From crushed hands and fingers to the loss of a limb or damaged vision, the results of unsafe work practices with machinery can be devastating. All employees who operate or repair machinery should understand how the guarding functions, in order to use the equipment correctly and recognize if something is in need of repair or maintenance.
One of our latest Video On Demand titles, “Machine Safeguarding” demonstrates for workers how they can safely get their job done, while preventing accidents and injuries. The course walks workers through a discussion of hazards, safeguards, awareness, and safe use of machinery.
