Machine Guarding
  • An overview of the requirements for machine
    guarding in the workplace.

3
General Rule
  • 29 CFR 1910.212 (a) states One or more methods
    of machine guarding shall be provided to protect
    the operator and other employees in the machine
    area from hazards such as those created by point
    of operation, ingoing nip points, rotating parts,
    flying chips, and sparks.

4
Why?
  • People would not deliberately put their hand into
    a machine, would they?
  • Accidental contact with machine parts can cause
    very serious injury.
  • Flying debris from machines is a danger, not only
    to the operator, but to other employees in the
    area.

5
What needs to be guarded?
  • Point of operation Where the actual work of the
    machinery is performed (shearing, cutting, etc.).
  • Power Transmission points pulleys, belts, gears,
    etc.
  • Moving Machine Parts The motions could be
    rotation, reciprocating, or transverse.

6
The guards must
  • Prevent accidental contact with the moving parts
    or point of operation.
  • Prevent foreign objects from entering cycling
    machinery (such objects can become projectiles).
  • Not interfere with safe machine operation.
  • Be secured to the machine.
  • Create hazards (sharp edges, etc.).

7
Basic Rules forMachine Operation
  • Never wear loose clothing around moving machine
    parts.
  • Do not wear rings or jewelry.
  • Keep long hair tied back to avoid entanglement.
  • Do not by-pass guards and safety devices.

8
Machine Maintenance
  • Guards should only be removed when
  • Machines have been shut down and proper lock-out
    and tag-out procedures are followed.
  • Machinery is idle for maintenance.
  • Do not operate machinery without the guards in
    place!

9
Guards do not guarantee an accident free machine!
  • Ensure employees are trained in the proper
    operation of the machine.
  • Machinery must be maintained in safe condition
    and not modified in any way not approved by the
    manufacturer.

10
In Summary
  • Guards are not only a good sense precaution, they
    are required by law!
  • Guards must be in place at all times when
    machinery is operating.
  • Guards are not a substitute for a good machine
    maintenance program and employee training.
