INTRODUCTION FOR MACHINE SAFETY

In industries, machines serve useful for performing different tasks such as product manufacturing, packaging, etc. However, operating unguarded machinery can expose workers to hazards. Hazards associated with working near or on machinery vary depending on the exact machine used but can cause a host of injuries to operators ranging from; moving parts, sharp edges, steam or hot water, to faults or when machines are used improperly through inexperience or lack of training. Because of this machinery safety training is enshrined in factory and machine act 1967 and for those who own or manage engineering and manufacturing firms are responsible for ensuring machine and equipment safety. This includes machine safety training for operatives, initially and then periodically, as well as for their managers. Anyone dealing with plant and machinery should have one thing above all: up-to-date information on machinery safety, plant safety, work safety and operational safety. Furthermore, this is the legal duty as stipulated under the occupational health act 1994
