||Laboratory experiments show that work clothing that is wet or soiled with oil and, surprisingly, cloth samples chemically impregnated (water or oil-proofed) get caught more easily by unguarded rotating machine parts than dry, clean and untreated work clothing. The experiments involved rotating cylinders with diameters of 100, 50 and 20mm and a surface roughness commonly used for rotating parts. It is recommended not to use substances which make work clothing more prone to get caught in machines, and to initiate the search for substances reducing this risk.
