Home / Environmental Health & Safety / Interlocked Guards

Interlocked Guards

This category includes safety devices used to shut off or disengage power to a machine used in the fabricating process, along with stopping moving parts and keeping the machine in the off position until the guards are reopened. When an interlocking guard is opened or removed, the moving parts of the machine are stopped and locked in place. Interlocking guards can be powered mechanically, electrically, hydraulically, or pneumatically. Interlocking guards necessitate the stoppage of a machine before an operator can reach into the hazardous area.
