How long has it been since you REALLY looked at machine guarding at your facility? Was it the last time you had an accident? An ongoing machine guarding program is the best approach and should be part of a comprehensive Health and Safety program. We have tools to help you build a solid program and above all, maintain it.
• Develop a Complete Inventory and Setting PrioritiesThe first task is to develop an inventory of equipment and processes that may create a guarding issue. Use an inventory log to stage and prioritize all the items.
• Assessment Tools and a System to Evaluate Risk
Our step-by-step machine guarding review covers mechanical, electrical and controls. It also enables you to perform a proper risk assessment of each machine.
• Recommendations to Eliminate Exposures
We provide recommendations designed to eliminate exposure in the most effective and least expensive way.
• Training Programs for Employees
We provide the “must have" training for your employees that are exposed to machine hazards. Training is also provided to employees that are responsible for ensuring machines are properly evaluated and guarded.
•Sample Written Program
As part of any health and safety program, machine guarding must be addressed. We have a model program that can easily be adapted to your facility.
