· When multiple machines are working together at the same time, a safe distance should be maintained.
· Set up safety warning signs on site or dangerous areas, and check the situation of machine guarding equipment.

4.Requirements to consider when using machine guarding equipment:
· The machine guarding should be simple in structure and reasonable for placement, and should not have sharp edges or any piece of convex.
· The machine guarding system should take reliability, corresponding rigidity, hardness, stability, corrosion resistance, flexibility and other characteristics into account.
· The machine guarding shall be interlocked with the other running equipment. When the machine guarding equipment do not work, the attached machine can not be operated as well. And the distance between every machine guarding equipment shall comply with the relevant distance regulations.
· Photoelectric and inductive safety device shall be equipped with a fault self-alarm system.
· The emergency stop should ensure that all operations of the machine can be stopped when taking quick action.
· The machine guarding should meet the requirements of a safe distance and make all parts of the human body (especially hands and feet) inaccessible to the hazardous area.
· The machine guarding should not interfere the daily operation, and must not come into contact with any movable parts of operation machine, keeping people watch all clearly.

We don’t believe in the “this will not happen, people would not be so careless” hypothesis, human error can always occur. We don’t think that wearing safety helmet or keep safety distance are sufficient. People are so casually sometimes and are used to “safe environment”,they will eventually ignore them unconsciously. Safety should not only rely on people’s behavior. Technical safety is the key. Remember those basic tips and choose appropriate machine guarding system.
