Scrap Baling Presses / Scrap Balers - Articles & Resources

Personnel who load, operate or maintain balers can be exposed to crushing and amputation hazards, if the baler is inadequately safeguarded or if hazardous energy lockout procedures are not followed. Serious injuries and fatalities have occurred when part of the worker's body was caught by the baler ram inside loading and baling chambers. Therefore, it becomes mandatory for most of the balers to meet the safeguarding requirements listed in various quality standard guidelines. Checklists that highlight the ANSI and OSHA standards particularly emphasize on the commonly-used vertical downstroke baler. These checklists for safe baler operation need to be reviewed before purchase. Based on its research, three criteria must be satisfied to protect workers from injury during operation of balers:

  • The point-of-operation guarding, such as an interlock gate, must prevent workers from placing any part of their body into the hazardous areas of the baler during operation.
  • Periodic inspection and maintenance of the equipment and safeguarding devices must be conducted to ensure proper operation and safe performance.
  • Workers must be trained in safe operation of the equipment, understand the hazards related to bypassing safety devices, and recognize the limitations and effective operating ranges of safety devices.
