Machine Safety

Machine safety in the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) context involves implementing measures to prevent accidents and injuries caused by machinery or equipment in the workplace. It encompasses various strategies, including machine guarding, safety interlocks, emergency stop mechanisms, and regular maintenance to ensure equipment operates safely. Risk assessments, proper training for operators, and clear safety protocols are essential for identifying hazards and mitigating risks associated with machinery operation. Adherence to safety standards, ongoing evaluations of equipment safety features, and creating a culture of safety awareness among workers are integral elements in maintaining a safe working environment concerning machine safety within an OHS framework.
