Point of Operation Incidents
April 14, 2020 - April 15, 2020
There are three areas where a machine’s moving parts can create potential hazards.Within the “drive train” itself (the moving parts that power the machine).
At the machine’s “perimeter” (the area around a machine where a worker could be injured by things like flying debris and swinging “arms”).
At the “points of operation” (where the machine’s mechanical energy is used to cut, bend, move or otherwise process materials).
These are the areas that we need to pay particular attention to when we’re near any powered equipment.
