I was recently asked to provide a training module on lockout/tagout after an injury at a customer’s facility. Like most workplace accidents, this incident could have been prevented with a compliant lockout/tagout program.
As we mentioned in our last post, it’s Safe + Sound Week. This program from OSHA is designed to inspire more facilities and worksites to make safety a priority, providing the resources for developing a comprehensive safety program. In this post, we’ll explore the three pillars of this program.
It’s OSHA’s Safe + Sound Week, part of a year-round campaign to encourage workplace safety programs. It’s a great time to evaluate your internal programs. Whether you have something formal in place or not, this post will provide ways for you to improve workplace safety at your site or facility.
