Avoiding Top Lockout/Tagout Mistakes: How to Protect Workers and Meet OSHA Requirements - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid lockout/tagout mistakes that could lead to serious worker injuries and costly OSHA fines.

Lockout/tagout is consistently among OSHA’s top 10 violations, with citations leading to costly fines. Many of these violations result from  employers’ failure to comprehensively evaluate the work tasks that expose workers to hazardous energy and implement appropriate protective measures. Without this evaluation, it is impossible to establish consistently effective procedures to protect employees from hazardous energy and prevent the devastating injuries that can result from LOTO deficiencies. 

Although the LOTO standard allows alternative protective measures in certain situations, known as the “minor servicing exceptions,” too many employers take this path hoping to save time without performing a thorough assessment to ensure that the task truly meets the minor servicing exception and that employees are adequately protected. These and other common lockout/tagout mistakes have the potential to cause severe injuries to employees and costly OSHA citations for employers.

Use this on-demand webinar that will explain how to avoid the most common LOTO-related mistakes in order to protect employees and stay off OSHA’s enforcement radar.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Distinguish between service, repair, or maintenance work that is part of normal production operations and eligible for the minor servicing exception and operations that require full lockout/tagout
  • Develop machine-specific procedures to protect employees and prevent OSHA violations
  • Identify authorized, affected, and other employees under the lockout/tagout standard and determine the appropriate level of training for each
  • Identify and implement best practices for documentation of your lockout/tagout program
