Add an Emergency Stop Button

It is essential to install safety devices such as emergency stop buttons (more commonly called E-Stop buttons) on machines such as lathes, milling machines, or drill presses.

We highly recommend reading Doug Nix’s article “Emergency Stop—What’s so confusing about that?” in which he details what an E-Stop is and what it does.

You should add a standardized E-Stop button on every machine.  Ferndale Safety even recommends installing these buttons on drill presses and bench grinders.  Why?  A standard twist-release E-stop button with a yellow background should be recognizable by anybody working in an industrial setting near machinery.  Some machines have many buttons that, over time, have had their identification labels rubbed off.  If an emergency occurs where a person who is not familiar with the device needs to shut it down, an E-stop button that is within reach and visible can be the one thing that saves the day.

Where to Install an E-Stop?

Install emergency stop buttons within easy reach of where the operator would need to be.  Think of places such as cleanout doors, chip conveyors, or behind machines.  You should have one everywhere where an operator might be.  For smaller tools, just one e-stop is sufficient.

Installation & Precautions

Below is an example diagram of where you could wire an E-Stop into a standard machine tool such as a drill press.  Note: Don’t install these buttons directly in series with the motor circuit.  It must be installed only in series with the control circuit.
