The purpose of the Lockout Tagout Program is to protect you. Rain for Rent incidents include employees being sprayed with untreated sewage, chlorine and other chemicals while working on systems they thought to be under no pressure.
Application of LOTO When an employee is doing any of the following: –Remove or bypass a guard or other safety device (i.e. bandsaw blade replacement) –Put any part of his or her body into an area on a machine or piece of equipment where work is performed (i.e. pump or engine maintenance) –Is in an associated danger zone during a machine operating cycle (i.e. installing or removing a piping system)
Types of Energy requiring lockout Electrical Mechanical Chemical Thermal Hydraulic Pneumatic Other pressurized systems
Use of Locks & Tags Use only items that have been issued to you Never use another employees lock Your name must be clearly marked on your LOTO Lock. This can be done by –Etching your name or employee number in the lock –Using a tag that is attached to the lock It is recommended you also put your cell phone number on the lock as well.
6 Step LOTOTO Procedure Prepare for Shutdown Shutdown Equipment Isolate all Energy Sources Release Stored Energy Place Locks & Tags Verify Equipment Isolation (Try Out)
Exceptions to LOTO Cord & plug connected equipment –Plug is only source of energy –Plug is under continuous control of one person
Locks Yellow locks are for equipment when using a LOTO Box Red Locks are for people. Every person who is working on the equipment or could be exposed to the hazard needs to be locked out using a red lock.
Lock labels This can be done using a tag attached to the lock or by writing/etching on the lock. Every personal lock (Red lock) must be labeled for who is using that lock. It is recommended that both a name and Phone number be placed on the lock
Group Lockout/Tagout Frequently more than one person will work on a piece of equipment. In such cases each person should attach his or her lock to the equipment. Hasps can hold several locks at a time. This protects everyone working on the equipment since the equipment can’t be energized until every lock has been removed.
Group Lockout/Tagout Equipment can be locked out using a yellow equipment lock Equipment keys can then be placed in a LOTO Box Continued on next slide
Group Lockout/Tagout Personal locks can then be placed on the LOTO Box Additional Keys may be added to the LOTO Box as needed End result All employees are locked out on all equipment who’s keys are in the box. Each employee only needs one person lock to lock out several items
Cable System Open device and insert cable in direction of arrow. Note cable can be tightened, but not loosened, with locks applied.
Locking out a Pump OR The picture at bottom allows others to lock out without the need for the first lock to be removed.
Locking out a valve Many valves are designed to be locked out easily.
Release from LOTO Inspect Area & Equipment Ensure all Machine Guards are in place Move tools away from equipment Inform others of pending startup Restore system connections Remove Locks & Tags Conduct normal startup
Lock Removal An employee may leave for the day and accidently leave a lock on; what do we do now? If a lock needs to be removed by anyone other than the owner of that lock Appendix C – Lock removal form MUST be used. (Recommended a copy of this form be kept in each vehicle) The purpose of the form is to contact the employee and ensure their safety prior to removing their lock. (This is why a phone number on each lock is recommended) Next slide has example of form
Contractors ALL contractors on Rain for Rent property must follow LOTO procedures! Rain For Rent Employees must lockout before any contractor and must be the last to remove a lock. –This prevents a contractor from disconnecting or energizing systems without Rain for Rent knowledge or presence.
In the back of the policy is a flow chart on how to conduct LOTO
Appendix B – LOTO Form & Plan For complex projects Appendix B is a tool to help plan and communicate what is needed for LOTO on that project.
Summary All hazardous energy sources must be controlled and stored energy released Control via energy isolation device (LOTO) Only use designated lock for LOTO All personal locks need to be labeled for whose lock it is Remember to verify isolation Ensure area is clear before restarting equipment
