Guard sewing machine needles.

This section does not apply to domestic-type sewing machines having a presser-foot that is in the "down" position during operation of the machine.
You must provide a permanently attached guard on each sewing machine that:
(1) Prevents the operator's fingers from passing under the needle.
(2) Allows the needle to be conveniently threaded without removing the guard.
For specific requirements about safeguarding sewing machine belts can be found in, Safeguard belt and rope drives, WAC 296-806-30004.
