Certificate in OSHA Compliance

Machine Guarding

Machine guarding ranks among the Top 10 of OSHA citations issued, possibly because the regulation can be confusing. Don't let confusion get in the way of compliance.

The National Safety Council's Machine Guarding Compliance Training course will help you sort it out. Through discussion and activities, our professional facilitator will break down the regulation into terms you can understand. In just four hours, you'll learn practices and procedures that will keep you in compliance and, best of all, protect your employees.

The course covers:

  • Each section of OSHA 1910 Subpart O Machinery and Machine Guarding (1910.211 - 1910.219) in detail
  • Basic concepts, principles and methods of machine guarding
  • Common causes of machine incidents and how to avoid them
  • Which areas should be guarded to provide adequate worker protection
  • Best practices - how to apply basic guarding principles when specific issues aren't covered in the regulation

What you'll learn:

  • Understand the key elements of the regulation and the basics of guarding principles and construction
  • Recognize the importance of machine guarding to preventing injuries
  • Apply the regulation to specific types of equipment in your workplace
  • Identify the hazards associated with various types of machinery and equipment
