PDC 4 - The OSHA LOTO Standard Is Over 10 Years Old - Where Is Your Hazardous Energy Control Program Today? - A Benchmarking Class

Organized by: Robert Moats; EORM, Sunnyvale, CA and David Simpson; Intel, Folsom, CA

Target Audience: Intermediate (2-10 Years Experience)

This half day course will provide an intensive discussion of the control of hazardous energy covering the broad spectrum of requirements in the applicable OSHA regulations. The information will presented will draw from the presenters' extensive experience in establishing and developing hazardous energy control programs from both the perspective of a consultant and a senior EHS manager in a factory environment. A brief overview of the pertinent regulations will precede in-depth presentations of the presenters' techniques in the basic areas of equipment hazards analyses, preparation of written procedures, inspection of those written procedures. Also addressed are other relevant and related areas of this topic to include electrical safety, confined space entry, machine guarding, contractors, and the differences in state OSHA plans versus federal OSHA requirements. Participants will be given material, which includes analysis of the relevant code sections, many additional and valuable references, and sample working forms. The focus of this course is for experienced EHS professionals who have had difficulty establishing or sustaining an effective energy control program.
