When it comes to safety training, no matter the industry, there are always questions regarding requirements and certifications.

ANSI/ASSE Z – The Control of Hazardous Energy Lockout, Tagout and Alternative Methods

As the voice of the U. Instead, we focused on addressing the right thing to do to prevent sudden startup accidents based on the current knowledge available to us. Alternative risk reduction methodology is covered in detail specific to a number of new technologies, including the Packaging, Pharmaceutical, Plastics, Printing, and Steel Industries; Semiconductor and Robotic Applications; and others challenged by the current regulatory limitations. Guidance in working with contractors is also thoroughly detailed.

We took carefully into consideration the improvements made in safety rated technology and other advancements in energy control methods proven by experience to effectively provide protection beyond basic lockout regulatory requirements. Section 8—Alternative Methods A major effort was made in this section to expand guidance beyond OSHA’s limitation to tasks that are routine, repetitive, and integral to production operations. This better protects people doing potentially hazardous work on machinery, equipment, or processes.

This results in end users being better prepared to finalize their own safe work procedures for personnel operating the equipment. By Todd Grover Feb 17, Without question, the methods of protecting workers against the sudden startup of machinery have greatly evolved over the years. Workers should be protected from injury due to unexpected equipment startup or release of potentially hazardous energy.

This standard establishes requirements and specifies the 2z44 of amsi primary methodtagout or alternative methods for the control of hazardous energy associated with machines, equipment or processes that could cause harm to personnel.

Without question, the methods of protecting workers against the sudden startup of machinery have greatly evolved over the years. Subscription pricing is determined by: This ensures analysis is performed prior to startup to allow for proper engineering and personnel preparation. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. IndustrySafe Safety Management Software helps anai to improve safety by providing a comprehensive toolset of software modules to help businesses identify trouble spots; reduce claims, lost days, OSHA fines; and more.


Lockout shall be used unless the user can demonstrate that a well-established alternative method will provide effective protection.

Section 6—The Hazardous Energy Control Program The importance of a well thought out and documented lockout program is broadened by the additional information provided in Section 6.

You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. These assessments detail control measures that determine whether reliance can be placed on technically reliable safeguarding methods to engineer out hazard exposures.

Information on managing change for new or modified equipment in the workplace and methods of timely updating and document control are noteworthy additions.

If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. This section provides guidance on roles and responsibilities of suppliers and builders to design for integral lockability, tamper resistance, z24 the use of control reliable safeguarding technology when applicable. We put together this page with critical information to help answer your key questions about OSHA recordkeeping.

End users snsi new or modified equipment anso can use the guidance in Section 5 in bid specifications to make sure equipment is designed to be readily isolated, securable, and ready to be serviced safely and efficiently. In situations where the task is not well understood or risk assessed, lockout shall be the default protective measure applied to control machinery or processes.


Available for Subscriptions Available in Packages Standard is included in: With a decision to move forward, a risk assessment process is completed to determine and demonstrate that the techniques used will result in negligible risk of sudden startup.

Section 7—Control of Hazardous Energy This section has been expanded significantly to discuss improved hazardous ansii control procedures, the identification of energy isolating devices, verification by testing of the effectiveness of de-energization, as well as new provisions for interrupting energy isolation for positioning and testing requirements. The intent has been to offer a plain-language approach that describes how a range of well proven energy control practices can be accomplished and adapted to a wide range of industries.

Industry has come a long way since then in terms ansl technology and new methods, but there ansk is a long way to go. Important new and expanded information provided in the revision of Z We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. ANSI, on the other hand, has ansk closely at the advancements in technology and solutions provided by a wide range of industries and has reaffirmed or revised Z The standard was written to be scalable to meet the needs of both large and small companies with varying levels of technology present in their machinery and processes.

We held that competent evaluation methods completed specific to the task 11 performed is the best method of determining the feasibility of applying ahsi or justifying dependable alternative methods to lockout.
