Machine guarding is one of the most effective ways to reduce machine-related injuries in the workplace. At the same time, guards are not permanent fixtures, as they need to be removed from time to time – typically during repair and maintenance work. These tasks require the machines to be disassembled either partially or fully, in which case the removal of guards becomes unavoidable.

California is one of the most proactive states nationally when it comes to health and safety. However, the harsh reality is that workers in the country continue to get injured or killed from the same job hazards that have been causing the same kinds of injuries and wrongful deaths for decades.
Machine accidents often cause severe and life-altering injuries like amputations, blindness, head trauma, burns, and deaths. These accidents often occur because machine manufacturers, employers, and operators ignore safety rules.
Machine accidents are almost entirely avoidable if the employers put adequate safeguards in place and follow common sense laws.
