Machine Safety

Machine Safety Machine operators are at increased risk for certain machine injuries, including amputation. OSHA provides standards of safety for machine guarding during operation and machine lockout during maintenance. The role of the occupational health nurse in machine safety is to conduct worksite analyses to identify proper safeguarding and to communicate deficiencies to appropriate personnel; to train workers in safe work practices and observe compliance in the use of machine guards; to provide care for workers injured by machines, especially in managing amputations; and to reinforce safe work practices among machine operators. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png AAOHN Journal SAGE
