Abstract:

All machinery needs to be adequately guarded at all times and machinery and guarding must be maintained in a safe working condition. A critical aspect of machine guarding is to ensure workers cannot reach past the guarding into the machine. This guide covers the key principles of how to work out safe separation distances for guarding, taking into account an operator’s ability to reach into the machine or past the guarding.
