    Basic Machine Shop Safety And Maintenance Tips Basic Machine Shop Safety And Maintenance Tips Presentation Transcript

    • •Setting up and running a machine shop isn't easy. There are many things to consider before even beginning to use the equipment in a machine shop. Here are the procedures to follow to ensure safety and to keep the machine shop running efficiently.
    • 1. All machine tool operators must be trained in the use of the machines they will be using. Check references and records to be sure all workers are properly qualified.
    •  Personnel must always wear closed-toe shoes, and should wear steel-toe safety shoes when carrying or working with heavy objects or tools.  Long hair must be tied back and completely out of the way.  No neckties, dangling jewelry, or loose-fitting sleeves are allowed in most machine shops.  Eye protection is mandatory in the machine shop.  Ear protection may be required depending on how loud the equipment is.
    •  1. Equipment must be inspected and lubricated properly every week.  2. Sharpening and cutting tools such as drill bits, end mills, and lathe turning tools must be inspected every week and sharpened when necessary. An inspection and sharpening logbook should be kept and updated each week.  3. Every month milling machines must be inspected and properly aligned.  4. Because dirt is a major cause of machine misalignment and malfunction, machines should be cleaned after every use by the person who used the equipment. That person should also pick up any debris and dispose of it properly.  5. Hand tools and measuring tools must be returned to their designated places after each use.
    •  Machine shops employ powerful, heavy machinery that can be dangerous if used by unqualified workers or if used in an unsafe manner.  Safety and maintenance must be top priorities for the machine shop employees and supervisor.  Every worker must be trained in safety measures and must remain alert at all times to prevent accidents and damage to equipment and tools.
