Article: Safety First! Increased Safety at Shredding Plants with the Newell Feed Ramp Safety Cover by: Scott Newell
For Shredder Plant Safety, it is important to implement measures for protection of personnel and equipment. From the research and development phase, great care is taken to assure that a Feed Ramp Safety Cover is robust, ergonomic, and most of all, efficient against flying pieces coming from the machine.
This helps reduce or eliminate the possibility of injury or death. Newell has installed these Feed Ramp Safety Covers across many plants, and the Plant Operators report significant drops in accidents resulting from ejections of debris at the mill Early Concept drawing of the Feed Ramp Safety Cover, including base, operator ladder, safety cover , and operator guards.
