Machinery and Machine Safeguarding Training Course (4 Hr.).


OSHA 29 CFR 1910.211 –Machinery & Machine Guarding through 1910.219; ANSI B11.0-2015 — Safety of Machinery; General Requirements & Risk Assessment; and B11.19-2015 — Machine Guarding Standards.  


This course covers the various types of common machinery, machine safe guards, and related OSHA regulations and procedures. Guidance is provided on the hazards associated with various types of machinery and the determination of proper machine safe guards. This course will cover the process to identify, select and properly safeguard machinery to protect employees and others in the work area and deliver appropriate training in safe work practices.

OSHA states that the employer shall certify that employees have been trained by preparing a certification record which includes the identity of the person trained, the signature of the employer or the person who conducted the training, and the date the training was completed. The certification record shall be prepared at the completion of training and shall be maintained on file for the duration of the employee’s employment. Amputations, crushed hands and arms, lacerations, abrasions and blindness are just a few of the possible injuries created by moving machine parts. Any machine part, function, or process which many cause injury must be safeguarded. When the operation of a machine or accidental contact with it can injure the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be either controlled or eliminated. This training program will address general requirements for machine safeguarding as mandated by OSHA. This training is intended for all persons working in or around machinery with hazards such as those created by point of operation, ingoing nip points, rotating parts, flying chips and sparks. Designed to help employees understand the dangers of working with machinery—and how those risks can be minimized by proper installation and use of safety guards and devices 

Course topics include:

• types of machinery requiring guarding; • point of operation; • emergency eyewash/shower requirements; • basic machine operations; • fixed guards; • adjustable and self-adjusting guards; • interlock devices; • drive train and perimeter guards; • “drop probe” devices; • restrain and pullback devices; • adjustment, inspection and maintenance of safety guards; • OSHA machinery and machine guarding standards violations; • corrective actions.

Certificate upon completion.
