The importance of Machine Safety
The health and safety of employees, visitors, customers and suppliers continues to evolve with changing legislation and safety technology. Moreover, your safety systems and practices could be the difference between financial uncertainty or stability.
- People can be struck and injured by moving parts of machinery or ejected material. Parts of the body can also
be drawn in or trapped between rollers, belts and pulley drives
- Sharp edges can cause cuts and severing injuries, sharp-pointed parts can cause stabbing or puncture the skin,
and rough surface parts can cause friction or abrasion
- People can be crushed, both between parts moving together or towards a fixed part of the machine, wall or other
object, and two parts moving past one another can cause shearing
- Parts of the machine, materials and emissions (such as steam or water) can be hot or cold enough to cause burns
or scalds and electricity can cause electrical shock and burns
- Injuries can also occur due to machinery becoming unreliable and developing faults or when machines are used
improperly through inexperience or lack of training
