CONVEYOR SYSTEM SAFETY – PERSONAL PROTECTION

Arch Environmental is committed to keeping your work site safe. To help you maintain the safest environment possible, we manufacture a line of personal protection devices for your most valuable assets – your employees.

Invest in Arch’s precautionary equipment for those who work on or near your conveyors. We make a line of protection products for your conveyor belts, but this blog is all about people.

Here is how Arch’s product line benefits the people who keep your business running.

Why your Business Needs Them

It’s the employers’ responsibility to protect employees from work-related risks. Unfortunately, the features that make conveyor systems and belts so efficient are also what make them dangerous, to the system and the people who run them.

According to WorkSafeBC, more than one-third of reported, work-related injuries from 2008-2012 in the manufacturing sector were related to conveyors. So, protect your business and your employees with Arch Environmental Equipment and put our e-stops and alarms in place today.

Personal Protection

Arch personal protection products generally fall into two categories: pre-start alarms and emergency stop pull cord switches.

Here are a few features about each and how our products exceed the competition.

Pre-start alarms are audible and/or visual alarms that are activated prior to starting the machine to ensure that no one is on or near the conveyor.

CTS 900 Audio/Visual Pre-Start Alarm

  • Alarm buzzer and flashing strobe light
  • Heavy-duty housing
  • Corrosion proof
  • IP 65 degrees of protection

 

Emergency stop pull cord switches are installed along the length of the conveyor and connected by a vinyl cord that can stop the conveyor in case of an emergency.  Heavy duty construction allows for a spacing of up to 330 feet (100 M).
