FOUNDATIONS™ Training Program

For nearly 20 years, Martin Engineering’s FOUNDATIONS™ Books and Workshops have taught industry personnel to operate and maintain clean and safe belt conveyors.

In 2009, Martin Engineering published FOUNDATIONS™ 4th Edition, the Practical Resource for Cleaner, Safer, More Productive Dust & Material Control. Available as a hardcover reference book or for internet download, FOUNDATIONS™ 4 provides a thorough discussion of topics and techniques for improving the performance of belt conveyors.

Martin Engineering also published the FOUNDATIONS™ for Conveyor Safety book to complement the FOUNDATIONS™ series of books and workshops in an effort to promote conveyor safety.  This collection of worldwide best practices together in a single resource demonstrates the methodology behind calculating the Return On Conveyor Safety™ so you can quantify the true value of conveyor safety.
