Machine Guard Safety Video and DVD Excerpt: Every day we use machinery to make our jobs simpler andeasier. With all of the positive things that machinery can accomplish it’s easyto forget that it can also be dangerous. In fact each year machine accidentsresult in thousands of serious injuries, and hundreds of deaths. Yet many ofthese accidents could have easily been avoided through the correct use ofmachine guards and safety devices. Just like a boxer who uses his hands andarms to defend himself machine safety guards create barriers that protect youfrom danger. This is protection you can’t do without because all machineryregardless of its size or speed can present hazards such as moving parts thatcan cut or crush, flying debris that can blind, and material that can kick backand cause severe injuries. Machine guards and safety devices protect workers byreducing their exposure to hazards, but before we begin talking about specificguards and devices we need to recognize where machine hazards are most likelyto occur. Let’s start by looking at the different motions a machine can make.This will help us to identify potential hazards, and understand how machineguards and safety devices can be used to contain them.
