Machine guards and machine guarding refers to a shield or device that covers the hazardous areas of a machine. These guards prevent contact between the machine’s moving parts and a worker’s body or extremities. Machine guards can also be used to control the exit of debris or noise from a machine.
Machine guarding protects employees while operating a particular piece of machinery, or while working near industrial equipment and machines.
Local law enforcement agencies are investigating the accident, and OSHA will get involved this week.
