Machine Guarding

Prioritizing machine guarding not only ensures regulatory compliance but also safeguards your employees and business from avoidable risks and costs, emphasizing our commitment to safety in the workplace. Every year in Canada, approximately 2,500 people are injured due to machine-related incidents. Many of these injuries are preventable with proper machine guarding. 

Why Machine Guarding Matters

  • Preventable injuries: Lack of machine guarding leads to unnecessary injuries.
  • Legal requirements: Compliance with OSHA / OHSA regulations.
  • Financial implications: Avoid fines, medical expenses, and increased insurance premiums.
  • Safe work environment: Protect employees and minimize workplace accidents.

Common Machine Guarding Problems

  • Lack of Understanding: Many employers are unaware of machine guarding requirements.
  • Improper Design or Installation: Inexperienced designers may make mistakes during installation.
  • Failure to Consider All Risks: Comprehensive assessment involving various stakeholders is crucial.
  • Inadequate Maintenance: Without regular inspections, machine guards can become hazards.
  • Misplaced Responsibility: Employers must ensure proper machine guarding, not solely rely on manufacturers.

Our experienced professionals handle the design and installation of machine guards with precision and expertise. We conduct risk assessments to identify potential hazards and create effective guarding solutions tailored to your needs. With regular inspections and maintenance, we ensure ongoing safety and compliance with industry regulations.
