In 1990, under 29 CFR 1910.147, Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/ Tagout), OSHA mandated that all energy sources be turned off and locked out to protect employees from injuries caused by the release of hazardous energy or the unexpected startup of equipment under repair or service. OSHA estimates that compliance with this standard could prevent 122 fatalities and 28,400 lost workday injuries per year.

According to a January 1999 Industrial Safety and Hygiene News survey, safety and health professionals listed improving overall injury/illness incidence rates and lowering worker's compensation costs as two of the most difficult issues they would face in 1999. Not surprising, they listed compliance with OSHA regulations as one of their most important environmental health and safety strategies. This survey also revealed that they regard training as the top safety strategy in their efforts to protect employees. Additionally, 69 percent polled (76 percent of those in manufacturing plants) put a priority on lockout/ tagout training.

Are your systems identified so they can be properly locked and tagged out? Are your electrical panels and piping systems properly marked so employees know where to lockout these systems? If not...
