Once the risk assessment has been performed, the methods and techniques to be applied to reach the maximum risk reduction level will be the focus.  When the hazard cannot be eliminated, design measures to properly reduce the risk to the hazard to an acceptable level will be shared.  Expected functionality and practicality of the selected safeguarding applications include the selection of the prescribed safety standards currently available.  
Participants will learn:

  • Selecting the prescribed safety standards
  • Understanding the key factors of proper guard design
  • Utilizing the proper guarding methods and techniques
  • Recognizing proper guarding vs. awareness barriers
  • Applying color coding and safety signs
