There are many hazards in the use of machinery and equipment which can be potentially dangerous to the user or people near the object. Effective means of dealing with these hazards to protect people is imperative. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) code of ethics states as its first fundamental tenet that "Engineers shall hold paramount the safety, health and welfare of the public in the performance of their professional duties." The American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) also includes this code of ethics within their constitution. It is clear that safety should be the first and foremost design parameter for any engineering project. Guarding is an important element in industrial safety, and at Ryan Engineering we have a broad background in machine design and guarding. Our engineers have also developed warnings and alternative guarding designs, as well as publishing papers on machine guarding.  Our staff includes an international machine/facility guarding consultant.
