Martin Engineering GmbH has announced the expansion of its conveyor safety-training program, with its first seminar presented in Russia.
Designed to raise the knowledge level and risk awareness of attendees, the session was conducted at the JSC Verhnebakansky Cement Plant in the Krasnodar region.
Fifteen employees participated in a two-part program that featured an initial inspection of the facility’s conveyor system, followed by an in-depth one-day classroom event. Attendees report that the Foundations™ training program delivered a number of benefits specific to the site, including observations of the existing equipment and instruction on technologies to help improve system performance, reduce downtime and material waste, and minimise hazards to employees.
During the initial phase of the training at the Verhnebakansky Cement Plant, Martin Engineering technicians conducted a thorough inspection of the conveyors, chutes, guarding and related components. With a detailed summary in hand for day two, the presenters were able to identify specific issues, separating root causes from symptoms, and introducing the latest technologies available to address problem areas.
Plant managers in Russia are also recognising the benefits of new equipment designs, such as track-mounted components that reduce downtime and maintenance hours, as well as modular air cleaners which can deliver better performance than large central collection systems that consume vast amounts of energy.
