Why take a machine guarding quiz

Machine guarding is a critical safety practice for all businesses – but it can be particularly hazardous in the manufacturing and construction industries. Machinery can cause serious injuries if someone is struck by it or caught in its moving parts, so it’s important that workers are aware of the dangers and know how to properly guard machines. Regulations around machine guarding can be confusing, so we’ve put together this quiz to help your team understand the basics. The quiz covers the different types of machine guarding, such as barriers, shields, and guards, and explains when they are required. It also covers lockout/tagout procedures, which are essential for preventing injuries when machinery is being serviced or repaired. With this quiz, your team can be sure that they are meeting all the requirements for machine guarding and keeping themselves and others safe in the workplace.
