In an industrial environment there are various sources of energy i.e. Mechanical, Electrical, Pneumatic and Hydraulics. Though these energies are basic necessities but failure to control the release of hazardous energy while servicing and maintaining equipment has the potential to cause some of the most severe as well as fatal injuries in our workplaces. Even simple equipment has the ability to permanently alter a human body or even kill a person in seconds. No safety manager wants to face the family of an employee and explain why their daughter or son isn’t coming home because of an avoidable workplace accident. We can eliminate such a scenario with the implementation of LOTO. With lockout-tagout accidents, there are rarely bumps and bruises. BRiGS – iLOTO program with our professional training approach, high resolution graphical procedures and tags, and solutions allow for long-term sustainability of your safety program.
Policy development and deployment will have the following scope of work:Energy Assessment
Brigs will conduct an “as is” situation analysis to draw up the following:Procedure Development
Determine Lockout/Tagout requirements for all equipment, identifying and documenting all energy sources –and create machine-specific procedures containing:Hardware for Isolation
Scope of work in Hardware for Isolation:Training
- Training a specific %age of “authorized”, “affected” and “other” employees.Process
Processes are needed to be put in place to make the program more comprehensive and system based. To do the same the following will be done:
