1 Lockout/Tagout/Verify Awareness HOW YOU PLAY A PARTThanks for coming!This sessions topic will be LO/TO/Verify Awareness.1 of the Critical Four*We’ll do a few slides, then a short video.*Show you some actual hardware you might see in use around the plant.*Answer any questions we can or at least attempt to.*Then take the short quiz that was in you chair when you came in, and discuss the answers.So let’s get started with Lo/To/Awareness<ENTER>How You Play A PartOSHA
2 Lockout/Tagout/Verify Procedures The purpose of lockout/tagout/verify is to prevent energy from accidentally being released while a machine or equipment is being serviced.The ultimate goal of lockout/tagout/verify is to protect the safety and health of employees.Secondary is the protection of equipment from damage.Purpose is to prevent accidental release of energy that would hurt someone while they service or maintain a machine or piece of equipment.Ultimate goal is to protect the workers in a facility.Secondary is the protection of equipment.Also complies with the law OSHA
3 Definitions of Terms You Will Likely Hear : Energy Source:--Any Source of Electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, gas, water, steam, air or gravity.<ENTER>Electrical as in a disconnect box on the wall.Mechanical as in a spring on a garage door or lawn mower recoil starter.Hydraulic as in a cylinder on a log splitter.Pneumatic as an air cylinder CFM.Stored air, steam, or water that needs to be bled off for safety purposes.Gravity as on a punch press.
4 Isolating DeviceA mechanical Device That Physically Prevents The Transmission or Release of Energy.Examples are:--disconnect switches, slide gates, valves, blocks, and blind flanges.<ENTER>Disconnect switch-wall boxSlide gates, blocks or blind flanges-You will see these in the video-pertain to pipingValves-As on a steam line or a compressor.E-stops are not used. ANYBODY?Because they can be reset by another workerE-Stops are not included in isolation devices.
5 Equipment Specific Procedures Specific procedures for :shutting down the equipment.<ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER>Written instructions:How to properly shut a particular piece of equipment down.What energy is on a particular piece of equipment.Where to find the isolation devices on that machine to stop it at the source.Will be located in the department close to the machines.isolating from its energy source.blocking from residual energy source.securing equipment for work.
6 Lockout/ TagoutThe placement of a lock and tag on an isolating device which ensures that the equipment being controlled cannot be re-energized until the locking device is removed.The Parts of a lockout/Tagout are:<ENTER>The LockAnd the tags
7 You Will See Different Colored Locks. Blue locks will be equipment locksUsed to protect equipment.Red locksUsed for SGS Personal Protection.Green locksGiven to contractors to use on SGS equipment.Orange LocksGroup locks for person controlling a group lockout.Blue locks protect equipment that has been shut down for repair or needs repair<ENTER>Red locks protect SGS personnelMajor thing to remember is 1 lock, 1key, 1 personGreen locks will be issued to contractors coming into the plant to work on SGS equipmentOrange locks will be for group lockouts. Where more many people are working on a machine and 1 person is controlling the lockout.
8 You Will See Two Different Color Tags In Use Red Tags With Red Locks For Personal Protection Of SGS Employees.Red Tags With Green Locks For Contractor Protection.Yellow Tags With Blue Locks For The Protection Of Equipment .3 MAJOR POINTSOne lock-one key on red locks so everybody knows who is doing what and can be accounted for before the machine is turned back on.Keys on contractor locks controled by contractor and project leader/supervisor.Only “authorized employees place or remove locks and tags.Tags Function is Communication.“Why’ They Shut The Machine Down.Tells “Who” Shut The Machine Down.
9 What A Typical Lockout/Tagout Looks Like With an Equipment Lock.
10 What A Typical Lockout/Tagout Looks Like With a Personal Protection Lock.
11 What A Typical Lockout/Tagout Looks Like With a Contractor & Personal Protection Lock.
12 Occasionally You May See a Yellow Tag Without a Lock On a Piece of Equipment That is Out of Service. This machine is Tagged Outbecause it Will Not Run. The Tag Will Tell You WhatIs Wrong With TheEquipment . Never Attempt To OperateEquipment That HasBeen Tagged .
13 VerifyThe process of operating the start controls, engaging levers, measuring voltage, inspecting lockout devices valves,disconnect switches, blades, piping systems in an area to make sure that all energy sources have been isolated and controlled.Verification is nothing more than trying to start the machine.Pulling the levers, turning the knobs--What ever would release the energy as you would when you operate the equipment.<ENTER>Means you’ve checked everything.MAJOR POINT All start buttons and controls are worked to make sure you have gotten rid of all the residual energy.MAJOR POINT All start buttons and controls are to be returned to the off or neutral position after all energy has been released.
14 You Have a Role You are either an Affected Employee An Authorized EmployeeOr Both !You have an important role.<ENTER>
15 Authorized EmployeeAuthorized Employee-an individual who uses the lockout/tagout /verify procedure on a machine or piece of equipment that is to be serviced or maintained.<ENTER>Person that has been through the entire training.Is schooled in isolating the energy from a machine or piece of equipment.
16 Affected EmployeeAffected Employee-an individual whose job requires him/her to operate or use a machine or piece of equipment on which servicing or maintenance is being performed under the lockout/tagout/verify procedure. This also pertains to any employee whose job requires him/her to work in an area where servicing or maintenance is being performed.<ENTER>Any one who has not been trained and authorized to do lockout/tagout/verify.MAJOR POINT Never puts a lock or tag on a piece of equipment.
17 You May Be BothAn authorized employee and an affected employee may be the same person, when the affected employee’s duties also include performing maintenance or service on a machine or equipment that requires Lockout/Tagout/Verify procedure.This is the case of CFM operators.They are trained that they will be protected when the lubricate the back of the machines.You never put a lock or tag on equipment unless you are authorized.
18 Key To Successful Lockout/Tagout/ Verify is: Everybody working together.Everyone working together for the safety of all.
19 Authorized Employees that: Properly plan the job.Notify all affected employees in the area of work.Shut down the equipment at the operating controls.Isolate all energy sources to equipment.Lock and tag all isolating devicesDissipate all stored or residual energy sources.Verify the isolation.<ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER>Those who perform the work from the planning to the re-start.MAJOR POINT Authorized employees should tell affected employees job is complete before they remove their locks and tags and turn the equipment back on.
20 Affected Employees that: Stay clear of the area as much as possible.Never attempt to assist .Never interfere or tamper with a lock or tag.Report all unusual situation to your supervisor or foreman.<ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER> <ENTER>Those who may be in the area and need to give the job a wide berth.
21 As an Affected Employee: Instrumental in helping protect the safety of yourself and your co-workers.May save someone or yourself from grave injury or even death.This is a very important part of the equation.May mean the difference.
