CEMA SAFETY INFORMATION
|PLEASE NOTE: CEMA members do not compete in the area of safety and endeavor to promote standard safety labeling and practices for standard conveyor products throughout the industry. They have freely supplied information about their safety programs that apply to the equipment that they manufacture, design or sell, to produce consensus safety labels and placement guidelines, safety posters, safety videos, and safety topic technical reports to promote that industry safety.
CEMA Safety Labels are intentionally not copyrighted to promote safe practices in the workplace.
REMEMBER: Do Not Remove, Reuse or Modify Material Handling Equipment for any purpose other than its original intended use In an effort to promote standardization and safety in the conveying industry, CEMA has developed a series of standardized safety labels and associated literature oriented around typical hazards encountered when using conveying equipment. They are focused on the consensus hazards that can be identified with the equipment that a Conveyor OEM produces and ships from its factory. As with all safety programs, this is a work in progress. Should any OEM determine the need for other labels or a need to modify the existing consensus safety labels, the OEM should bring their concern to the attention of the CEMA Safety Committee by contacting Phil Hannigan at CEMA.
The labels, placement guidelines, safety posters, safety videos, and technical information below constitute the CEMA Conveyor Safety Program.
The safety label program is not designed to replace an in-plant assessment of other hazards and dangers that may exist around the equipment as it is installed at a particular location. Other warnings, labels, and signs, as well as guarding, may be required to insure worker safety at the installed location. It does not replace the need for an “IN PLANT” safety program to protect the workers as they operate the equipment. To that end, we have produced some safety posters, safety videos, and safety best practices and technical information that can assist in educating workers to the safety practices that can help promote a safe working environment in the plant.
NOTICE: CEMA NO LONGER STOCKS, PRINTS OR SELLS FOREIGN LANGUAGE LABELS.
CEMA Advice To OEMs: The English version of CEMA safety labels should be placed on all equipment by the original equipment manufacturer unless the customer specifically requests addition of foreign language labels. If such a request is made by the customer, the request should be part of the contract, the customer should specify the language(s), and the labels should be printed by the OEM as part of the contract cost.
