Attend this course to improve your understanding of AS1755 & to raise the standard of conveyors on your site. The standard is explained using a structured approach, with great examples from sites, & prompts for discussion of its commonly misinterpreted concepts. Key Learning Outcomes Appreciate the intent of AS1755 Understand the legal obligations for conveyor designers and conveyor owners Review the important differences between AS1755 _ 1986 and AS1755 - 2000 Discuss examples of interpretation for access, emergency stops, guarding and signage Recognise grey areas in AS1755 that could impact your performance Review relevant conveyor incident and fatality statistics Observe industry best practice safety solutions for high risk areas About the Course This course provides participants with a comprehensive review of the AS1755 standard and what conveyor designers and conveyor plant owners need to know about safety systems for their conveyors. The standard is broken up into easy to understand sections. Each section is explained using examples from sites and direct extracts from AS1755. The primary focus is on troughed belt conveyors. Safety systems to control high risk potential, such as conveyor emergency stops and conveyor guarding, are presented in the most detail. Andrew uses his background in conveyor condition monitoring and design to discuss different methods of guard design to suit the increasingly strict industrial safety requirements. The course participant will learn about the importance of correct interpretation of AS1755 in the design phase of a conveyor project, but also learn ways to efficiently implement safety improvements to existing conveyor installations. This 1-day course will provide the participant with a thorough working knowledge of the safety requirements of AS1755, and allow them to review the current safety levels for their conveyor designs or conveyor plant.
