-Conveyor belts are used in many industries to transport goods and materials between stages of a process.
-Conveyor systems is a good way to reduce the risks of musculoskeletal injury in tasks or processes that involve manual handling.
-If they are not properly designed conveyor belt workstations can contribute to the development of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s).
