Nobody in Education wants to make the dreaded call to a parent that their child was injured at school due to a machine guarding issue.
Simply put, there are bench grinders and other manual guarded machines in your school’s welding, machining, engineering, wood shops, and even maintenance departments that are a high risk for injuries.
Those machines even with the best administrative training and supervision, are extremely dangerous. When that accident happens, the student, teachers, and parents will be traumatized forever.
The liability risk for the school is in the hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.
Don’t wait for the accident to occur, take action today.
Manufacturing / Industry:
Wow! Who would have ever thought a simple bench grinder could tear up someone’s hand as bad as it did Bob’s this morning?
The call from the hospital was good news, he still has all his fingers, but required 12 stitches and he’ll need some physical therapy to get full range of motion back.
Our general manager is going to be on my back about how this happened! Plus, he’ll want to know how long Bob is out, what is our workers comp payout.
And, oh yeah, what about the OSHA inspection that just got scheduled! Who knows what all this is going to cost?
This has been a terrible day, all because the tool rest on the bench grinder was too far from the grinding wheel.
We have procedures and the guys know to inspect the clearance every time they use the machine. I guess everyone has just gotten lax.
ODIZ Safety hopes the above scenario never happens to you or your company! We have developed the No-Go™ Grinder Safety Stand
It eliminates OSHA 1910.215 Work Rest & Tongue Guard violations and Injuries with ODIZ Patented No-Go™ Safety Controls.
Your group just got written up for the 5th time for a simple bench grinder being out of adjustment!
You are not happy because it’s created a mound of corrective action paper work and writing up employees because they didn’t listen to you the first four times.
Also, your group now has a red flag from the safety office for multiple violations. The bench grinder is such a simple machine – there has to be a simple answer to assure it’s set up correctly.
Well, now there is with the ODIZ Safety No-Go™ Grinder Safety Stand! Don’t wait for another bad safety audit, or worse, an accident!
