The Importance of Machine Guarding
Last year an employee of Pan Pac Forest was working at clearing jammed laths when a co-worker turned on a piece of machinery, not knowing that a fellow employee was nearby, crushing the other man's ankle.
Investigations into the company found that Pan Pac failed to adequately isolate the hazards associated with the machinery.
In light of accidents like this one, it is so important that employers provide machinery isolation and a lockout system to their machines. By installing these systems they greatly reduce the amount of injuries and the risk of injury to their employees.
Employee safety is very important and every measure should be utilized to ensure a safe working environment for everyone.
