Lockout/Tagout And Machine Guarding: Money-Saving Programs That Comply With OSHA Requirements And Reduce Injury
|Date / Time:
Taking precautions to minimize the risk of injury from various machines’ energy sources is imperative for ensuring the safety of workers.
Failure to effectively implement lockout/tagout (LOTO) and machine guarding measures consistently make OSHA’s Top 10 violations list each year which can lead to costly fines for employers and catastrophic injuries for employees.
In January 2017, OSHA fined a plastics manufacturer in Georgia $133,000 for exposing workers to amputations hazards due to missing machine guards, lack of a lockout/tagout program to prevent machinery from starting up during servicing, and other related violations.
Due to recent changes in OSHA’s injury and illness reporting requirements, there are new strict reporting procedures for amputations and other severe injuries that effective machine guarding and LOTO programs can prevent. Failure to properly report such incidents can now result in a $5,000 fine.
Don’t wait for a LOTO or machine guarding incident to figure out if your programs are compliant in your organization. Join us to learn how to comply with OSHA’s LOTO and machine guarding regulations to minimize potential accidents by developing comprehensive practices that should be followed when equipment is being operated, cleaned, inspected, or repaired.
