An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Machine Guarding Program

Machine Guarding

      Before operating any machine, every employee must have completed a training program on safe methods of machine operations.  It is the primary purpose of supervision to ensure that employees are following safe machine operating  procedures.  There will be a regular program of safety inspection of machinery and equipment. 

      All machinery and equipment must be kept clean and properly maintained.  There must be sufficient clearance provided around and between machines to allow for safe operations, set up, servicing, material handling and waste removal. 

      All equipment and machinery should be securely placed, and anchored when necessary, to prevent tipping or other movement that could result in personal injury.  Most of the time, machinery should be bolted to the floor to prevent falling during an earthquake, and the electrical cord to the machinery fixed with a breaker or other shut-off device to stop power in case of machine movement. 

      There must be a power shut-off switch within reach of the operator's position at each machine.  Electrical power to each machine shall be capable of being locked out for maintenance, repair or security.  The non-current carrying metal parts of electrically operated machines must be bonded and grounded. 

      The foot-operated switches are guarded and/or arranged to prevent accidental actuation by personnel or falling objects.  All manually operated valves and switches controlling the operation of equipment and machines must be clearly identified and readily accessible.
