Preventing Cuts and Amputations from Food Slicers and Meat Grinders Safeguarding Measures Mobile App

Food slicers and meat grinders used in food service industries such as grocery stores, restaurants and delicatessens can cause serious cuts and amputations when workers operate, perform maintenance, or clean the machines. The Preventing Cuts and Amputations from Food Slicers and Meat Grinders Safeguarding Measures mobile app provides employers with the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and ways to prevent cuts and amputations in workplaces with food slicers and meat grinders.
