Stay OSHA Compliant with State-of-the-Art Machine Guarding


Machine guarding is a type of safety equipment that helps protect individuals from being injured when operating machinery. It can include guards, covers, fences, and other physical barriers that physically separate the operator from the hazards associated with the machines they are using. OSHA, or The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is an agency within the US Department of Labor that sets and enforces safety standards for businesses. Machine guarding is essential for business owners in applicable industries because it ensures a safe environment for employees and OSHA compliance for the business.

Machine Guarding Applications

Machine guards are necessary in a variety of commercial and industrial settings, including chemical plants, steel mills, foundries, food processing facilities, and plastic production centers. Any workplace that uses motorized equipment requires machine guarding to comply with OSHA safety standards.
