Innovative Ag Services Co. (IAS), focuses on safety every day. This month our safety topic is Machine Guarding. A guard is any shield, cover, casing or physical barrier which, by reason of its form or its location, is intended to prevent contact between that machine part and a person, or part of that person’s clothing.
Guarding aims to increase the personal safety of operators and others involved in the normal operation, servicing and maintenance of machines. When using machines, an operator may reach over, under, around or through the machine. Any hazards that you could encounter must be fitted with appropriate guarding.
