What does OSHA require when it comes to adding emergency stops on old machine shop equipment? Some of the machinery is these shops are more than 5o years old and have no e-stops. In the manual machine shop world it is probably the norm to have more machinery that was built without E-Buttons were required. I am talking about huge lathes, boring mills etc.
I am not sure that you could even add E-Stops to some of this old stuff.
If anybody has insight I would really appreciate it.
