Defective machines result in one of the most common causes of injuries in the workplace.  Injuries from defective machines, including ‘machine guarding injuries’, are often severe.  Victims may suffer from lacerations, burns, crushed body parts, amputations, brain injuries,  blindness and much more.

Unsafe machines are responsible for approximately 18,000 accidents and 800 deaths each year. Deaths from defective machines represent almost 20% of all work-related fatalities.

Machine Guarding is a protective device used to allow safe access at the point of operation on hazardous machines and equipment. Dangerous machines with minimal or improper machine guarding are defective. The importance of machine guarding was known as early as the end of the 19th century but unfortunately these type accidents still occur.

Any moving part on a machine that can cause potential injury should have guarding for safety. OSHA Act, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, requires employers to provide a workplace “free from recognized hazards.”  Machines should be guarded to protect workers from hazards and injuries.

DiscSanderWithHands(1)Some examples of common machine guarding devices are:

  • Machine Physical Guards
  • Machine Controls
  • Two-Hand Controls
  • Barrier and Perimeter Guarding
  • Light Curtains
  • Safety Switches
  • Safety Shields for machines such as drill presses, lathes, grinders, table saws & bank saws

When manufacturers cut corners and when companies put profit ahead of employee safety, they should be held accountable. If you’ve suffered injuries from an unsafe machine, including improper machine guarding, the manufacturer should be held responsible. Kaster & Lynch can help you receive the justice you deserve and fair compensation for your injuries.
