Today’s thoughts on lessons learned from the Wile E. Coyote school of safety where they constantly defy the laws of physics, perverse the rules of nature and live in animated immortality. But in our world gravity always wins.
LESSON 1 – Never stand directly under a suspended load of materials or a bin with a clogged auger. If it were to suddenly drop or flow you don’t want to be there between it and the floor upon its landing. Even when clearing any kind of jam don’t try to clear it from directly underneath. (Are you seeing the theme here?) A sudden release of the jammed product could the very least seriously injure your neck, spine, shoulders, head or suffocate you if not outright kill you. Also when you are clearing jams please make sure to Lock Out Tag Out the power source to help prevent injuries, Never keep quiet about safety for the life you save may be your own.
