WAC 296-806-20010

Protect employees from unintentional machine operation.

(1) You must make sure foot-operated controls are located or guarded so that unintentional movement to the "on" position is unlikely.
(2) You must make sure machines will not automatically restart when power is restored after a power failure, if restarting would create a hazard for employees.
Note:
Operating controls can be protected from unintentional movement by methods such as covers on foot treadles and collars around machinery start buttons.
