A worker reaches inside a jammed machine to try to fix it. It suddenly releases ... crushing his hand. Steam, electricity, pressure—your workers face obvious and unexpected energy hazards in the routine maintenance or repair of on-the-job machinery and equipment. OSHA’s lockout/tagout standard 1910.147 protects them. But employer compliance isn’t as simple as just reminding employees to turn off or unplug the equipment first. And what happens when adjustments need to be made while a machine is on?
Employers must understand the rules for varying devices and situations—and how to educate workers and supervisors on those rules. And our new one-hour webinar How to Comply With OSHA’s Lockout/Tagout Standard examines all the specifics of this critical safety standard. Even minor violations are serious business—putting workers at risk and putting you, the employer, in the crosshairs of OSHA enforcement. Know the law. Sign up today!
