Mechanical Power Press Safety

SKU: C-958
Train your employees how to work safely with a mechanical power press.
Training Time: 42 Minutes

A mechanical power press (MPP) is a machine that uses dies and pressure to shear, punch, form, and assemble metal or other material. They can develop up to several thousand tons of pressure, and the area where they perform work - the "point of operation" - poses a serious pinch point hazard. They also contain rotating component and in-running nip point hazards. The primary and secondary safeguards that are used on MPPs depend on several things. All safeguards must be inspected and tested on a regular basis to make sure that they function correctly and meet all current safety standards.

Topics Covered:

  • Identify and describe the main components of a mechanical power press (MPP)
  • Describe the operation of a MPP
  • Describe the main difference between a full revolution press and a part revolution press
  • Describe the operating modes for MPPs, including Off, Single Stroke, Continuous, Inch, and Jog
  • Describe primary safeguards that can be used on a MPP, including guards, gates, two-hand controls/trips, and presence-sensing devices
  • List secondary safeguards and complementary equipment that can be used on MPPs
  • Describe inspection and recordkeeping requirements for MPPs

Based on:

  • 29 CFR 1910.147 Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout)
  • 29 CFR 1910.212 General Requirements For All Machines
  • 29 CFR 1910.217 Mechanical Power Press Machine Guarding
