Machine Guarding Audits

Machines can help improve production efficiency in the workplace. However, their moving parts, sharp edges, and hot surfaces can also cause serious workplace injuries such as crushed fingers or hands, amputations, burns, or blindness. Safeguards are essential to protect workers from injury. Any machine part, function, or process that might cause injury should be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine may result in a contact injury to the operator or others in the area, the hazard should be removed or controlled.

Perimeter and close fit mechanical guarding is an effective means of preventing human contact with dangerous machinery or hazardous processes.

To ensure compliance with the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER):

1.Access to any dangerous part of machinery must be prevented, or

2. The movement of dangerous machinery must be stopped before a person enters a danger zone

The Regulations specify the measures which should be taken to prevent access to dangerous machinery and are ranked in the following order:

1. Provide fixed enclosing guards

2. Provide other guards or protection devices such as interlock guards, light curtains or pressure mats etc..

3. Provide protection appliances such as jigs, holders, push sticks etc.

4. Provide information, instruction and training supervisions
