Preventing Amputations: Machinery Hazards & Best Practices to Protect Your Workers & Avoid OSHA Citations - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to prevent amputations related to machinery hazards and avoid OSHA machine guarding and LOTO citations.


Machine guarding and lockout/tagout are perennially on OSHA’s annual top-10 violations list, and violations of these standards carry some of the highest average per-violation fines: over $5,500 for a single lockout/tagout violation and nearly $7,000 for a single machine guarding violation.

And recently, OSHA revamped its national emphasis program on amputations to target manufacturing industries where employees are exposed to hazards from unguarded or improperly guarded machinery and equipment—and state plans are expected to follow suit. Employers with workers exposed to amputation hazards are at higher risk than ever of costly citations and fines.

Use this on-demand webinar with Joe Keenan, CSP, MBA, SGE of Keenan Safety Solutions who regularly advises safety and plant managers on OSHA/ANSI standards and industry best practices, for key insights into how to prevent amputations stemming from machinery hazards and avoid OSHA citations.

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

  • Identify the common mistakes and pitfalls that result in citations and fines for machinery hazards
  • Recognize your compliance obligations under the machine guarding and lockout/tagout standards
  • Identify gaps in your machine safety procedures that could put employees at risk
  • Develop effective training and messaging strategies to ensure that your employees don’t try to bypass safety features with risky shortcuts
  • Adapt your machine safety program for new technologies and equipment

And, as a bonus for attending, you’ll receive BLR’s Toolbox Talk “Machine guarding: Protect against amputations.”
