WAC 296-806-45526

Provide additional safeguards when the operator puts one or both hands into the point of operation.

Important:
This rule applies when the operator puts one or both hands into the point of operation to feed or remove parts, and the point of operation is protected by any of the following:
1. Presence-sensing device.
2. Two-hand control.
3. Type B gate or movable barrier device.
(1) You must make sure the press has both a:
(a) Stopping-performance monitor (previously called brake-system monitor); and
(b) Control system that monitors the performance of safety-related functions (previously called control reliability).
(2) You must make sure the stopping-performance monitor meets the requirements of:
(a) American National Standards Institute (ANSI) B11.1-1982, Mechanical Power Presses - Safety Requirements for Construction, Care, and Use for presses manufactured before January 1, 2005.
(b) ANSI B11.1-2001, Safety Requirements for Mechanical Power Presses for presses manufactured on or after January 1, 2005.
(3) You must make sure the control system monitors the performance of safety-related functions so that failure of any component in the control system:
(a) Does not prevent normal stopping action of the press.
(b) Prevents initiation of another cycle (stroke) until the failure is corrected.
(c) Can be detected by a simple test or is indicated by the control system.
EXEMPTION:
This requirement does not apply to control system components that do not affect protection from point-of-operation hazards.
