Safeguarding Concepts Illustrated presents methods to protect operators and other employees from hazards inherent in operating machines and equipment.

Although machines and equipment are often manufactured with a necessary safeguarding to meet applicable mandatory and/or voluntary standards, sometimes the purchaser or user may need to fabricate or have the manufacturer fabricate an additional safeguarding device. Safeguarding Concepts Illustrated provides examples of both integral and applied guards on many types of machines and equipment. This is an essential reference guide for every manufacturing facility.
