Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will focus on the key elements of a comprehensive Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) program, the 3 common LOTO trouble areas, the 5 types of machine guards and what to expect in an OSHA inspection of your LOTO program. A real-world 9-step LOTO procedure that works will also be discussed.

Why Should You Attend:

Does your lockout/tagout (LOTO) program need tweaking? Probably, if:

  • You still find machine and equipment guards in places other than on the machine
  • Your workers insist on removing or modifying guards, despite your warnings
  • You've had near-hit incidents involving hazardous energy

LOTO citations consistently rank in OSHA’s top 10 “most-frequently-violated” list. Don’t become a member of this “should have known better” club. Instead, join us for this webinar that explains why small tweaks to your LOTO program can make a big difference to your workers’ safety and your bottom-line.

This session will dig into the specifics of LOTO and discuss what you can do right now to make your LOTO program and procedures world-class.
