Machine Guarding Consultants

Machine Guarding

OSHA and Minnesota OSHA have established standards for machine guarding. The state of Minnesota has placed emphasis on establishing best practices for the installation of machine guarding, particularly for schools. Both employees and students are at risk from unguarded parts of machinery, including belts, blades, fly-wheel shafts, pulleys, ropes, chain drives, gears and other machines.
