Machine Guard Training


Machinery
Machine guarding training can protect employees from hazards and save money. Also, you can reduce your insurance premiums without reducing your productivity. OSHA standards require that any equipment that can injure an employee must be either eliminated or controlled. Since you cannot eliminate the equipment, we have developed a partial day Machine Guarding course that will give all participants the tools to create a formal machine safety program. By educating your employees you will help prevent workplace accidents/injuries.

This course will ensure a comprehensive health and safety guarding standard can be put in place around machinery and equipment in the workplace. As with most our courses we have customized this course for illiteracy in the workplace, which of course cuts your training time in half.
Don’t be caught with on-site machinery that violates OSHA standards, the costs would far out reach the cost of training to educate and protect your employees.

Machine Guarding Course Content:


Participants will be able to successfully recognize basic types of hazards associated with Machinery and equipment processes (e.g. both Safety and Health related hazards)

  • Recognize and identify legal and other applicable standards and guidelines relevant to Machine Safety
  • Be able to recognize the contributing factors, such as hazardous mechanical components
  • Assess risk of workplace hazards: adequacy and existence of appropriate controls, undetected, hazards, incident severity and frequency considerations, etc.
  • Identify basic types of controls in a Machine Safety, Program: e.g. guards, procedures (e.g. lockout, ergonomic, chemical handling), other equipment/devices (e.g. personal controls)
  • Develop an Action Plan for implementing Machine, Safety Program

Employees should be able to recognize potential hazards while operating and caring for machinery. Dependant on your machinery each employee should know the following:

  • Machine set-up/threading/preparation
  • Machine inspection
  • Normal production operations
  • Clearing Jams
  • Machine adjustments
  • Cleaning of the machinery
  • Lubrication of the machinery
  • Scheduled and unscheduled maintenance

Proper machinery guarding will enhance the workplace health and safety program and keep your workplace hazards recognized and addressed expectantly. Be sure

Length: Two hours.

Who Should Attend Machine Guard Training?


Maintenance staff, engineering staff, intended“ Knowledgeable persons“ (Regulation 8), supervisors, safety coordinators and setup people. Any person(s) who will be maintaining, setting-up, cleaning machinery and / or equipment, and will be exposed to a hazard should the machine be engaged/ energized.

Our Lockout Tagout, punch press operator training or machine guard training are three of our other related osha training courses.
