There seem to be as many hazards created by moving machine parts as there are types of machines. Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from needless and preventable injuries. Any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury must be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact with it can injure the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazard must be controlled or eliminated.
This course will help workers to protect themselves from moving machinery. After completion of this module, workers will be able to properly apply the OSHA Machine and Machine Guarding requirements to their day-to-day work activities.
