The Easy Guide to Lockout Tag Out
Effective lockout tag out procedures and a diligent workforce are vital for the continued health and safety in the workplace.
Many industrial accidents and serious injuries are caused by the uncontrolled release of hazardous energy.
Whenever anyone is working on plant or equipment a safe system of work is required. When this work entails cleaning, maintaining or repairing plant or equipment the level of risk is increased greatly.
Lockout isolation tags must be fitted to reduce the risk of an incident during maintenance.
The Easy Guide to Lockout Tag Out is a short, succinct and effective reminder to never assume!
After completing this training program, your workers will be able to:
- Recognise a set of procedures before starting maintenance on any plant or equipment
