Guarding Slide Presentation: Guarding Conveyor Belts at Metal and Nonmetal Mines

This slide presentation, compiled in 2010, provides detailed information to help the metal and nonmetal mining industry meet MSHA’s requirements for guarding conveyor belts.  Photos of a variety of situations show the right and wrong ways to construct guards that protect miners from exposure to conveyor belt moving parts and satisfy MSHA regulations. The information supplements guarding guidance in MSHA’s  2004 Guide to Equipment Guarding and Program Policy Manual.
