Protecting Employees from Energized Equipment: Implement Effective Lockout/Tagout and Machine Guarding Programs- On Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Machine guarding and LOTO standards are some of the most frequently cited OSHA standards - find out if your program is compliant, and it not, how to improve it.

Machine guarding and lockout/tagout (LOTO) standards are consistently on the list of the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards, and OSHA continues to focus enforcement efforts on these regulations because many employers fail to adequately comply with the requirements. Both violations can be problematic for employers because both can occur within the same piece of machinery or equipment, which means it can be difficult to know when machine safeguards are not enough to protect workers and lockout/tagout is necessary. As a result, OSHA is issuing numerous citations and large penalties for violation of these two standards.

It’s a daunting task to establish an efficient and effective program to protect all workers and stay in compliance with machine guarding and lockout/tagout rules. Thankfully there are good established procedures and safety management best practices to help guide you towards effective machine guarding and LOTO compliance.

View this on demand webinar with Edwin Foulke Jr., Partner at Fisher Phillips, as he discusses the most frequently cited portions of the machine guarding and LOTO standards. As a result of attending this webinar, employers will know what they need to do in order to be in full compliance with these commonly cited standards.

You’ll learn:

  • The requirements for compliance of the machine guarding and LOTO standards
  • How failure to meet these standards will negatively impact your company’s success
  • Compliance strategies for machine guarding which will improve compliance of LOTO program
  • How and when to apply the minor servicing exception that allows machine safeguarding and alternative measures that provide effective protection when servicing machines in place of lockout/tagout
