Why effective machine guards are essential

Operating heavy machinery in a manufacturing environment calls for several safety considerations. Industrial  accidents happen daily, and it is the employers responsibility to make sure that  all safety and preventive measures are in place to ensure their employee’s safety. There are various safety measures that an employer can and should install in their facility so that the workers can work freely and smoothly without risk of accident. Of course, employees should trained to operate the machinery safely, but  they should also be trained to take up preventive measures to ensure that there are no hazards. Assessment of the machinery should be done in order to get an idea if they require machine guards or any extra parts for maintenance.

Different machines have different guards depending on the risk level. Machine guards can be static, movable or ready to assemble. The material with which machine guarding is made also depends upon the type of machinery. If you need machine guards to install around your machinery then you need to get your research done well because the safety of your employee’s is at stake, not to mention potential penalties if even a minor accident occurs!  Midland Industrial Maintenance ensures that you will get the proper  machine guards, that your employees safety is guaranteed, and that your equipment guarding will pass any safety audit.

The function of machine guards is to keep the body parts of employees away from hazardous parts of machines being operated and to eliminate risk of wounds, burns, electrocution, chemical splashes, hazardous vapours etc. The importance of having everything in order cannot be over estimated.

Midland Industrial Maintenance now produces complete solutions for increased machine safety. We are familiar with machine guarding requirements and can offer solutions that cover everything from risk analysis, dimensioning and layout proposals right through to a turnkey installation of machine guards with many unique advantages.
