Periodic equipment maintenance is required, calling for equipment to be shut down before work is performed and a lockout/tagout procedure is followed to ensure that the machine remains in a zero-energy state until the maintenance crew has finished the job. A comprehensive lockout/tagout program must include: machine specific procedures to bring equipment to a zero-energy state, a training curriculum for all employees in a facility and processes to maintain and adjust the program.

Safety System Considerations

Managing energy sources and the associated safety concerns can be challenging. Here are a few questions you should be able to answer to ensure you have an overall safety program:

  • Are you familiar with the latest regulatory changes?
  • Do you properly identify and communicate hazards to employees?
  • Do you have a training and certification program in place to keep your workforce aware of the requirements?
  • Do you have a corporate safety policy that is clear, well understood and enforced by those that are involved?
  • Does your lockout/tagout program take into account all types of energy (electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, chemical, kinetic, etc.)?
  • Do your employees have easy access to the necessary safety devices and equipment required for safe operations?

Are You In Compliance with OSHA Standards?

Panduit OSHA Lockout Tagout Kit

OSHA and other International Standards mandate that all energy sources be isolated and locked out to protect employees from injuries caused by the accidental startup of equipment under repair or service. OSHA 1910.147 outlines the control of hazardous energy with an effective lockout/tagout program. The standard also states that employees should be retrained under the circumstances listed below:

Retraining shall be provided for all authorized and affected employees whenever there is a change in their job assignments, a change in machines, equipment or processes that present a new hazard, or when there is a change in the energy control procedures.

Additional retraining shall also be conducted whenever a periodic inspection under paragraph (c)(6) of this section reveals, or whenever the employer has reason to believe that there are deviations from or inadequacies in the employee's knowledge or use of the energy control procedures.
