Machine GuardingDr. King of CSI Central Valley has consulted on numerous cases involving a questions of proper machine guarding. These cases often require the research of safety standards and design requirements for the specific machine in question. An examination of the machine may reveal the guard to have been disabled, circumvented, malfunctioning, inadequately designed or fully operational.

Dr. King is accustomed to asking the pertinent questions regarding sequence of events and usage as well as the testing of the equipment and review of the schematics to determine where the failure occurred.

When desired, Dr. King, and his team of investigators, have also helped with the redesigning of circuits and guard configuration to demonstrate that it was possible to properly build the circuitry and the guard using commercially available products at the time the unit was originally built.
