Belle Banne Conveyor Services - Knifeless Splice

About this entry

Employees at Belle Banne realised that 80 per cent of injuries at their workplace were lacerations caused by using knives to splice conveyor belts or repair damaged sections of rubber. In response, the company developed a knifeless splice technique. This involved identifying 10 actions that required a knife and implementing an alternative method for doing each task. Belle Banne has not had a knife injury since.
