Moving Parts are a hazard and can cause serious injury; Safety Guards are put in place to protect you from moving parts. If you place your body parts in moving parts to remove jammed items you are putting yourself at risk.

How to protect yourself

The machine must be stopped before you remove jammed items from the Ironer

Tell your co-workers not to turn the machine back on until you have safely removed the item

If the item can not be removed safely, report to your Supervisor

Do Not

Do not remove jammed items whilst Ironer is operational

Do not place your body parts in moving parts

Do not remove items from behind safety guards whilst Ironer is operational

Do not climb on top of the Ironer to remove jammed items

Do not restart the machine until you have checked with your co-workers to ensure they are not in danger of being injured.
