Machine guarding : How to protect your employees ?

There will never be enough safety measures to protect your personnel. Numerous methods including personal protective equipment are used to protect employees collectively and individually, but what about the equipment? The Machine guarding ? All types of equipment can be hazardous to employees, cause injuries and lead to sick leaves and a decrease in productivity.

The use of equipment causes risks such as:
Projections (debris, projectiles, sparks, drops…)
Emanations (fumes, heat…)
Accidental spills (liquids…)
Mechanical movements
Visibility (active and passive)
Fatigue
