Interlocking of Moveable Guards

  • 1. Are movable guards protected with the safety rated interlocks?<br>2. Do pneumatic and hydraulic systems have auto dump valves to release residual energies when interlocks are broken?<br>3. Are there any obvious single points of failure of the safety system (I.e. -1 mechanical interlock switch on a guard door, 1 Air valve, etc.)?<br>4. Does the safety system appear to be the appropriate CATEGORY for the equipment and it's hazards?

The templates available in our Public Library have been created by our customers and employees to help get you started using SafetyCulture's solutions. The templates are intended to be used as hypothetical examples only and should not be used as a substitute for professional advice. You should seek your own professional advice to determine if the use of a template is permissible in your workplace or jurisdiction. Any ratings or scores displayed in our Public Library have not been verified by SafetyCulture for accuracy. Users of our platform may provide a rating or score that is incorrect or misleading. You should independently determine whether the template is suitable for your circumstances. You can use our Public Library to search based on criteria such as industry and subject matter. Search results are based on their relevance to your search and other criteria. We may feature checklists based on subject matters we think may be of interest to our customers.
