The General Requirements of All Machines, according to OSHA code 29 CFR 1910.212 (a)(3)(ii), states that the point of operation of machines, whose operation exposes an employee to injury, shall be guarded. 
  1. Do your safeguards meet minimum OSHA requirements?
  2. Do your safeguards prevent workers' hands, arms, and other body parts from making contact with dangerous moving parts?
  3. Do your safeguards permit safe, comfortable, and relatively easy operation of the machine?
  4. Is there a point-of-operation safeguard provided for the machine?
  5. Are safeguards provided for all hazardous moving parts of the machine including auxiliary parts?
