All industries are governed by the Occupation Health and Safety (OHS) Act and need to maintain certain standards for Safety, Health, Environment and Quality (SHEQ). Having the right systems in place to understand risks and how to protect people against them is essential, and training forms a core component of ensuring a safe working environment.

A global innovator of conveyor belt cleaning technology has introduced an autonomous tensioning system that continuously monitors and delivers proper cleaner tension. By utilising Martin Engineering’s intuitive new smart technology platform to maintain proper blade-to-belt pressure, the N2 Twist Tensioner provides the best possible cleaning performance throughout the life of the blade.

Some of the toughest maintenance challenges at operations are presented by large belt-driven conveyor systems. These critical assets require gear oil for their gearboxes, electric motor grease for the motors, and grease for multiple lubrication points – particularly bearings. Improper lubrication and contamination can cause premature wear, or even worse, create unplanned downtime.

Accelerated and efficient infrastructure procurement roll-out, addressing the current fiscal imbalance in the economy, and achieving the objectives of the National Development Plan (NDP) requires a strategic focus on not just the short-term, but the medium- to long-term delivery of basic services in South Africa, states The South African Institution of Civil Engineering (SAICE) ahead of President Cyril Ramaphosa’s upcoming State of the Nation Address (SONA).
