Why implement a lockout/tagout programme?
Reduced accident rates and injury costs
EU Figures show that 10 to 15% of all fatal accidents at work and 15 to 20% of all accidents are connected with maintenance. Common injuries include fractures, lacerations, amputations, burns and shocks. Due to the serious nature of many LO/TO accidents, injury-related costs can be exorbitant.
Less downtime, higher productivity
A well-organised LO/TO programme that includes clearly labelled energy sources, easy-to follow procedures, and readily accessible lockout tools can greatly speed up maintenance and servicing activities. Workers can avoid time-consuming tasks such as tracing pipelines and electrical circuits in order to verify the appropriate energy control points. As a result, maintenance work is completed more efficiently, downtime is reduced and machinery is kept running at peak performance levels.
Reduced indirect costs
Accidents can have a significant impact on work scheduling and productivity at the affected job site. The unexpected start up of equipment can also cause extensive damage to the machinery itself, adding the expense of equipment repairs and replacement to the total cost involved.
Best Safety Practice
Lockout / Tagout has become globally recognised as Best Safety Practice for many industries and is a legal requirement in the US.
