Today I'd like to talk to you about Machine Guarding. Any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury must be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact injure the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be eliminated or controlled. Our knowledge and experience will assist you to comply with Machine Guarding standards and regulations. Below are a few articles that I think will be of help to you.

Sincerely,
Colin J. Brigham, CIH, CSP, CPE, CPEA, CSPHP, VP Safety Management & Ergonomics
