As you probably know, OSHA publishes a list list of the ten most commonly cited standard violations every year. Here’s OSHA’s Top Ten Citations List for 2016. Machine Guarding, 1910.212, is #8 on the list for 2016, and so we’ve got some online machine guarding training resources for you in this article–plus more.
In many or most years, it’s the same standards on the list time and time again (the Machine Guarding standard is one of those that appears year after year). And as a result, we’ve pulled together a series of blogs to help you train your workers about each of the ten most cited standards. This blog is part of that series, and so we’ve got a bunch of materials to help with machine guarding. We’ve got a sample of our own online machine guarding training plus much, much more for you.
Let us know if you’ve got some other resources you’d suggest. The comments field awaits.
