Function-Testing Checklist for Point-of-Operation Barrier Guarding –
Barrier guards should be function-tested at every setup, operator, and shift change, as well as every time after maintenance is performed. This point-of-operation barrier guard function-testing checklist can be used for this. It is laminated and has a grommet in the corner so it can be kept at the machine.
The checklist has the function-testing procedures on the front; the back contains the OSHA and ANSI guard-opening requirements and the ANSI B11.19-2003 safety-distance equation for non-locking barrier guards.
