What is OSHA Machine Guarding Training?

This training is designed to provide employees with the knowledge and training to use machinery with proper guarding to avoid injury or incident. Did you know that there are roughly 18,000 amputations, lacerations, crushing injuries, abrasions, and over 800 deaths annually that occur in the workplace in the United States?

We want your employees to have all the information they need to quickly and effectively work safely.
