Implement an Effective Machine Guarding Program Through Hazard Recognition, Employee Involvement, Management Commitment and an Effective Safety & Health Program.

"The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) identifies machine guarding injuries as causing crushed fingers or hands, amputation, burns, or blindness. For a company with a 3% profit margin, one burn can cost the business on average of $78, 516 total cost. An amputation for that same business would cost an average of $140,231. However, to pay both injuries, with a 3% profit margin, the business would have to increase sales $7.291 Million (Source: OSHA Safety Pays Program:"

This course by expert speaker Sheldon Primus will reveal how to have an effective machine guarding program through hazard recognition, employee involvement, management commitment, and an effective safety and health (S & H) program. Every employee should be aware of various contributing factors that might occur from machinery use. The webinar will uncover some top issues which surround the problems of amputation, worker burns and other injuries.

Machine guarding is an underrated safety concern for some employers. It is more than just keeping the guard on when the worker is on the equipment. Each workplace must address the psychology of unsafe behaviors and inadequate S & H programs. The safety culture of the company will dictate the collective attitudes on a safe workplace. How a company handle the issue of machine guarding can be a barometer to gauge its' culture. This session will be a valuable addition to the overall knowledge base on the hazards related to machine guarding.
