According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) they are:  unjamming objects from equipment and  cleaning equipment.
Surprisingly, when an employee is involved with an accident – 59% of the time that person was unjamming or cleaning their equipment. In fact, 88% of the time an on-the-job accident occurs, it is equipment related.
Unfortunately, the reason for the injury is frequently due to a worker being unaware of what is taking place. Typically, a worker either accidentally turns the equipment on, or a co-worker does – not realizing that it is still in operation. The accident is either a result of complacency or poor communication.
