Lockout / Tagout Programs
Construction sites by their very nature are areas of increased risk. Since the construction of a building is literally a work in progress, there are many components on a construction site that are potentially hazardous to both the workers and the general public. Regulations governing the locking out and tagging out (LO/TO) of potentially hazardous equipment are of particular concern.
ERS will provide your company with the following:
- Annual training
- Machine specific policy
A company is required to have a procedure in place that outlines procedures for controlling hazardous energy during the servicing and maintenance of energized pieces of equipment. The program must include the proper steps for shutting down, securing, and blocking energized equipment as well as the placement and removal of lockout – tagout devices. ERS will ensure that dealership employees are responsible for and trained on proper lockout – tagout procedures.
