Course Description: This class familiarizes the student with various types of common machinery and their related safety standards, and the control of hazardous energy sources (lockout/tagout). The course presents an approach to machinery inspection that enables participants to recognize hazards and to provide options to achieve abatement, including those for mechanical motions and actions created by points of operation and other machinery processes. Includes practice on identifying and mitigating machinery hazards.
Also covered will be OSHA’s Emphasis Program on Amputations, which applies to general industry workplaces where any machinery and equipment that are likely to cause amputations are present. The operation of machinery and equipment can be extremely dangerous. Injuries involving machinery and equipment often result in death or permanent disability.
OSHA’s more than 40-year inspection experience indicates that employee exposures to unguarded or inadequately guarded machinery and equipment, together with associated hazardous energy employee exposures during servicing and maintenance activities, occur in many workplaces. OSHA workplace requirements prescribe measures for the safe operation, servicing and maintenance of machinery and equipment.
Note: Personal protective equipment required for field trip (safety shoes, safety glasses, and clothing appropriate for field exercise.) Please contact the OSHA Education Center if you do not have access to PPE.
