I am in California. We have a couple of E-stop buttons that have been accidenatlly hit on our equipment. I am told that it is against OSHA standards to put in an EStop with a guard around it so it does not accidentally get pushed. IS this true? I can not seem to find anything in the OSHA manuals about guarding the buttons. I found color and visibility, but nothing on guards. Please help me out.
