We want to help you prevent injuries and maintain code compliance so we’ve scoured through all publically available injury data, read hundreds of incident reports, studied the entire OSHA regulation book, and spoken with experts across the globe. The resulting insights led us to develop our Power Tool Brake. You can read the details of our analysis here, but the summary of our findings is that a surprising number of injuries are due to the simple hazards described below and we’re here to make it easy for you to fix them all with one easy-to-install device.
Common Machine Hazards
Solutions & Mitigations
Despite your best designs and intentions, things can still go wrong. When they do, your people, your products, and your business rely on your ability to quickly avert this emergency situation.
The job of an emergency stop is to quickly avert or to reduce the severity of an emergency situation so having an easy-to-access emergency stop is critical.
Unexpected startups cause thousands of injuries each year yet many safety professionals are unfamiliar with the topic. Did you know, for example, that compliance with simple restart prevention requirements can avoid many lockout tagout injuries?
Accidental restart prevention is required on every motor in a workplace and can be easily accomplished with simple engineering controls. Learn more about why this is important and how you can make a difference.
Did you know that more than half of all injuries occur outside the “regular operation” of a machine? A perfect example is a tool that coasts long after it’s been turned off, exposing the operator to unexpected hazards.
With the new Power Tool Brake, motor braking is accessible and practical on machinery of all sizes. Learn more.
