Safety Information

At KWS Manufacturing Company, Ltd., we strongly believe that accidents are preventable and are committed to ensuring that a safe working environment exists for our customers.

KWS Manufacturing Company, Ltd. supports the safety recommendations of Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA), which were developed as a means of promoting the best safety practices. It does not substitute for a thorough in-plant safety program centered on the hazards associated with operating installed equipment.

In an effort to promote standardization and safety in the conveyor industry, CEMA has developed a series of standardized safety programs oriented around typical hazards encountered when using conveying equipment.



KWS Manufacturing Company, Ltd.'s equipment is provided with Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) safety labels in the CEMA recommended locations. After installation, it is the responsibility of the user to ensure that the labeling is visible. If required, additional safety labels will be provided and shipped at no charge. Should the labels attached to the equipment become illegible, replacement labels will be provided and shipped at no charge. All requests for replacement labels must be made in writing.

For complete information on CEMA safety recommendations, visit the Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) website at www.cemanet.org.

It is the responsibility of the contractor, installer, owner and user to install, maintain and operate the conveyor, components and, conveyor assemblies in such a manner as to comply with the Williams-Steiger Occupational Safety and Health Act and with all state and local laws and ordinances and the most current edition of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) "Safety Standard for Conveyors and Related Equipment", ASME B20.1.
