Conveyor Safety Standards Conveyor safety standards address safety considerations in design, testing, and use, doing so with a focus beyond other standards that primarily address proper functioning with safety as an indirect result as proper functioning is of course safe functioning. These conveyor standards focus specifically on safety.

Additionally, significant attention is paid to fire safety, with fire simulation flammability testing and fire resistance tests taking the spotlight.

ASME B20.1-2012
Safety Standard for Conveyors and Related Equipment


BS EN 1554:2012
Conveyor belts. Drum friction testing (British Standard)
This European Standard describes a method of test to determine the propensity of a conveyor belt to generate heat flame or glow when held stationary under a given tension, in surface contact around a rotating driven steel drum.eans of varying the belt tension are described.OTEor certain belt types, due to their construction, it may not be possible to conduct this test due to the inability of the belt to comply with the requirements of 6.2.3.

This standard is also available from: DIN  /  ON  /  SS


BS EN 12882:2008
Conveyor belts for general purpose use. Electrical and flammability safety requirements (British Standard)
This European Standard specifies electrical and flammability safety requirements for general purpose conveyor belts not intended for use in underground installations and a means of categorizing conveyor belts in terms of the level of safety sought in their end use application. This European Standard does not provide electrical safety requirements for volume resistance which may be measured by the methods in EN ISO 21178 and which is relevant to some types of light conveyor belts. This European Standard is not applicable to conveyor belts which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN. NOTE 1 Directive 94/9/EC concerning equipment and protective systems intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres can be applicable to the type of machine or equipment covered by this European Standard. The present standard is not intended to provide means of complying with the essential health and safety requirements of Directive 94/9/EC, this being covered in EN 14973. NOTE 2 EN 12882 is not a product standard but is intended to help users of conveyor belts to select the required electrical and flammability safety properties needed following a suitable risk assessment. No requirements are, therefore, included for marking, information to be supplied, etc., these matters being covered in relevant product standards such as EN ISO 14890 and EN ISO 15236-1.
