How to Comply With OSHA's Machine Guarding and Lockout/Tagout Program Requirements

Gain an understanding of how OSHA’s lockout/tagout procedure can be achieved to protect workers from hazardous equipment.

For many years, two of OSHA’s top ten most frequently cited violations have addressed inadequate machine guarding and lockout/tagout programs. Employers often struggle with balancing the need to meet production goals, while at the same time comply with OSHA’s machine guarding and lockout/tagout requirements. Workers must have access to machines to perform their work, including servicing and maintenance. Guarding and deenergizing equipment can impact the ability to efficiently complete work on machines. This topic will help those individuals responsible for evaluating these situations and implementing solutions that will allow workers to complete the work that must be performed and, at the same time, protect those workers from the hazards associated with the unexpected energization of machines. One of the most difficult scenarios employers have to address involves the application of OSHA’s minor servicing exception under the lockout/tagout requirements. This information is critical for employers, so they can develop an understanding of how OSHA interprets the minor servicing exception, including the alternative measures of protection referenced in 29 CFR 1910. 147.
