WE43: Real World Machine Safety – A Practical Guide to Injury Prevention and OSHA Compliance for Small Businesses

Scott Swaaley, MAKESafe Tools

This workshop takes a practical hands-on approach to machine safeguarding for small manufacturing businesses and distills decades of experience and research into a handful of concepts and small projects that are practical for even the smallest mom-and-pop shop. We all want to be safe around machinery, but complying with OSHA requirements can feel like a hopelessly complex endeavor. This workshop covers simple “must-have” safeguards that are applicable to nearly all machines, explains why the requirements exist through visual interactive examples on real in-workshop machinery, then provides actionable next-steps and practical advice for how to implement these safety projects at your own shop.
