Machine Guarding

Machine Guarding

If you work around machines and equipment for any length of time, you will no doubt notice that they usually have guards on them. It may be that you think of these guards as more of a block to you doing your work than a protective device for your safety. Take, for example, the case of a worker who needed to clean his machine. He was having trouble getting to the machine's components, so he quickly removed the guard, intending to put it right back when he was done. While he was cleaning, his hand slipped and he ended up cutting off his own finger. He had gotten so used to seeing the guards that he took their purpose for granted. They were not in place to keep him from doing his work efficiently – they were in place to PROTECT him. Your employer doesn't want anything like this to happen to you! That's why you're taking this training – so you can learn about the types of machine hazards around you and the guards that are available and in place to keep you safe.
