OSHA Amputation: Commonly Used Machine Guards Safeguarding Measures Mobile App
Guards must not create additional hazards such as pinch points or shear points between guards and other machine parts.
How does it work?
Guard openings should be small enough to prevent employees from accessing danger areas. Use the OSHA Amputation: Commonly Used Machine Guards Safeguarding Measures mobile app to help implement safety protocols on your worksite. In some cases, guarding may be used as an alternative to lockout/tagout because employees can safely service or maintain machines with a guard in place.
