The ergonomic considerations of machine safeguarding are as significant to the safety and health of the worker as are the multitude of techniques to accomplish safety and health in the workplace. Worker stress and fatigue can be averted by creditable work setups and well integrated safeguarding. The various industry consensus standards are only now beginning to address this issue. Future evaluations of safeguarding are likely to devote more attention to this aspect.
