Machine Guarding provides an OSHA-based comprehensive overview of general machine safeguarding practices associated with hazardous machine components, motions, and actions. In general, machine guards and safeguarding devices are considered primary safeguards against amputation and other injuries. Yet, feeding, ejection, and location are types of secondary safeguarding methods used in combination with guards and safeguarding devices.Machine guarding is particularly important during times of inspection and maintenance. Hidden hazards from potential energy put an operator at risk even when a machine is turned off. To safeguard against this and human error, lockout/tagout procedures provide a strict set of safety guidelines for everyone to follow when performing maintenance tasks. After taking this course, users will be able to identify various machine motion hazards in the workplace and develop effective safeguarding strategies to prevent injuries.
