The 4 Main Elements of OSHA's Control of Hazardous Energy Standard Are:
1. Written Program:
We can assist your facility with any level in the development of your OSHA-required written program. From a fully compliant turnkey program to a simple review of your existing or company-mandated program. We can help you make sure that your written program covers all of the OSHA requirements!
2. Equipment-Specific Procedures:
SimplySMART!Safety has developed thousands of practical energy control procedures (Lockout/Tagout) for facilities of all types. Our team of engineers include former maintenance managers, mechanics, and (CSP) Certified Safety Professionals who not only understand the OSHA regulations, but also know the needs of electricians, mechanics, HVAC technicians, plumbers and production workers. We understand OSHA regulations and exactly what you need to do to not only comply with the OSHA regulations but ensure that your program is protecting all employees. AND we put real care into ensuring that our procedures help you conduct your business more efficiently. We can develop all of your procedures, guide you in the process of developing your own procedures, or provide you guidance on any of your program and training needs. OSHA's Control of Hazardous Energy Standard has been in existence since the late 1980s, yet many facilities and organizations have yet to fully develop good energy control procedures that both comply with the OSHA regulations and are usable by your maintenance department. A well written, supported and trained on program will make you plant both safer and more efficient!
We can help you build a positive LOCKOUT safety culture with our training programs. Each class can be customized to fit a specific audience. Building a positive LOCKOUT safety culture requires building management value and a consensus of support for the program. A production employee needs to know the specifics of the LOCKOUT program and how it applies to their job in a simple and easy-to-use approach. Maintenance and engineering personnel need a higher level of training. They also need training in trouble-shooting equipment safely in an energized state. We can assist your employees with a simple and easy-to-use method to comply with OSHA’s control of hazardous energy standard while trouble-shooting your equipment safely. We are a team of professionals with years of in-plant production floor experience as well as the professional credentials to prove it!
4. Periodic Review of Procedures:
OSHA requires a minimum of one documented annual audit of each of your equipment specific LOCKOUT procedures to verify that they are both valid and effective. We can provide you with a yearly audit service that will be both comprehensive and independent to help you ensure that your facility’s LOCKOUT program remains up-to-date, OSHA compliant, and most of all, SAFE for your employees!
