  27. 27. Basics of Machine Safeguarding • There seems to be as many hazards created by moving machine parts as there are types of machines. • Safeguards are essential for protecting workers from needless and preventable injuries 27 Four slide machine
  28. 28. Basics of Machine Safeguarding • All machines consist of three fundamental areas • the point of operation, • the power transmission device • the operating controls This plastic injection molding machine has an interlocked guard protecting the point of operation.
  29. 29. Basics of Machine Safeguarding • The point of operation is where work is performed on the material, such as cutting, shaping, boring, or forming of stock. A forming press would need guards or light curtains to prevent entry during operations.
  30. 30. Nip Point • Nip point - location where machine pieces come together such as belts and a pulley, two in-running rollers, etc. • Also called the Bite 30
  31. 31. Basics of Machine Safeguarding • The power transmission apparatus is all components of the mechanical system which transmit energy to the part of the machine performing the work. • These components include flywheels, pulleys, belts, connecting rods, couplings, cams, spindles, chains, cranks, and gears. Many deaths have occurred when caught in the unguarded rotating shafts of equipment.
  32. 32. Basics of Machine Safeguarding • Motions Rotating: in-running nip points, spindles, shaft ends, couplings Reciprocating: back-and-forth, up-and-down Transverse: movement in a straight, continuous line • Operations Cutting: bandsaws, drills, milling machines, lathes Punching: punch presses, notchers Shearing: mechanical, pneumatic, or hydraulic shears Bending: press brakes, tube benders, plate rolls
  33. 33. ANSI B Series • The user shall ensure that set-up and maintenance personnel and operators are trained to perform the functions for which they are responsible. 33
  34. 34. ANSI B Series The user shall designate, provide, and ensure the use of at least one of the following methods of safeguarding that affords protection for the operator, consistent with the requirements of the task: • guard(s) • safeguarding device(s) • awareness barrier(s) or awareness device(s) • safe work procedure(s). 34

  41. 41. Principles of Machine Guarding • Safe Distance - 7’ rule of belts, etc. • Guards - employees can’t get in hazardous area through the use of barriers. • Table 0-10 for guard opening design (next page) • Devices - Presence sensing mats, pullbacks, light curtains, restraints 41
  42. 42. Table O-10 • Distance of opening from the point of operation hazard (in inches) • 1/2 to 1 1/2 • 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 • 2 1/2 to 3 ½ • 3 1/2 to 5 ½ • 5 1/2 to 6 ½ • 6 1/2 to 7 ½ • 7 1/2 to 12 ½ • 12 1/2 to 15 ½ • 15 1/2 to 17 ½ • 17 1/2 to 31 ½ • Maximum width of opening (in inches) • ¼ • 3/8 • ½ • 5/8 • ¾ • 7/8 • 1 ¼ • 1 ½ • 1 7/8 • 2 1/8 42
  43. 43. Types of Machine Safeguards • Barriers and guards • Mechanical or electronic devices that restrict contact, such as presence- sensing, restraining, or tripping devices, two-hand controls, or gates. • Feeding and ejection methods that eliminate part handling in the hazard zone. 43
  44. 44. Light Curtains • Some amputations are linked to machine failure, such as failure of a single-stroke linkage resulting in a "double cycle," electronic failure of two-hand controls, brake failure resulting in the slide falling, and jammed relays in light curtains. 44
  45. 45. • Unguarded nip points, rotating parts • No P.O.O. Guarding • Tongue grinder ¼” • Work Rest 1/8” • Unguarded pulleys • Unguarded Vertical Belts • Chain and sprocket not guarded • Lower blade guard radial arm saw • No punch press inspection records • Unguarded horizontal belts 45 Most Cited
  46. 46. Amputations Most Wanted 46
  47. 47. Circular Saws • Lower blade guard required • Clean saw and blade to prevent guard from sticking • Aurora 1998 - 100+ stitches from saw 47
  48. 48. Circular saw • Employee #1 was cutting 2x4 sections with the saw in his right hand, and he was using his left hand to position the wood. • Employee #1 made a cut across the wood and his right foot stepped on the power cord, causing the saw to shift its direction and cut his left hand. • Employee #1 will regain full function of his left fingers, but he will suffer some nerve damage in his thumb. 48
  49. 49. Vertical Bandsaw • Adjustable guard to height of product • Many injuries by guiding product into POO • Handling cold slippery products will increase chances of slipping into POO • Consider tools or “no Touch” 49
  50. 50. Horizontal Bandsaw • Unused portion of blade need to be guarded • No oversized blades used 50
  51. 51. Any Issues? 51
  52. 52. Radial Arm Saw • Lower blade awareness device • Retracts to original position • Does not extend past plane of table • Anti-kick back device 52
  53. 53. Radial Arm saw • June 30, 2008, • Employee was using a radial arm saw to cut a piece of 2-in. by 6-in. lumber for a Truss brace. • Using the radial arm saw mounted on a bench, he placed the piece of lumber beneath the 16-in. blade holding it with his left hand. • The running saw vibrated forward and struck the lumber, amputating the small finger in the process. 53
  54. 54. Table Saws • Top guard • Magnetic restart • Spreader • Push sticks • Anti-kick device 54
  55. 55. Table saw On December 29, 2011, Employee #1, a 29-year-old male was operating a Sears brand hand-fed table saw in the rear of facility. Employee #1 was ripping about two- inches off one end of pine boards, and the board momentarily paused close to the end of the cut and then went forward. 55
  56. 56. Chop Saw • Lower blade awareness device • Speed marked on saw • Clean saw blades to prevent varnish/sap buildup 56
  57. 57. Conveyors • Emergency stops placed • ANSI B20.1 • In-running nip points guarded by fixed guards • This elevator section unguarded 57

Lathes 2010 - 2012 • While working in the Laboratory’s machine shop, Michele’s hair got caught in one of the shop’s wood lathes, On November 9, 2010, Employee #1 was working on a lathe machine. He caught his clothing in the machine. A witness to the incident said, that somehow, Employee #1 worked his way out of the lathe; however, due to the force of him pulling away from the machine, he fell to the concrete, hit his head, and was killed. 70
  71. 71. Lathes • February 24, 2012, Employee #1, a 45-year-old lathe operator, was moving product from an external inspection area to lathe operation area. • He reached across the protruding stack which was being run when the lathe caught his jacket, pulling him into the rotation cycle. • He died of his injuries 10 days after the accident. 71
  72. 72. Issues? 72
  73. 73. Auctioned or Used Machines • Often missing guards • Employer must guard even if not designed with them • Consult ANSI standard applicable 73
