When servicing equipment, serious injury or death can occur due to the unintentional release of hazardous energy. Identifying and controlling all hazardous energy sources prior to engaging in maintenance activities is vital to protecting your personnel.
Enforcing proper lockout/tagout (LOTO) procedures and training helps to prevent the accidental release of hazardous energy. LOTO programs reduce the number of injuries/fatalities at your facility and helps you avoid some of the most common OSHA citations. Herzig Engineering conducts on-site data collection to identify and photograph all energy isolation points.
Using that information, our engineers work to ensure your facility has the appropriate documentation to implement straightforward LOTO procedures. Our creation of thorough and specific hazardous energy control programs and labels focuses on applying the requirements of OSHA — 29 CFR 1910.147, OSHA — 26 CFR 1926.417, NFPA 70E, and ANSI/ASSE Z244 to properly standardize these safeguards and minimize the risk your employees face.
