Many metalworking machines used in industry today lack the guards and safety devices to prevent their operators from being seriously injured. The presenter outlines the recently updated American National Standards Institute B11 Safety Standards to explain how employers can use guards, devices and other methods to prevent injuries. Included are interlocked guards, covers, shields, light curtains, laser devices, awareness devices, two-hand controls and electrical updates for disconnects, motor starters, emergency stops and more.

Learning Objectives:
Recognize hazards on the machines in your plant and how to minimize those exposures
Describe what a proper guard should look like, whether point of operation or perimeter
Discuss the basics of how to function-test your safeguarding before each operating shift
Explain the importance of having risk assessments in place for each machine
