Machine and robotic safety guarding is the responsible choice for any automated workplace
Moving machine parts create workplace hazards—it's an undeniable fact. The list of possible machinery-related injuries is as long as it is horrifying. That's why having machine safe guards are so vitally important. Perimeter safety fencing, like X-GUARD®, help you protect workers from needless and preventable injuries.
Proper safeguarding methods and safety devices are required by regulations to provide a safe workplace environment. With a machine guard from Axelent you can comply with OSHA, ISO, RIA, EN, CSA and other industry guidelines while avoiding injury related costs. Hefty penalties coupled with lost production and employee downtime can be devastating when a plant is shut down due to a safety violation. Installing safety guarding may help reduce insurance premiums and avoid preventable injuries or fatalities.
Axelent's X-GUARD® is available with door and locking solutions for additional safety and can achieve a category 4 according to ISO regulations.
A correctly installed machine guard can prevent accidental access to areas where automated equipment may cause serious injury. It also provides an opportunity to make a positive impact on a company’s bottom line.
Safety features become more and more important as industries automate
Worker safety is paramount. Axelent is dedicated to protecting people as they work around automated machinery, robots and potentially dangerous workplaces by providing only the highest quality of safety partitioning with X-GUARD®. A relatively small investment significantly reduces and often eliminates industrial accidents.
X-GUARD® can help reduce costs and accidents
According to OSHA, workers who operate and maintain machinery suffer approximately 18,000 amputations, lacerations, crushing injuries, abrasions, and over 800 deaths per year. Effective machine guarding, such as X-GUARD®, is a fundamental component of most workplace safety programs because it is an inexpensive investment that can easily reduce or eliminate potential liabilities including severe or fatal injuries.
Companies need to know and comply with legal requirements
Companies seek to avoid injury related expenses from accidents. Safety guarding can eliminate emergency spending costs, machine down time, increases in insurance premiums and other liabilities.
