Title:

Protecting Employees From Energized Equipment: Uncover Effective And Compliance Lockout/Tagout And Machine Guarding Programs

SKU:WC-1023755
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Description:

Workers who operate and maintain machinery suffer approximately 18,000 amputations, lacerations, crushing injuries, abrasions, and over 800 deaths annually, according to OSHA.

Subsequently, OSHA’s annual Top 10 list of frequently cited OSHA standards consistently lists machine guarding and lockout/tagout (LOTO) violations each year.

There are intersecting compliance obligations under OSHA’s LOTO and machine guarding standards, which means it’s imperative for safety managers to know the extent of their compliance obligations under both standards before they can develop and manage a comprehensive plan designed to protect workers from energized equipment.

It’s also important to know whether and in what capacity the minor servicing exemption may apply to LOTO requirements. Minor servicing activities including tool changes and adjustments made to equipment or machines during normal operating conditions don’t have to be locked or tagged out under OSHA rules if they are routine, repetitive, and integral to normal machine use, and alternative protective measures are used that protect employees.

Understanding these specific regulatory challenges is crucial to avoiding workplace accidents and subsequent OSHA fines.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how to determine when and how LOTO and machine guarding regulations apply to your organization, where they intersect, and how best to comply with the applicable requirements to minimize possible accidents and violations.

You’ll learn:

  • Basic classifications of machinery that require guarding
  • Common guards that may be used
  • When LOTO is required for your equipment and operations
  • The types of operations that can be considered “minor servicing” and therefore exempt from LOTO requirements
  • Alternate precautions that must be taken when working under the minor servicing exception and the interrelation of machine guarding under these circumstances
  • And more!

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
