Starting and stopping devices.

(1) Each power-driven machine must be provided with means for disconnecting from the source of power. Starting and stopping devices for machines must be located so as to be operable from the front of the machine, and constructed to allow proper guarding of belts and pulleys.
(2) Doors of washing machines, extractors, and tumbler/shaker dryer machines, must have a cut-off micro switch or other method to shut off power when loading doors are opened, making inner cylinder, tumbler, or shaker mechanisms inoperative while the door is open. In those situations where the cylinder or mechanism continues to rotate/move, and present a hazard after the power is off, an interlocking device, breaking switch, or a time-delay switch is additionally required to prevent injury.
