Summary: Lock Out/Tag Out
The Safety and Emergency Planning Committee of the Illinois Section of AWWA has developed a series of webinars to aid Municipalities in developing and/or maintaining their own safety programs. These webinars will provide basic information for individuals to expand to be Municipality specific in order to meet regulatory requirements. Lockout/Tagout - The Control of Hazardous Energy is the first topic in the series.
Lockout/Tagout represents the specific practices and procedures to safeguard employees from the unexpected energization or start-up of machinery or equipment during service or maintenance activities. The Lockout/Tagout standard prevents an estimated 120 fatalities and 50,000 injuries each year. Employers must provide effective initial training and retraining as necessary and must clearly certify that such training has been given to all employees covered by the standard.
This webinar will review: OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.147; outline the requirements of establishing a program to include the written program, specific lockout/tagout procedures, employee training, and periodic inspections.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and provide feedback
