Abstract:
This guide can help you identify and manage common amputation hazards associated with the operation and care of machines. The first two sections of the document, Recognizing Amputation Hazards and Controlling Amputation Hazards, look at sources of amputations and how to safeguard machinery and control employee exposure to hazardous energy (lockout/tagout) during machine servicing and maintenance activities. The section on Specific Machinery Hazards and Safeguarding Methods identifies the hazards and various control methods for machinery
associated with workplace amputations, such as: mechanical power presses, press brakes, conveyors, printing presses, roll-forming and roll-bending machines, shears, food slicers, meat grinders, meat cutting band saws, drill presses, milling machines, grinding machines, and slitting machines.
