominent coal industry media, along with engineering experts and top executives, who highlighted the significant progress made in reducing injuries, while introducing new ways to take conveyor safety to the next level. “We are trying to change the way the industry thinks about conveyors,” observed Martin Engineering chief technology director and CEMA director, Todd Swinderman. “The equipment has become much more robust and reliable, but basic designs haven’t changed that much.”
