Mechanical Hazards - Wrap Point

Any type of rotating machine component can be considered a wrap point. The rotating components are often shafts such as the power take-off (PTO). People can be caught by loose clothing or long hair. PTO shafts turn extremely fast and you can get caught faster than you can react. Wear snug fitting clothes and tie up long hair. Keep the guards and shields of rotating parts in place.
