  • How bad is safety guarding on 82-70’s

    We are getting safety guarding on our 82-70’s, I’m assuming it’s an insurance thing.

    I’ve seen it on A-2’s and it was severe overkill. I call it “baby proofing” a machine.

    I’m all for safety and continuous safety training, but guarding seems like overkill IMHO.

    What are your experiences with it?

    By "safety guarding" do you mean the factory guards that originally came with the machines? (i.e. shrouds over the ball lifts, mesh panels covering the rear of the ball lift between pin elevators, etc.) Or are you talking about something else?

    Per my boss(the owner) I've been tasked with making sure all of those guards remain on the machines during normal operation. Apparently, due to a fairly recent mis-hap in my state, OSHA and L&I are closely monitoring bowling centers in my area. So to prevent any hefty fines that might arise from a surprise inspection we're covering our machines, and our asses so to speak.

      Somebody grabbed a moving Lift drive belt and his/her hand went through the pulley.

      I hear that the pinwheel guards have been discontinued. Haven't confirmed

        No, I have ZERO problems with original guarding that came with the machines.
        The guarding I’m talking about is aftermarket.

          Regular meetings?
          by SPL_Mechanic
          How many centers have regularly scheduled meetings regarding safety, procedures, policies, etc? I'm not talking bar/kitchen staff here, just pinsetter/counter area only?
