Conveyor Hazards

June 8, 2020 - June 9, 2020

According to WorkSafeBC, injuries related to conveyors are common, costly, and often severe. Thirty-five percent of the work-related injuries that occurred in the manufacturing sector in the five-year period from 2008 to 2012 were related to conveyors.
In total, $218 million was spent on such claims. Approximately one in four injuries that were directly associated
with conveyors resulted in amputation or fracture. These statistics demonstrate how important it is to implement
safeguards and lockout procedures.
