Lockout Tagout Procedures are the Cornerstone of a Fully OSHA Compliant LOTO Program
When Are Machine Specific Lockout Procedures Required?
OSHA 1910.147 defines 8 criteria that ALL must be met in order for a machine to not need a machine specific lockout tagout procedure. See the criteria here.
These criteria can be difficult to fully understand. A common industry standard is – if it has more than one source of energy (including stored or residual energy such as gravity, springs, thermal, kinetic, etc.) then a machine-specific procedure is required.
Our technicians are all credentialed safety professionals, many of whom have backgrounds in the US Navy Nuclear program and have developed tens of thousands of LOTO procedures in a multitude of industries.
Our graphical procedure template is an industry-leading format which is user-friendly and increases the likelihood of proper lockout. We can even tailor our format to meet our client’s specific needs.
Our procedures are developed and delivered using a non-proprietary Adobe PDF and Microsoft Excel format that is editable by the end user. No need for a costly subscription-based software program to manipulate your own procedures.
