OSHA Amputation: Drill Presses Safeguarding Measures Mobile App
Working with drill presses can be dangerous if used improperly.
How does it work?
That is why it is critical to adhere to drill press safety requirements and to use them only as intended.
The OSHA Amputation: Drill Presses Safeguarding Measures Safeguarding Measures mobile app provides safeguards specific to Drill Presses. Electric drill presses use a rotating bit to drill or cut holes in wood or metal that may be cut to a desired preset depth or completely through the stock. A basic drill press operation consists of selecting an appropriate drill bit, tightening the bit in the chuck, setting the drill depth, placing the material on the drill press bed, securing the work to the bed so that it will not rotate during drilling, turning the drill press on, and pulling the drill press lever down so that the drill bit will be lowered into the stock. Throughout this process, there are certain do's and don'ts that should be kept in mind. This app points out all of these items in an easy-to-follow ordered list.
