4 What Is Lockout Tagout Industrial workers are greatly exposed to electrical and mechanical hazards while servicing equipment and machinery. FACT: Unprotected workers are killed or injured due to workplace accidents. Europe imposes firm regulations (several) that require all power sources to be disabled during the maintenance and repair of industrial machinery. Lockout Tagout is an important security procedure that involves shutting off the power to industrial machines or equipment during maintenance or repair Lockout Tagout procedures prevent the accidental activation of equipment and minimizes the electrical and mechanical hazards faced by industrial workers.

5 Definition of Lockout Lockout : The placement of a locking device on an energy control device which COMMUNICATES that the equipment being controlled should NOT be operated until the locking device has been removed THREE main types of energy that LOTO is concerned with are: Mechanical the movement of a piece of machinery E.g. a printing press Chemical - The flow of a substance or chemical in a pipe E.g. steam/water Electrical The flow of electricity in an exposed installation Locking out prevents the release of unforeseen and dangerous energy surges

6 Definition of Tagout TAGOUT is the placement of a tag which indicates that the energyisolating device and the equipment being controlled MUST NOT be operated until the tag has been removed. Tagout helps communicate the risk

7 Lockout Tagout Video Accident Lockout Tagout Is not applied

8 Lockout Tagout Video Avoiding Accidents When Lockout Tagout Is Applied

9 Why Lockout Tagout / Advantages Lockout tagout is normally used when maintenance work is being performed. This could be: Cleaning equipment Adjusting equipment Repairing equipment When equipment is being set up or installed It acts as a tool to communicate what is being done, who is doing it, where and for how long. * Safe Working - protects industrial workers * Prevents accidents and injuries * Protects equipment from damage * Minimizes workplace errors * Raises level of awareness on industrial hazards It is a procedure which clearly communicates risk in the workplace

10 Relevant Legislation The Regulators View HSE The primary responsibility or managing risks rests with those who create the risk in the first place that means employers, self employed and manufacturers or suppliers of articles or substances for use at work Judith Hackett HSE Chair Provision of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 Regulation 19 Isolation from Sources of Energy, Paragraph 2.14, European Union (EU) Guidelines 89/655 "Every piece of equipment must be fitted with clearly visible devices with which it can be separated from every energy source. OSHA (a)(3)(i), The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout), employers to establish a program and utilize procedures for affixing appropriate lockout devices (Occupational Safety and Health Association) Most comprehensive legislation worldwide regarding LOTO is in the US

11 Important New Legislation Health & Safety (Offences) Act 2008 Became Law In January 2009 Not just Manslaughter Act - Homicide Act in Scotland Lower Local Courts Impose fines for non compliance ( 5K- 20K) Up to 12 Months imprisonment If non-compliance resulted in serious injury or death then High Courts would manage case Unlimited fine 2 years imprisonment to life Regulators View We make no apology for taking a strong stance on enforcement Judith Hackett HSE Chair

12 Important New Legislation Health & Safety (Offences) Act 2008 Goals : - Reduce Injuries Motivate those in Health & Safety that they contributed to improved H&S performance Those with Heath & Safety duties that fail are brought to account Consequences:- Fines Imprisonment Directors Disqualification Brand Damage/PR Business Ending Staff Morale/Welfare 21st September T:+44(0)
