INDUSTRIAL SAFETY FENCING & LIGHT CURTAINS

Protect Your Employees and Avoid Huge OSHA Fines
Semi and fully automatic pallet wrapping machines help improve efficiencies while decreasing the labor required to wrap a pallet. However, like all moving machinery, accidents can and do occur. In 2006, an employee got their fingertip amputated when caught in a pinch point between the shrink wrapping machine and the loading ramp. OSHA wound up fining the company $15,731 for two major violations.
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.212(a)(1) provides general requirements for all machines:
Types of guarding. One or more methods of machine guarding shall be provided to protect the operator and other employees in the machine area from hazards such as those created by point of operation, ingoing nip points, rotating parts, flying chips and sparks. Examples of guarding methods are-barrier guards, two-hand tripping devices, electronic safety devices, etc.
Forklift and shrink wrapping injuries are two of the most common industrial accidents. Forklift and stretch wrapper safety guards from Handle It can help decrease the chances of injuries to your workers—and the potential for a huge fine from OSHA.
