Using Safety Light Curtains? Consult this Checkout Log to Make Sure Theyre Being Used Properly

February 1, 2010

Through OSHA’s Alliance Program, this checklist was developed for informational purposes only, as a product of the OSHA and The Association for High Technology Distribution Alliance. It is recommended that the following checkout procedures be performed by a qualified person during initial light-curtain installation and at least every three months (or more frequently, depending on machine-usage and company guidelines). A “qualified person” is defined by ANSI/PMMI B155.1-2006 as an individual who “understands, is trained on, and demonstrates competence with the construction, operation or maintenance of the machinery and the hazards involved.”
