OHSA/SAFETY GUARDS

For the sake of maintaining a safe work environment and keeping the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s investigators out of business operations, Falls Metal Fabricators & Industrial Services is a leading fabricator and installer of high-quality custom machine guards that can help you avoid costly citations from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), damaged facilities or equipment, medical costs, replacement personnel, and increased workers’ compensation.

OSHA/Safety Guards

OSHA/safety guarding is an important part of any company that uses machines with external moving parts.

When an OSHA representative inspects a company and deem equipment is unsafe, unreliable, or non-compliant, strict fines can ensue and machines are tagged out and remain inoperable until the addressed safety issue is resolved.

Case Study: OSHA Guard

The pictures below represent the design, fabrication, and installation of an OSHA compliant clam shell belt guard. Refer to the Engineering and Design page for the design drawing for this guard.

The above picture is what the inspector tagged out.  Notice the exposed pullies.  When this machine is running, the belt and pullies are hazards for workers and anyone in the near vicinity.
