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

Webinar now available On-Demand.

The average OSHA penalty for improper machine guards is $4,505, and $3,269 for failure to lock or tag out energized equipment.

Comprehensive lockout/tagout (LOTO) and machine-guarding programs will allow safety managers to make huge inroads in protecting employees from energized equipment hazards and avoid costly OSHA violations. LOTO and machine guarding are consistently on OSHA’s top 10 violations list, so taking a proactive approach puts you in better position to minimize citations during inspections.

In order to develop and maintain world-class LOTO and machine-guarding programs, you will first need buy-in from senior management, and then from middle management and employees. You will have to marshal the right resources, commitment, and assessments from safety, maintenance, manufacturing, and human resources to ensure the program addresses your organization’s unique risks and hazards.

Use this on-demand webinar when our presenter, a safety professional experienced in both LOTO and machine-guarding safety, will provide you with an understanding of when and how LOTO and machine-guarding regulations apply to your organization and how best to comply with the applicable requirements to minimize possible accidents and violations.

Discover how to: 

  • Create and implement effective, OSHA compliant LOTO and machine guarding programs, including best practices for writing machine-specific LOTO procedures 
  • Win management’s support for your LOTO & machine guarding initiatives 
  • Identify the different energy sources and methods for controlling them 
  • Use risk assessment and job hazard analysis tools in identifying and controlling hazards 
  • Design effective employee training methods relating to LOTO and guarding including how to keep workers from modifying or removing guards

  • Decide if it’s ever a good idea to run equipment without the guards in place 
  • Use real-world 9-step LOTO procedure that works 
  • Identify what you need to know about special LOTO requirements such as blanking & blinding, double-block & bleed, line breaking/misalignment, and valve lockout 
  • Inspect and audit LOTO and machine guarding programs to ensure ongoing compliance
