Facilities face a lot of dangers. Whether it is the machine itself, the machine’s environment, or workers’ own mistakes and errors, there are all sorts of ways for accidents to happen. Luckily, machine guarding offers a variety of solutions that can help improve facility safety and reduce dangerous machine-related accidents and injuries.
