Machine Safeguarding Basics

Harbor America - Mar 28, 2019, 10:40:00 AM

Thousands of workers each year suffer injuries that could have been avoided with proper machine safeguarding.

Prevent Contact

  • Safeguards must prevent a worker’s body from making contact with dangerous moving parts.

No “Workarounds”

  • Creating a workaround to avoid a safeguard defeats the purpose and can introduce new hazards to the work environment.

Safeguard Security

  • Guards should be secured to the machine and made out of durable material to withstand normal use conditions.

Contact Harbor America to learn more about accident prevention strategies.
