According to OSHA statistics, lockout-tagout compliance prevents an estimated 120 fatalities and 50,000 injuries each year. When workers are injured from lockout-tagout non-compliance, they averaged 24 days of lost work time to recuperate.
Implementing an effective lockout-tagout program can save your company significant amounts of money and time, and more importantly will ensure your employees go home safely at the end of the day. But it takes more than unplugging and disconnecting equipment. Procedures need to be in place and all sources of hazardous energy need to be accounted for and controlled.
