Woodworking Machine Safety Experts

HITE Engineering offers services to evaluate the adequacy of currently installed guarding on woodworking machinery as well as provides customized improvements for the protection of employee safety. More accidents occur with woodworking machines than any other type of machine due to inadequate guards and safety devices. Woodworking machines often have high-speed cutters which cannot be entirely enclosed and have unsafe guarding.

Woodworking accidents commonly happen at circular saws,                                                                                                                   planing machines, vertical spindle-moulding machines and band                                                                                                                       saws.  If it is not possible to prevent access to dangerous parts                                                                                                                       of machinery using fixed guards alone, HITE will provide appropriate                                                                                                 recommendations such as:

  • Use a combination of fixed guards, adjustable guards, interlocked                                                                                                     guards or automatic guards

  • Protection devices: two-handed controls, pressure mats, light guards

  • Protection appliances: jigs, holders, push-sticks 

  • Hinged, sliding or movable guards which form part of a perimeter                                                                                                             fence or enclosure
