GSG – Hazardous Mechanical Motions/Actions These different types of hazardous mechanical motions and actions are basic to nearly all machines. and recognizing them is the first step toward protecting workers from the danger they present The basic types of hazardous mechanical motions and actions are: 40 .
reciprocating & transverse Actions: ○ cutting. punching.GSG – Hazardous Mechanical Motions/Actions Motions: ○ rotating. & bending 41 . shearing.
GSG – Hazardous Mechanical Motions/Actions Motions Rotating motion can be dangerous. even smooth. and through mere skin contact force an arm or hand into a dangerous position. slowly rotating shafts can grip clothing. Injuries due to contact with rotating parts can be severe. 42 .
GSG – HMM/A . cams. nicks. clutches. shaft ends.Motions Collars. The danger increases when bolts. and projecting keys or set screws are exposed on rotating parts. and horizontal or vertical shafting are some examples of common rotating mechanisms which may be hazardous. spindles. couplings. abrasions. as shown in the next slide… 43 . flywheels.
Motions In-running nip point hazards are caused by the rotating parts on machinery There are three main types of in-running nips. ○ Between parts that rotate in opposite directions ○ Between rotating and tangentially moving parts ○ Between rotating and fixed parts 45 .GSG – HMM/A .
46 .GSG – HMM/A . rolling mills. This danger is common on machinery with intermeshing gears.Motions Between parts that rotate in opposite directions Parts can rotate in opposite directions while their axes are parallel to each other. In the latter case the stock fed between the rolls produces the nip points. These parts may be in contact (producing a nip point) or in close proximity to each other.
48 .Motions Between rotating and tangentially moving parts Some examples would be: the point of contact between a power transmission belt and its pulley. a chain and a sprocket.GSG – HMM/A . or a rack and pinion.
GSG – HMM/A - Motions
Between rotating and fixed parts Nip points can occur between rotating and fixed parts which create a shearing, crushing, or abrading action. Examples are: spoked handwheels or flywheels, screw conveyors, or the periphery of an abrasive wheel and an incorrectly adjusted work rest.
during the back-andforth or up-and-down motion. 52 . a worker may be struck by or caught between a moving and a stationary part.Motions Reciprocating motions may be hazardous because.GSG – HMM/A .
Motions Transverse motion (movement in a straight.GSG – HMM/A . 54 . continuous line) creates a hazard because a worker may be struck or caught in a pinch(Press tightly between the fingers) or shear point by the moving part.
reciprocating. or transverse motion The danger of cutting action exists at the point of operation where finger. or other materials 56 . head. and arm injuries can occur and where flying chips or scrap material can strike the eyes or face Such hazards are present at the point of operation in cutting wood.Actions Actions Cutting action involves rotating.GSG – HMM/A . metal.
circular saws. or milling machines. 57 . boring or drilling machines.GSG – HMM/A .Actions Typical examples of mechanisms involving cutting hazards include band-saws. turning machines (lathes).
drawing. The danger of this type of action occurs at the point of operation where stock is inserted.GSG – HMM/A . and withdrawn by hand.Actions Punching action results when power is applied to a slide (ram) for the purpose of blanking. or stamping metal or other materials. 59 . held. Typical machinery used for punching operations are power presses and iron workers.
hydraulically. A hazard occurs at the point of operation where stock is actually inserted. Typical examples of machinery used for shearing operations are mechanically. and withdrawn. 61 . held.GSG – HMM/A . or pneumatically powered shears.Actions Shearing action involves applying power to a slide or knife in order to trim or shear metal or other materials.
Actions Bending action results when power is applied to a slide in order to draw or stamp metal or other materials. Equipment that uses bending action includes power presses.GSG – HMM/A . press brakes. and a hazard occurs at the point of operation where stock is inserted. 63 . held. and withdrawn. and tubing benders.
General Safety Guidelines Requirements for Safeguards Safeguards must meet these minimum general requirements: ○ Prevent contact ○ Secure ○ Protect from falling objects ○ Create no new hazards ○ Create no interference ○ Allow safe lubrication 65 .
66 .GSG – Requirements for Safeguards Prevent Contact The safeguard must prevent hands. or any other part of a worker's body from making contact with dangerous moving parts. arms. A good safeguarding system eliminates the possibility of the operator or another worker placing their hands near hazardous moving parts.
because a safeguard that can easily be made ineffective is no safeguard at all.GSG – Requirements for Safeguards Secure Workers should not be able to easily remove or tamper with the safeguard. 67 . Guards and safety devices should be made of durable material that will withstand the conditions of normal use. They must be firmly secured to the machine.
GSG – Requirements for Safeguards Protect From Falling Objects The safeguard should ensure that no objects can fall into moving parts. A small tool which is dropped into a cycling machine could easily become a projectile that could strike and injure someone. 68 .
for instance. The edges of guards. a jagged edge. should be rolled or bolted in such a why that they eliminate sharp edges. 69 . or an unfinished surface which can cause a laceration.GSG – Requirements for Safeguards Create No New Hazards A safeguard defeats its own purpose if it creates a hazard of its own such as a shear point.
Proper safeguarding can actually enhance efficiency since it can relieve the worker's apprehensions about injury. 70 .GSG – Requirements for Safeguards Create No Interference Any safeguard which impedes a worker from performing the job quickly and comfortably might soon be overridden or disregarded.
GSG – Requirements for Safeguards Allow Safe Lubrication If possible. 71 . will reduce the need for the operator or maintenance worker to enter the hazardous area. one should be able to lubricate the machine without removing the safeguards. Locating oil reservoirs outside the guard. with a line leading to the lubrication point.
