Protecting Employees From Energized Equipment: Uncover Effective And Compliance Lockout/Tagout And Machine Guarding Programs
|Date / Time:
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.
About Your Presenter:
- 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!
