Martin Engineering Offers Expanded Conveyor Training Program


The new Foundations Plus seminar from Martin Engineering is designed to provide a methodology for assessing risk and analyzing life cycle costs, helping producers develop a deeper understanding of the true return on investment from conveyor upgrades to increase safety, efficiency and profitability.

Based on the company’s highly successful Foundations conveyor training series that has been educating operations, maintenance and management personnel for more than 20 years, the expanded session begins with the complete Operations and Maintenance Seminar on day one. Content is focused on practical solutions to the problems commonly experienced with controlling dust, spillage and carryback to keep conveyors running safely and at full availability.

The new module adds a full day to the program and includes a complete walking inspection, action plan and proposal for upgrades. “Foundations Plus takes the Operations and Maintenance module to the next step,” commented Training Manager Jerad Heitzler. “It’s been developed for plant and mine managers who not only want a highly skilled conveyor workforce, but also want to maximize the benefits of improved system performance.”

The new class offering also includes multiple copies of Foundations for Conveyor Safety, the newly-published reference volume from Martin Engineering that delivers information assembled specifically to help conveyor system operators achieve safer production.
