There seem to be as many hazards created by moving machine parts as there are types of machines, this training will help workers to protect themselves from moving machinery. Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from needless and preventable injuries. Any machine part, function, or process that may 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 hazard must be controlled or eliminated. This course focuses on the concepts behind safety guards, how to identify whether the guard is being used correctly, and the essential requirements for preventing machinery-related injuries. After completion of this course, workers will be able to properly apply the machine and machine guarding safety requirements in their day-to-day work activities. Machine guarding safety covers hand tools, electrical tools and large machinery which may potentially injure workers.
