Case Study

Oct 19, 2019

Case study:

The operator knows that the equipment will be repaired and locks the personal lock and tag, but does not communicate with the maintenance personnel and execute the Lockout tagout list;

Before equipment maintenance, the maintenance personnel did not lock the personal lock and tag, let alone communicate with the maintenance personnel and execute the Lockout tagout list.

Improvement measures:

Before the equipment maintenance, strictly implement the Lockout tagout procedure of seven steps; Also, after the equipment has been repaired, perform the five steps to remove the Lockout tagout.

Considerations for LOTO application

A Lockout tagout safety procedure must be established for shutting down machinery and equipment and controlling potentially dangerous energy sources when performing maintenance or maintenance activities.

Employees must be trained in Lockout tagout prior to operation.

Outsourcing suppliers must also know your company's LOTO procedures.

LOTO Lockout tagout must be carried out when the outsourcing supplier needs to carry out maintenance work on some equipment of your company. At the same time, it must also let your employees know.

The LOTO Lockout tagout facility must be removed by the emplacers.

When the LOTO Lockout tagout facility is used on different shifts, it is important to do a good job of communication and handover.
