Video Transcript

Powered equipment and machinery make our jobs easier and help us to be more productive. The machine that we use can run on a number of different forms of energy while this energy help us to do things we could never do by ourselves, because of its great power it can also be dangerous, we need to be careful when we work around it. For example, energy related injuries often occur when one person is working on equipment and someone else inadvertently turns on the power or on the equipment back in to operation. To help guard against these situations, OSHA has enacted lock-out/tag-out regulations, these regulations apply in most industrial and commercial situations and protect on overall setup, repair or maintenance of equipment from the energy that is use to run these machines. OSHA estimates that these laws save over 100 lives and prevent over 60,000 injuries each year.

The concept of lock-out/tag-out is fairly simple, the objective is to disable the machine as being service by isolating it from its energy source its source of power. to do this locks, tags and other mechanisms are place on energy isolation devices such as switch boxes and valves. Lock-out/tag-out basically involves using your common sense. The lock-out step shuts off or isolate a machine source of energy, tagging the machine tells other people the type of work that is being perform on the machine. Situations were lock-out/tag-out procedures should be use occur more often than we realize, they includes;

  • Repairing Circuits
  • Cleaning and Oiling Machinery
  • Cleaning Jammed Mechanisms
  • Rebuilding Equipment
  • Performing Machine "Set-Up"

So, now that employees will know how to deal with these situations safely the OSHA lock-out/tag-out regulations call for all facilities to implement an energy control plan. This plan must include written lock-out/tag-out program consisting of two major components. Lock-out/tag-out procedures for all of the powered equipment and machinery in the facility and a plan for training employees about these procedures.

As we have discussed, there can be different types of energy associated with a machinery and equipment we work with the most common are electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic. Each of these type of energy can exists in to states, active and stored. Energy is active when it is being used to perform work such as when an electric current flows in a machine to turn rollers and gears. However, energy can also exists in a stored state waiting to be use. An example of this is the electricity that held in capacitors which are use in many machines. Any type of energy can be dangerous in both active or stored forms, so we need to remember to use lock-out tag-out procedures when working with all types and state of energy. 

There are many types of lock-out tag-out devices that can be use to isolate a piece of equipment from its energy source the most common are padlocks, chains and valve clamps. More specialize devices, key blocks and pins are often use with hydraulic or pneumatic systems. Tag-out devices provides visual warning that work is being perform on a machine or piece of equipment. The tags identify the person or persons who are working on a machine and can also indicate why the equipment is out of service. Remember, tags only provide information alone they will not secure energy isolation devices so whenever possible they should be use with locks not by themselves.

If you are involve in activities requiring lock-out tag-out procedures your employer will provide the locks, tags and other devices you will need, these must be identify as lock-out/tag-out devices only, they cannot be use for any other function and may not be share with other workers. You should also never use non-designated devices for lock-out tag -out. For instance, you cannot remove a padlock from a locker or toolbox and use it to lock-out an electrical panel. Lock-out tag-out devices must be easy to identify as well as durable, they should be able to stand up in a normal operating environment. Finally, locks must be difficult to remove so that they cannot be taken off by accident. Only certain employees will be authorized to install lock-out tag-out devices. These employees must be able to recognize hazardous energy sources as well as the type and magnitude of the energy associated with each one, they must be also be aware of the methods and devices that are use to control these energy sources. 

People who work with or around the machines and equipment that are service in lock-out tag-out situations are designated by OSHA as affected employees, since they maybe affected by the work that is being done. These employees must know the purpose of your facilities energy control procedures and how they are used. they must also be informed whenever lock-out tag-out work is being in their work area. Affected employees are not however permitted to restart or re-energize the machines once they are lock-out.

When a piece of equipment needs to be lock-out there are several steps that should be taken. First, all the necessary people must be notified once this is done you can proceed with locking out and tagging the machine's energy sources. You should use the lock-out tag-out mechanisms that are designed for the energy isolation devices you are working with, remember common energy isolation devices include things such as electrical panels, circuit breakers and valves. As you work make sure to consult your facility written energy control plan and follow company policy.

We've discussed how energy can exists in both active and stored states, so after you complete your initial lock-out tag-out procedures you may need dissipate energy that's still stored in a machine that you are working on. How you do this will depend on type of system you're dealing with. There are a number of techniques you can use, for hydraulic or pneumatic equipment you may have to release built pressure by adjusting valves or installing blinds and piping to stop fluid from moving within a system. Electrical system may require grounding to drain off stored electricity. For any type of equipment you may need to release sprain tension or dissipate extreme cold or heat. After dissipating any residual energy you may still have to block off parts that could move while you are working and install additional lock-out tag-out mechanisms to complete the lock-out of the system. 

Once you have performed all of your lock-out tag-out and energy dissipation procedures you should test the machine to make sure that it won't operate. For electrical systems, you may first want to use a volt meter to double check that no electricity is flowing. Next, press all start button and throw all switches and and levers that would normally be use to activate the equipment. After you have determined that your lock-out procedures are working return all of the switches to their off position. In most situations, work can then begin on equipment you are servicing. 

There are some special situations where additional procedures must be followed when locking tagging out a machine. One of the most important of this occurs when you have personnel change during the time your servicing the equipment. In these situations, it is important to maintain continuity. First, personnel from the new incoming work shift must install their lock-out tag-out devices. Then the locks and tags installed by the departing work shifts should be remove. Other special situations, arise when multiple piece of equipment are powered by the same energy source or the piece of equipment you are working on is linked to other equipment. Here, supervisor should be contacted before any lock-out tag-out work is perform.

Another special situation occurs when you encounter systems that must stay on while they are being service, because the functioning of the equipment is essential to the facilities normal operation, in these cases hot work guidelines need to be followed. While they don't normally occur with 120 volt systems if you are working with higher voltages, you need to be aware the possibility of an arc flash. 

Arc Flash is occur when a short circuit is created in the air between two points where electricity is being conducted or between one point of the electricity and the ground. Arc Flashes can be extremely dangerous, they are essentially explosions and an addition to the force of the blasts itself produce intense heat and a shotgun like spray of molten metals. Arc flashes can be cause by a number of things including;

  • accidental contact with "live" parts or wires
  • having an object that conducts electricity like a metal tool come into a close proximity to high amp source of current
  • sparks generated by opening breakers or replacing fuses
  • deteriorating insulation or the build up of corrosion on electrical terminals
  • fumes or chemical vapors in the air that make it easier to conduct electricity

Energy sources, control panels and other equipment with a risks of arc flash exists are often mark with specific warning labels, so be sure to look for them whenever you are doing an electrical lock-out. If you see an arc flash warning consult your supervisor to determine the proper procedures for working on the system. Sometimes a buddy system must be use when you're performing lock-out tag-out procedures particularly when the power source is not inside of the operating portions of the machinery. In this situation, one person works on locking out the power while the buddy observe ans test the machinery. There are also times where a group of people work together on a lock-out machine. In these cases, lock-out tag-out devices designed to permit more than one worker to simultaneously lock-out the same power source must be used. Each authorized employee must affix their own locking tag to this group lock-out tag-out device. If a number of groups are going to be working on a same machine, one employee can be authorized to represent each group.

Outside personnel such as contractors can also become involve in lock-out tag-out operations. If contractor personnel are working in the area, facility representatives need to inform them of any internal lock-out tag-out activities that are going which could affect them. If the contractor themselves are performing lock-out tag-out work they must inform facility representative of their lock-out tag-out activity.

Once the work on a machine is completed whether it is setup, maintenance or repair proper lock-out tag-out release procedures must be followed to return it to service. First, you need to remove all essential tools and other materials from around the machine. Next, clear any affected personnel from the immediate area then you should check to make sure that the machine is ready to operate this includes verifying there's no load on any electrical circuits. Each employee who installed a lock-out tag-out device on a machine must then personally remove the device. In emergency situations, management personnel can be authorized to remove a device but only when the original employee is unavailable and can not easily recalled, when this happens the employee whose lock was removed must be told while the lock was removed before he resume his work. Once all the lock-out tag-out devices have been removed the equipment should be test run. If you cannot start the equipment and verify it is functioning correctly from the location where the lock-out tag-out devices have been installed, you should use the buddy system for this testing.

During some lock-out tag-out procedures such as when equipment is going through prolonged shutdown for rebuilding or major maintenance situation can arise where a machine must be temporarily restarted. In these cases, this temporary start up should be handled exactly as a normal release and restart. First, lock-out tag-out devices are removed and the release procedure is followed, the machine is then restarted. Once the temporary restart has been accomplished normal procedures must again be followed to re-secure the lock-out tag-out devices and isolate the machine's energy sources. At the completion of any type of lock-out tag-out procedures the locks and tags that have been use must be return to their home, some facilities have special routines that must be followed if this is the case the devices are typically stored in a specific location and employees are required to sign the return of each device in a lock-out tag-out log. If you have any questions as to your return procedures they can be found in your facilities written lock-out tag-out program.

Now that we have taken and look at general lock-out tag-out procedures and some special situations that we may encounter. Let's look at some of the rules for performing lock-out tag-out on specific type of power system. When working with electrical system, remember the object of lock-out tag-out is to eliminate the electricity that normally flows to the equipment that is being service. The specific steps you need to take for each piece of equipment in your facility will be spelled out in you facility's written lock-out tag-out program. But there are some general principles that should always be followed no matter what machine you are working on.

First, identify all of the equipment's energy sources, shut off the equipment at the point of operation before disconnecting it be careful explosion can occur when power is disconnected while lines are under load. The switch is on most switch boxes or panels are located on a right hand side. To cut the power, stand to the right of the switch box, turn your head away from the box and use your left hand to move the switch to the off position then use a padlock and tag in appropriate lock-out tag-out procedures to isolate the energy source. Remember most boxes have to places that you can attach a lock, one will lock the box shut while the other one will lock the power off, make sure that you put your lock on the correct one. If there is more than one source of electric power to the machine it maybe easier or necessary to lock-out a main panel.

Some specialize equipment may require you to remove fuses, in these cases it is not enough to pull the fuse out of the box, the box must also be lock and tag. If you find out that you can't use standard lock-out devices on a fuse box, consult your supervisor. Once lock-out tag-out procedures have been completed on the electrical system you should try to start and operate the equipment, if your lock-out has been done correctly you shouldn't see any movement. Yo also need to test the circuit with a test meter or similar device, don't forget a vary capacitors integrated into to he electrical system, they may contain stored electrical charges. So make sure that you check the machinery you are about to service to see if it has circuits and includes capacitors, if it does you will need to ground the capacitors before starting your work.

Hydraulic and pneumatic equipment has to be treated differently than electrical machinery with this type of systems lock-out tag-out usually involves pipes and valves. In these situations, the hazard is the potential high pressure release of steam, gas, hydraulic fluid or other liquids. to adequately lock-out these systems you need to use a padlock and chain or some type of valve clamp, once these devices are in place you can install the tag. Remember, just like stored electricity existing pressure in hydraulic lines can be hazardous as well, so you should bleed any pressurized line before beginning work. Pipe dividers cold blinds are useful when you're working with particularly complex systems, installing blinds, segments piping allowing you to do sectional bleeding, this provide the ultimate protection in these situations. A good  way to test the effectiveness of your your lock-out on hydraulic and pneumatic systems is to look for downstream valves that you can crack to see if any pressure still exists.

There is one additional precaution that should also be taken when you're working with hydraulic or pneumatic equipment. This system often include heavy moving parts, during lock-out you need to make sure that they can't slip. Because of the nature of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment these parts can often be affected by vibrations from nearby vehicle traffic or other machine operations as well. Devices such as wedges, blocks or pins can be combat all of these situations by holding the moving parts securely in place. You may also need to isolate lock-out hydraulic and pneumatic machinery to make sure that the moving parts are hassle free by passing forklifts or other equipment. Barricades or other devices can be use to help limit this type of traffic, in some case, you may even need to arrange for the shutdown nearby machinery.

Lock-out tag-out is essential when you're working on most equipment and machinery. Remember these basics; 

  • you must identify all of the energy sources for the equipment you are working on. 
  • each worker must attached their own lock-out tag-out device at a power source
  • equipment and systems must be tested  after locks and tags are in place
  • the person removing the last lock-out device must make that the work on the machine is completed and that is safe to operate
  • common sense, communication and good knowledge of lock-out tag-out procedures.

These are the keys to everyone's safety when you are working on powered equipment.
