Hazard Monitoring Systems (HMS) is critical in the early detection of equipment failures. OSHA has mandated that grain elevators in Class II, Division 1 environments must have the 3 monitoring sub-systems for elevator safety. These sub-systems which identify operational “hotspots” like belt slippage, hot bearings, and misaligned belts -- are extremely vital to the safe and day-to-day operations of every facility.
Grain industry professionals and OSHA agree properly installed hazard monitoring systems are a key factor and a facilities first line of defense in the detection of hazardous situations and provide early warning to avoid the potential of grain dust explosions. Today there are still a number of facilities that tolerate nuisance alarms and unreliable sensors which takes away from the effectiveness of the systems and makes plant person complacent when there is a real situation. This very dangerous mindset and can lead to poor decision making and horrible outcomes.
