Setting up a world-class Lockout/Tag out safety procedures in the Workplace

Duration: 75 Minutes
This webinar will provide the requirements to develop a world class lockout/tagout program to be in compliance with safety regulations and standards.
Lockout/Tag out system
Instructor: Edgar Fernandez
Product ID: 501652
In practice, lockout is the isolation of energy from the system (a machine, equipment, or process) which physically locks the system in a safe mode. The energy-isolating device can be a manually operated disconnect switch, a circuit breaker, a line valve, or a block (Note: push buttons, selection switches and other circuit control switches are not considered energy-isolating devices). In most cases, these devices will have loops or tabs which can be locked to a stationary item in a safe position (de-energized position). The locking device (or lockout device) can be any device that has the ability to secure the energy-isolating device in a safe position. Tag out is a labeling process that is always used when lockout is required.

Objectives of the Presentation
The purpose of this program is to ensure procedures are in place to:
  • Prevent injuries from the unexpected energization
  • Activation or release of hazardous energy during servicing or maintenance of machinery or equipment
  • To establish procedures for de-energizing machines, equipment and processes to ensure work can be safely performed
  • Common terminology used in Lockout/Tagout programs
  • Equipment design
  • Communication
  • Training
Why Should you Attend
Safety devices such as barrier guards or guarding devices are installed on systems to maintain worker safety while these systems are being operated. When non-routine activities such as maintenance, repair, or set-up; or the removal of jams, clogs or misaligned feeds are performed, these safety devices may be removed provided there are alternative methods in place to protect workers from the increased risk of injury of exposure to the unintended or inadvertent release of energy.

The main method used and recommended to protect workers from risk of harm in these cases is the use of a lockout/tag out program (LOTO).

Areas Covered
  • Identification of different sources of energies
  • General Lockout/tagout procedure
  • Group lockout/tagout
  • Remote lockout/tagout
  • Electrical interlocks requirements to be considered as lockout
  • Design of energy control procedures
  • Lock stations
  • Equipment design
Who will Benefit
  • EHS specialist and managers
  • Engineering and maintenance personnel and managers
  • Manufacturing personnel and managers
  • Or any other personnel or managers who manage or operate equipment
Topic Background
De-energization is a process that is used to disconnect and isolate a system from a source of energy in order to prevent the release of that energy. By de-energizing the system, you are eliminating the chance that the system could inadvertently, accidentally or unintentionally cause harm to a person through movement, or the release of heat, light, or sound.

Work instructions will identify how the lockout process is to be carried out in a step-by-step manner including how stored energy is controlled and de-energized, how isolation can be verified, and how and where lockout devices are installed. Work instructions are machine, equipment or process specific and include pictures or images of what is being described.

An organization will have one lockout program document, and as many sets of work instructions as required, depending on the number of systems that require lockout.
