Machine Guarding Checklist

Having safety guards on all equipment fall under OSHA’s machine guarding requirements. This checklist is adapted from those regulations and covers five main areas of machine protection:

  • General requirements
  • Mechanical hazards
  • Electrical hazards
  • Training
  • Maintenance

Your team can use the checklist to ensure that all equipment is properly outfitted with safety guards. Any questions that are answered with the response “no,” should prompt your team to stop operation of the equipment until all guards are in place.
