Stone, Sand & Gravel REVIEW - November/December 2018 - 26

seems right for safety, are you creating
long-term liability? Might your investigation unnecessarily create more problems than it prevents? Are there smarter
approaches to investigations that
enhance safety while also minimizing
other liability? This session will explore
the different major aspects of near-miss
and accident investigations, how these
important safety efforts can nonetheless
create liability risks, and strategies to
consider for managing those risks.

Industry 4.0 - Digital Solutions
in Aggregates

Kyle Davis, ABB Motors and
Mechanical, Inc.
It is expensive to run a quarry or sand
and gravel production facility. Equipment
is costly to install, maintain, repair and
replace, as it often does not reach its
useful service life, and operations are
getting  leaner  with internally-hired
maintenance personnel. Wireless and
inexpensive digital monitoring solutions
are now available that facilitate the monitoring of electric motors, mounted
bearings and gear reducers. These technologies significantly reduce the chance
of catastrophic equipment failure and
costly unplanned downtime. This session will present case studies, based on
actual producer usage of this technology, that quantify the benefits of wireless sensor technology and show how
it helps improve plant profitability by
complementing maintenance and reliability staff.

Building Organizational
Effectiveness - Just Add Water

Erica Flukinger, Lehigh Hanson
Learn how an aggregates producer tackled building solutions across a dispersed
workforce in people processes like
onboarding, developing,  motivating,
and retaining people. Leave with simple
and practical tools you can try at your
location by just adding your leadership,
ingenuity, and creativity (e.g., water)
to it. Let's work together to build better
workplaces where our people rarely dread

a Sunday night that leads to a miserable Monday morning. Attendees will
discover: 1) Ideas and "one-page" recipes
to try at your location; 2) Methods to
navigate and manage complex change; 3)
How to "own less" and get team involved
in solving stuff.

Conveyors 101

Rod Martin, Martin Stone Co. and
Jeff Jurasits, ASGCO
Conveyors are the lifeline to any aggregate plant's productivity. This presentation will review the "Conveyor 101"
program that has proven successful at
facilities across the country. Attendees
will gain an understanding of conveyor
systems, conveyor belts, their components and how they affect your plant's
performance. Get safety guidelines for
working on or around conveyors, tips on
reducing fugitive material and dust (and
solutions to control it), and ideas on how
to implement a conveyor inspection and
maintenance service program that works
for your plant.

I Wish Someone Would
Communicate Around Here

Brian Gareau, Brian Gareau, Inc.
Ineffective communication costs businesses big bucks. Research estimates a
company with 100 people spends nearly
$500K/year clarifying what was already
communicated. Too often, fundamental
communication techniques are forgotten
by individuals and organizations. The
results can be devastating. Inconsistent,
mixed messages create inefficiency. New
technology increases speed and accessibility but not necessarily understanding.
How well does your organization proactively address common communication
issues in the workplace? In this session,
you'll learn to minimize the impact of
some major barriers that make effective
communication difficult, expand your
understanding of why effective communication requires three key steps and
how to effectively use each, and improve
your own communications immediately

Drill and Blast Improvement
Project Using Photogrammetry,
GPS and Drill Navigation Systems

Tamara Wiseman, RAM Explosive
Technical Services
Discover how a drill and blast optimization program can improve primary
throughput, reduction in secondary breakage, reduction in fines and
improved efficiencies with loading and
hauling of shot rock. This session presents a case study of the Warren County
Quarry in Camak, Georgia, where initial
blasting generated high percentages of
oversize, back break, poor floor control and poor fragmentation. Through
implementing a proactive drill and blast
design and technology like automated
borehole logs, 3-D photogrammetry, blast
design software, angle borehole drilling, unmanned aerial system (UAS), and
geological analysis, the quarry realized
significant, measurable improvement.

Build Your Sandcastle! How
Manufactured Sand Meets Modern
Construction Needs.

Vincent Schmitt, Metso Minerals, Inc.
Rapid development, population growth,
and urbanization are driving an evergrowing need for new buildings and
infrastructure, making sand a highdemand commodity. At the same time,
environmental concerns and dwindling
natural resources mean that contractors are under pressure to improve their
energy and raw material efficiency. As a
result, manufactured sand is becoming a
viable material alternative for new construction. In this session, we will discuss
how you can make manufactured sand
the business of building the future and
how you can produce sand according to
your customer specification while making both your process and your raw material usage more efficient. With the help of
the latest-developed, reliable and robust
