Machinery & Equipment Safety Checklist


In most industrial workplaces, one of the prime sources of safety hazards is the machinery and equipment the workers use. That’s why the OHS laws require employers to install guards on machinery and equipment to protect workers from pinchpoints and other dangerous areas, implement lockout/tagout procedures and take appropriate steps to protect workers from other hazards associated with the machinery.


Use this checklist to ensure that the machinery and equipment in your workplace meet all of the safety requirements under the OHS laws. Adapt the checklist for your workplace and its equipment and the requirements of the OHS laws in your jurisdiction, including any special requirements for the specific type of machinery.

All machinery and equipment should regularly be inspected using the checklist. If there’s an issue with one of the requirements, note the corrective action needed to address that issue.
