What we do
EHS provides the means to evaluate and develop hazard energy control programs for your specific area. Lockout/tagout is a process that uses locks and tags to isolate and prevent the release of hazardous energy during service, maintenance, and modification of machines, motors, and electrical equipment. Hazardous energy includes any of the following; electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, thermal, chemical, moving parts, and any other form of energy that presents a physical hazard.
What you need to do
Supervisors are responsible for established lockout/tagout program, ensuring procedures are followed and employees are trained. All employees that service or repair equipment that possess hazards energy must use lockout/tagout procedures and must attend Lockout/Tagout training before working on equipment or practicing lockout/tagout. Lockout/tagout refresher training is required annually.
