 ^ Hazard ^ Risk ^ Mitigation ^ ^ Hazard ^ Risk ^ Mitigation ^
-| **Trapping / Pinching** | Closing movements between tools, workpieces and other machine parts under power feed can present a trapping hazard. | Machine users are to ensure they are well aware of their environment and other workshop users, and must disengage power feed and make the machine safe if distracted. Before starting the machine, users should ensure the power feed is either engaged or disengaged as they are expecting ​+| **Trapping / Pinching** | Closing movements between tools, workpieces and other machine parts under power feed can present a trapping hazard. | Machine users are to ensure they are well aware of their environment and other workshop users, and must disengage power feed and make the machine safe if distracted. Before starting the machine, users should ensure ​that both the power feed & threading lead screw are disengaged ​
 | ** Flying parts** | Workpieces (and chuck keys or tools) can be ejected violently if not held correctly | The lathe should not be started until the user has confirmed the workpiece and tool is properly secured, the chuck key is removed, and the work area / machine ways are completely clear. The headstock should not be used to store parts / tools as these can fall into the spinning machinery. Self-ejecting/​spring-loaded chuck keys are advised. |  | ** Flying parts** | Workpieces (and chuck keys or tools) can be ejected violently if not held correctly | The lathe should not be started until the user has confirmed the workpiece and tool is properly secured, the chuck key is removed, and the work area / machine ways are completely clear.

-| **User injury** | Contact with rotating parts and hot swarf can cause cuts, abrasions and burns. | Appropriate feeds and speeds should be selected to minimise stringy chips/"​birdnesting"​. ​Brushes/etc are preferred for clearing hot chips. ​Gloves ​should be worn when handling chips directly. //NB: Gloves **should not** be worn whilst the machine is in operation - see below.// Eye protection must be worn. |+| **User injury** | Contact with rotating parts and hot swarf can cause cuts, abrasions and burns. | Appropriate feeds and speeds should be selected to minimise stringy chips/"​birdnesting"​. ​Users should not attempt to clear chips with the machine runningMetal chips should not be handled directly: use pliers to clear nested chips, a brush to clear loose chips, and heavy gloves ​should be worn when clearing the chip tray by hand. //NB: Gloves **should not** be worn whilst the machine is in operation - see below.// Eye protection must be worn. |
 | **Entanglement** | Long hair, dangling jewellery, loose clothing or gloves can become entangled with rotating parts, dragging the user onto them. Application of cutting oil using a brush presents an entanglement risk. | Loose clothing should not be worn, or should be covered with an appropriately secured apron. Long hair is to be tied back. Loose jewellery should be removed. Gloves should not be worn when the machine is in operation. |  | **Entanglement** | Long hair, dangling jewellery, loose clothing or gloves can become entangled with rotating parts, dragging the user onto them.

 | **Lack of space/​pushing by others** | Limited space can cause the user of the lathe to be pushed by other people in the space. | Area surrounding the lathe should be closed of when in use.|  | **Lack of space/​pushing by others** | Limited space can cause the user of the lathe to be pushed by other people in the space. | Area surrounding the lathe should be closed of when in use.|
