SOP 002 Drill Press


It is important to have a safe operating procedure for a drill press to minimize the risk of accidents and injuries. A safe operating procedure outlines the steps that should be taken before, during, and after using a drill press. These steps include checking the workspace and walkways for slip hazards, ensuring the drill chuck guard is in position, and removing the chuck key from the drill chuck before use. The procedure also includes operational safety checks such as never leaving the drill press while it is running, feeding downwards at a sufficient rate to keep the drill cutting, and using a safe working posture. Additionally, the procedure includes housekeeping steps such as switching off the machine at the end of work and leaving the machine in a safe, clean, and tidy state.
