Agricultural farm conveyors are a type of conveyor system that is used to move agricultural products from one location to another. These conveyors can be found in many different types of farms, including dairy, beef, poultry, and vegetable farms. They are often used to move crops, livestock, and other supplies between different parts of the farm. They are also used to transport goods in factories and other industrial settings.
There are a few different types of agricultural conveyor accidents that can happen on farms. One common type of accident is the runaway conveyor, which happens when the conveyor belt gets out of control and starts moving faster than the operators can stop it. This can cause injuries to workers who are caught in the path of the belt, as well as damage to equipment.
Another type of conveyor accident is the fall off conveyor, which happens when a worker falls off the top of a conveyor belt and into a pile of raw meat or other hazardous material below. This can be very dangerous, as it can result in serious injuries or even death.
Finally, there are machine breakdowns (also known as machine failures) that can occur on any type of agricultural conveyor. If this happens, it can disrupt production and lead to serious consequences for farmers and their businesses.
If you have been injured by an agricultural conveyor, you should contact an attorney. The conveyor could be in violation of state or federal laws and your injury could entitle you to compensation. An attorney can help you understand your rights and potential remedies.
