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.
The SafetyVantage Lockout-Tagout and Hazardous Energy Control course, educates workers on how to develop a hazardous energy program, and how to identify, assess, and control hazardous energy, including how to use a lockout procedure. The course covers:
Developing a hazardous energy program
Identifying, assessing, and controlling Hazardous Energy
The lockout procedure
Responding to incidents
Having a strong base knowledge of Lockout-Tagout and Hazardous Energy Control and an awareness of the potential hazards is extremely important for employees that work with equipment that that could have energy in excess. Some of these sources of hazardous energy including everyday equipment like generators, car lifts, pneumatic washers, lasers, and chemical conductors, and there need to be systems in place to isolated and control them to prevent incidents.
