Note: No operators are to set up or operate any press without adequate training,for both the presses and the tooling. Level I press training module when successfully completed gives the operator the authorization to operate presses.

The level II training modules when successfully completed gives the operator the authorization to set-up and operate the press. There are no exceptions to this statement.

All operators are to receive the required training for the tooling they are to use .Punch plates as well. If at any time an operator feels uncomfortable with the machine or tooling they are to operate. Immediately contact their supervisor.

1. Wear gloves when operating the punch press.
2. When reaching into the press for the purpose of changing punch/die or for the purpose of making internal adjustment, it is mandatory to
    use a die stop block and or stop the flywheel.
3. When leaving the machine unattended the press operator must turn off the main press control.
4. Keep your hands clear of the machine while cycling. Whenever placing or removing parts from pinch points, if possible, use a tool to avoid
    placing your hands in the pinch point zone.
5. Before operating, make sure all guards are in place and make sure all adjustment bolts are tight.
6. Hand controls must be used whenever possible.
7. Your foot must be completely removed from the pedal box after completing each cut, on machines that are not equipped with light curtains
    or other safe guards.

   all light curtain blockers when using punch plates that require none.

   and personal damage.
5. Never attempt to punch more then one part at a time.

6. Don’t stack parts on the press bed higher than 6". Parts must be placed on a piece of 11 gauge material.
