EHS on Tap: E22 What's on the horizon for OSHA's lockout/tagout rule?

May 01, 2017

lockout.jpgServicing and maintaining equipment is dangerous business, causing up to 50,000 injuries and 120 fatalities, including electrocution, burns, crush injuries, cuts, lacerations, amputations, and fractures, each year. Obviously, a strong regulatory system is needed, but does OSHA’s standard reflect current technology? What are some of the alternative methods that can be used that offer the same protections as lockout/tagout? And lastly, under the new administration, can we expect any changes to OSHA’s lockout/tagout rules or their enforcement?

On this episode of EHS on Tap, Dave Galt, BLR Senior Legal Editor, discusses these pressing lockout/tagout issues.
