Abstract
The operation of metalcutting lathes was studied to determine methods of reducing risk of injury. Injury reports were reviewed and classified by operating activities and dysfunctions. Lathe operation was observed and human factor evaluations were made. Fault free logic analysis was applied to check the thoroughness of the data. Twenty eight safety recommendations resulted, including a design for a safer cutting removal tool. The authors conclude that researchers should use multiple methods of hazard assessment to determine the best injury controls.
