Machine Guarding Program
According to the National Safety Council, 15 percent of all work injuries and 20 percent of disabling work injuries involve machines. Moving machine parts have the potential to cause severe workplace injuries, such as crushed hands or fingers, amputations, burns or blindness. Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from these preventable injuries.
The purpose of Machine Gurading Program is to ensure the safety of our employees by establishing appropriate machine safeguarding procedures for any machine part, function or process that may cause injury.
