Closer Look @ Lockout/Tagout Standard
A Review of the OSHA Requirements that Help Safeguard Employees in the Workplace
OSHA’s Lockout/Tagout (Control of Hazardous Energy) standard, helps safeguard employees from the unexpected startup of machines or equipment or release of hazardous energy while they are performing servicing or maintenance. The Lockout/Tagout standard applies to general industry employment and covers the servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment in which the unexpected startup or release of stored energy could cause injury to employees. Hazardous energy releases may occur during installation, set-up, adjusting, modifying, maintenance, servicing or repairing of machines, equipment, processes, or systems. A violation of OSHA’s Lockout/Tagout standard is always one of their “Top Ten” violations cited annually.
This session will provide an overview of the Lockout/Tagout standard and what employees are protected by the standard. In OSHA’s Lockout/Tagout world, there are three categories of people: Authorized, Affected and Other. All the people in these categories require a certain level of training and understanding of this standard that will be discussed in this session.
