Make sure point-of-operation guards are properly designed and constructed.

You must make sure each guard:
(1) Prevents the operator's hands or other body parts from reaching through, over, under, or around the guard into the point of operation.
(2) Has no opening larger than the maximum permissible openings shown in Table 200-1, Largest Allowable Guard Openings, WAC 296-806-20042.
(3) Does not create a pinch point between the guard and moving machine parts.
(4) Uses fasteners that cannot be easily removed by the operator.
(5) Is easy to inspect.
(6) Provides the best view of the point of operation for the type of work.
