Venue: Online Event
|Event Date/Time: Jun 12, 2012||End Date/Time: Jun 12, 2012|
Why Should You Attend:
Due to the significant number of fatalities, injuries, fires, spills/releases, and â€œnear missesâ€ in manufacturing, OSHA requires procedures for isolating energy sources and equipment startup. Due to unauthorized persons trespassing or accidentally accessing the area and multiple employers working on these projects they are a significant target for lawsuits for accidental releases of energy or startups. Plaintiff attorneys target the failure of parties responsible for isolating energy sources and controls. Unfortunately, in most cases defendants were not aware of the OSHA requirements until it is too late. In 2011 lockout/tagout ranked 5th in the most common OSHA citation with 3,756 violations.
