Point of operation guarding, as applied to the dvorak model 314 iron worker.
Standard Number: 1910.212
July 1, 1977
MEMORANDUM FOR: ALL REGIONAL ADMINISTRATORS - OSHA
THROUGH: ACTING FIELD COORDINATOR
Subject: 29 CFR 1910.212, Point of Operation Guarding, As Applied To The Dvorak Model 314 Iron Worke
Letters of complaints and contests have been brought to our attention claiming that guards for points of operation on Iron Worker machines are not feasible, are impractical and unnecessary. To explore the claims, a joint effort was initiated by the Denver Regional Office, and the Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Area Office in coordination with Little Scotchman Industries, Philip, South Dakota, a manufacturer of iron worker machines. Subsequently, Little Scotchman Industries designed and developed points of operation devices for all stations on the Dvorak Model 314 Iron Worker, which they manufacture. A copy of their brochure is enclosed.
OSHA technical experts from the Denver Regional Office and the Sioux Falls Area Office viewed an operational demonstration of the machines and determined that the guarding devices are feasible and practical, and meet the intent of the standard.
When Iron Workers are equipped with similar point of operations guarding devices, such as the ones furnished by the manufacturer of the Dvorak Model 314, they are considered as meeting the intent of the OSHA General Industry Standard, 29 CFR 1910.212(a)(1), when the guarding devices are installed, maintained and used safely according to the manufacture's instructions.
The aforementioned is for your information and distribution to your field offices.
