Many manufacturers continue to build and sell their tools without the necessary machine guarding and electrical controls required by OSHA and various safety regulations. There are no laws that require them to do so. OSHA states that if the operation of equipment or if accidental contact can injure the operator or others in the vicinity, the hazards must be either controlled or eliminated.

So what's the solution? By safeguarding machines, you can protect employees and save money by reducing insurance rates while increasing productivity.
