At Mat Processing Technology, workplace safety matters. Mat Processing Technology has added important new safety guards to its line of Mat Rollers that exceed OSHA Standards and improve workplace safety.
Standard safety upgrades on the High Roller II-S and the EZ Roller Mat Rollers include:
• Safety guards at the front and sides of the mat roller that virtually eliminate any possible pinch points where the operator interacts with the machine during operation
• Openings in the machine work area are smaller than OSHA’s requirement of ¼ inch1 An optional photoelectric light curtain safeguard is available on both machines in addition to the existing manual emergency stop buttons.
This safeguard device automatically stops the machine if the operator’s hands penetrate the light curtain in front of the mat rolling area. These new safeguards help prevent injury to operators’ fingers and hands, improving the safety of your workplace and ensuring OSHA compliance.
