why safeguard Machines?

Within every workplace, there is some level of hazard that requires safeguard applications. For industrial and assembly workers the human interaction with moving machinery creates dangers that can injure, maim, or kill a person. Every employee within a facility must adhere to a strict set of safety regulations to maintain a safe working environment. The HSE has a bulk of safety regulation conformitys that all workplaces must follow. All machinery that has the potential to injure the operator or other workers must be safeguarded to control or eliminate the hazard.

Safeguards have key fundamentals that increase workplace safety; these are to detect or prevent entry to dangerous areas while eliminating hazards before they can present a danger. According to the OSHA, the following machinery locations require necessary safeguards to remain compliant:

  • The point of operation.
  • All parts of the machine which move, such as:
    • Flywheels, pulleys, belts, couplings, chains, cranks, gears.
    • Feed Mechanisms and auxiliary parts of the machine. 
  • In-running nip points.
  • To contain potential flying debris or sparks exiting a machine.

Along with the installation of machine guarding, workers should be trained to operate machinery to be as safe as possible. With the correct installation of safeguards helps employees feel more comfortable that the machinery in operation is safe, this achieves increases in productivity and reduced injuries.

The safeguarding that machinery requires can widely differ due to the changing environment, operation, and production requirements of manufacturing. Clients benefit from the bespoke manufacturing service we provide as their safeguard solution is tailored to their specifications and needs.
