Simplify Your Lockout/Tagout and Machine Guarding Compliance: How to Protect Workers and Meet OSHA Requirements

Webinar Rebroadcast: Tuesday, July 30, 2019

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to simplify LOTO and machine guarding compliance, protect workers and meet OSHA requirements.


OSHA continues to focus enforcement efforts on machine guarding and lockout tagout (LOTO) compliance, as many employers fail to comply with these rules. According to a federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey, 80% of workers fail to shut down energized equipment before servicing it. 

In many cases, they were trying to save time. Machine guarding and LOTO standards are consistently on the list of the top 10 most frequently cited OSHA standards. Both violations can occur with the same piece of machine or equipment, because 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.

Join us on July 30 for a rebroadcast of a widely popular webinar wiith an experienced safety attorney. You'll get answers to common questions such as: 
-Could an authorized employee ask an affected employee to assist with cleaning a machine that is locked out for servicing?
-If a contractor was diagnosing an HVAC unit at a client’s facility when his worker got shocked, should the unit have been locked out, and who makes that decision--the contract or the facility owner? 

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 LOTO
  • And more!
