3020 – 11 – Location-Based Safeguards
Safeguards can be shield devices, but location is another key way to safeguard machines. When guarding by location, shops use physical space to keep workers away from dangerous machine components. Some shops erect walls or fences to keep workers away form hazardous machinery. Even if machine guards are also used, separating the workers from the point of operation is always a good idea.
When you cannot create distance or build a fence, awareness barriers, like bright yellow stripes on the floor or caution tape, can safeguard the area. Bright indicators like these ensure that employees know they’re entering a dangerous area.
