"Hands in Die" refers to production systems where the operator is required to place his hands or fingers in the work area to place or remove material. Because the operator is within the safeguarded point of operation, great care must be taken by the employer to ensure that all-applicable OSHA / ANSI safety requirements are observed.
"Hands Out of Die" refers to applications where all material feeding, parts removal, and scrap handling is accomplished (1) automatically by auxiliary equipment or (2) by the operator, without the need for them to place their hands in the safeguarded point of operation.
