Certifications & Safety

Safety-First Program

Your Haas machine was designed to run with the doors closed, with all guarding in place, and with safety features fully functioning – at all times.

Like safety glasses and other common-sense protocols, it is the only way to be sure you are in a safe working space, and that you’re protected from harm.

To protect the machine operator, and provide maximum safety, your Haas machine was designed to run with the doors closed, with protective guarding in position, and with safety features functioning – at all times. Haas machines feature mechanical and software safety provisions designed to ensure that the machine doors remain closed whenever a program is running.

Some people may attempt to defeat or override the safety lockout provisions. This is a dangerous practice, and should be avoided at all costs. The safety provisions in your Haas machine can only protect the operator if they are working properly.

If the safety features of your Haas machine(s) have been tampered with or are no longer operative, we would like to help you return the machine to its original factory configuration. In fact, we feel that safety is so important, that we will cover the cost of the initial machine safety inspection.

That’s right, there will be no charge to you for the initial inspection. If a Haas service technician is in your shop for a service call, he will perform a safety inspection at no charge. In addition, you can contact your local Haas Factory Outlet to set up an appointment for a Haas certified service technician to perform a no-charge review of your machine’s safety status, and explain what needs to be done to bring the machine’s safety features back to the original factory settings.
