Machine Guarding
National Summary

This topic covers OSHA’s machine guarding regulations, which are designed to protect workers from injuries resulting from accidental contact with machinery.

OSHA’s machine guarding standard requires that any machine part, function, or process that may cause injury be guarded. Hazards that must be guarded include point of operation hazards, nip points, rotating parts, flying chips, and sparks; guarding methods include barrier guards, two-hand tripping devices, and electronic safety devices. OSHA has general machine guarding regulations as well as specific requirements for various types of machinery.
