7. Minimize the Risks of Moving Machinery

Make sure that there is no possibility for personnel or body parts to be struck, crushed or compressed by moving machinery.

Owners must secure the area so that installation personnel are not at risk from the movements of machines, automatic doors or adjacent hoists at the installation site.

Ensure that machinery and equipment cannot start accidentally and cannot move during installation and servicing. Maintain sufficient free space in the working area to reduce risks. Moving parts should be properly shielded with guards to prevent entrapment. Safety devices must never be overridden.

Be prepared in case equipment moves in the wrong direction during testing.
