According to MSHA regulations, moving machine parts must be guarded to protect individuals from contacting gears, sprockets, chains, drive, pulleys, shafts, and other moving parts that can cause injury. Guards are not required when the exposed moving parts are at least 7 feet from walking or working surfaces.

The document provides examples of good guarding practice and compliance information. It is a sequel to a compliance guide for guarding conveyor belts published in 2010. The publication is available at www.MSHA.gov. Search “guarding machinery.”
