Course Description
Safeguarding requirements vary from machine to machine, depending on physical features and the level of operator involvement needed. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s Machinery and Machine Guard standard, 29 CFR 1910 Subpart O, outlines important definitions and requirements that employers must follow to provide a safe workplace.

Workers who get caught in machines can suffer crushing injuries, fractures, sprains, strains, tears, lacerations, bruises, amputations, burns, blindness, or death. You can prevent these incidents by using machine guards properly. These shields, devices, or other safety features cover the hazardous areas, functions, or processes of machinery, keeping them from harming operators or others nearby.

Even the most elaborate safeguarding system cannot offer effective protection unless the worker knows how to use it and why. Specific and detailed training is, therefore, a, therefore, the art of any effort to provide safeguarding against machine-related hazards.

This kind of safety training is necessary for new operators and maintenance or setup personnel, when any new or altered safeguards are put in service, or when workers are assigned to a new machine or operation.
