National Machine Accident Attorneys

Machine-related injuries are very common, but these accidents can be prevented. There are safety rules about machine guarding mandated by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). Unfortunately, these rules are often ignored, exposing workers to life-threatening dangers. In fact, failing to properly guard machines is one of the top 10 reasons that employers are cited for OSHA violations.

What is Machine Guarding?

OSHA requires a shield or device to cover hazardous areas of a machine. This shield is designed to prevent contact with body parts. It also helps to control hazards associated with these machines, including flying wood or metal chips and loud, ear-damaging noise.

If not properly guarded, machines such as those listed below can cause severe crushing or amputation injuries:

  • Guillotine cutters
  • Bailers
  • Alligator shears and other types of shears
  • Power presses
  • Mill machinery
  • Various handheld power tools
  • Power saws
  • Jointers
  • Forming rolls and calendars
  • Shredders
