Follow these requirements for dividers.

You must enclose or safeguard the moving parts in the back of the divider with all of the following:
(1) A complete cover to enclose all moving parts or an enclosure or guard for each individual part to remove separate hazards.
(2) A limit switch to shut off the machine when the rear cover is open.
(3) A hinged guard on the back that cannot be completely removed.
(4) You must make sure that, if a catch or brace is provided for holding the cover open, make sure it will not release due to vibrations or minor bumping, causing the cover to drop on an employee.
Note:
Dividers as discussed in this section utilize pistons, knives and blades to cut and divide large quantities of dough. This does not apply to small vibrating or oscillating rounders.
