Machine Safeguarding Training for Employees – Online Course
Every year workers across the U.S. suffer from injuries sustained from unguarded or inadequately guarded moving machine parts. Employee exposure to such hazards is prevalent in many workplaces. Amputations, crushed hands and arms, lacerations, abrasions and blindness are just a few of the possible injuries created by moving machine parts.
It is estimated that approximately 18,000 injuries and over 800 deaths occur each year among workers who operate and maintain machinery.
Any machine part, function, or process which many 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 hazards must be either controlled or eliminated. Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from needless and preventable injuries.
