1 Machine Guarding MODULE 19

2 2©2006 TEEX What hazards exist? Crushed by or drawn into equipment Struck by moving parts Struck by failed components or particles

3 3©2006 TEEX Key parts of machines 1.Point of operation: where work is performed on the material, such as cutting, shaping, boring, or forming of stock. 2.Power Transmission Device: transmits energy to the part of the machine performing the work Includes flywheels, pulleys, belts, connecting rods, couplings, cams, spindles, chains, cranks, and gears.

4 4©2006 TEEX Key parts of machines 3.Operation Controls: Control mechanisms 4.Other moving parts: can include reciprocating, rotating, and transverse moving parts, feed mechanisms, and auxiliary parts of the machine

5 5©2006 TEEX Hazards to be Guarded Things to guard include In-running nip points Rotating equipment Flying chips or sparks Belts or gears Parts that impact or shear

6 6©2006 TEEX Rotating Parts Can grip hair or clothing Can force the body into a dangerous position Projecting pieces increase risk

7 7©2006 TEEX In-Running Nip Points Between 2 rotating parts Between rotating and tangential parts Between rotating and fixed parts which shear, crush, or abrade

8 8©2006 TEEX Reciprocating Parts Risk of being struck between stationary and moving part

9 9©2006 TEEX Transverse motion Continuous straight line motion Worker struck or caught in pinch or shear point

10 10©2006 TEEX Cutting action Direct injury from cutting action Flying chips or sparks Saws, drills, lathes, mills

11 11©2006 TEEX Punching action Ram stamps materials Danger at point of operation

12 12©2006 TEEX Shearing action Powered blade that shears materials Hazard at point of operation

13 13©2006 TEEX Bending action Power applied to a slide to stamp/shape materials Hazard at point of operation

14 14©2006 TEEX Guarding Principles Prevent contact between hazardous moving parts and body or clothing Secure guard: not easily removed Protect from objects falling into machinery No new hazards: sharp/rough edges No interference with job/comfort/speed Allow safe lubrication: without removing guards if possible

15 15©2006 TEEX Guarding Methods Location / distance Guards Fixed Interlocked Adjustable Self-adjusting

16 16©2006 TEEX Guarding Methods Devices Presence sensing Pullback Restraint Safety controls (tripwire cable, two-hand control, etc.) Gates
