The Control of Hazardous Energy (LOTO - Lockout/Tag-out) - OSHA 1910.147
Friday, April 12, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PDT)
Palo Alto, CA
This webinar will help you understand OSHA’s requirements for preventing accidental release of energy or accidental start-up of equipment. You will learn what documents to have in place, including a written lockout/tagout plan, and how to implement it.
Why Should You Attend:
Due to the significant number of fatalities, injuries, fires, spills/releases, and “near misses” in manufacturing, OSHA requires procedures for isolating energy sources and equipment startup. Due to unauthorized persons trespassing or accidentally accessing the area and multiple employers working on these projects they are a significant target for lawsuits for accidental releases of energy or startups. Plaintiff attorneys target the failure of parties responsible for isolating energy sources and controls. Unfortunately, in most cases defendants were not aware of the OSHA requirements until it is too late. In 2011 lockout/tagout ranked 5th in the most common OSHA citation with 3,756 violations.
