Conveyors are common equipment found in industry. They are used to move products and supplies in and out of a work site, from one part of the plant to another, and between workstations. In all kinds of assembly operations, ranging from microelectronics to the automotive industry, conveyors, whether powered or unpowered, roller or belt, overhead or floor, are literally the backbone of the production system.
The entire work process revolves around the conveyor. Its height, width, speed and position in relation to the worker modify the overall workload and the way workers do their job. To lessen the likelihood for adverse effects of long hours spent at a conveyor of any type, some ergonomic and design issues have to be considered.
Add a badge to your website or intranet so your workers can quickly find answers to their health and safety questions.
