Course Description

TEEX OSHA Training Institute Education Center LogoThe Machinery and Machine Guarding Standards (OSHA #2045) course covers the various types of common machinery, machine safeguards, and related OSHA regulations and procedures.

Course topics include machinery processes, mechanical motions, points of operation, control of hazardous energy sources (lockout/tagout), common OSHA machine guarding violations, and guarding of portable powered tools, conveyors, and robotics. Program highlights include the ability to recognize hazards and provide options for control and hazard abatement through machine safeguarding inspection workshops. Upon course completion, students will have the ability to describe common machine hazards and sources of energy, ident(fy resources for assisting with machine guarding issues, and determine methods of control and hazard abatement, and selection of appropriate machine safeguards.

Attendance Requirements

TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires participants to fully attend an enrolled class in its entirety (100% of the course). We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a participant out of class and have a policy to handle those situations. If a participant misses less than 20% of the class, he/she may be able to perform makeup work equivalent to the class time missed. If 20% or more of the class is missed, the participant may attend a makeup course upon approval by TEEX’s OTI Education Center Director.
