Support in drafting and implementing Lockout-Tagout procedures, in accordance with OSHA 1910.147.
Drafting and implementation of Lockout-Tagout procedures
Developing and implementing a comprehensive program of written procedures and training courses can help prevent many accidents, which also occur during maintenance and result in the loss of working days.
Particular attention should be focused on the risk of a unexpected start up, which may occur when the start commands are suddenly activated due to failures in the control systems.
Lockout-Tagout procedures compliant with the international OSHA Standard 1910.147 provide employees with the requisite information for operating machinery safely. For example: providing visible signs that the machine is disconnected from its power source in order to minimize risk.
Our service of support is specially designed for both the employer and the employees involved in the maintenance processes. We can help draw up and implement clear, fully compliant and systematic LOTO procedures and comprehensive training plans, to meet the organizational and production requirements of medium or large companies.
LOTO (Lockout-Tagout) procedures are an effective way of preventing the risk of injury due to the unexpected start-up of machinery, by fixing on clearly visible devices to show the equipment is shut down. This typically involves locks and tags.
In 1988-1989, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) formalized and issued a general standard, the 29 Code of Federal Regulations 1910.147, which established the criteria and working practices that needed to be used.
Employers are required to do the following: put in place systems of control to prevent equipment restarting unexpectedly; train employees about the energy control procedures; monitor these procedures regularly to ensure that they are being followed and remain effective, retrain the authorized workers involved whenever there are changes to the set procedures, including through refresher courses.
