Pinch Points Are Serious Business
Don't Overlook the "Little" Things
We are all aware of the dangers of pinch points; however sometimes we are so used to everyday operations that we have a tendency to overlook things we might consider marginal or “just common sense”.

Last August in Ohio, a tool and manufacturing servicer was cited for failing to adequately guard pinch points on a conveyor belt.

According to the US Dept of Labor, OSHA stated in its report, "Employers are required to install and maintain machine guards to protect workers from amputation hazards." The company faces $213,411 in proposed penalties.

Machine Safety: How to Implement Safe Bypassing
Machine Safety is vital to operational success. There are many advantages when organizations look Beyond Compliance and see Safety as an integral part of their processes. One tactic that is often used is bypassing.
