The recently updated ANSI/ASSE Z244.1 (2016) standard on lockout, tagout and alternative methods focuses on the methods of identifying and qualifying alternatives to applying lockout to machinery and processes when energy sources must be present to perform assigned work.
This webinar will discuss the ANSI method of justification or practicability analysis of using alternative methods, and examines the risk assessment process using several ways of qualifying the severity and frequency of exposures. Forms used to document alternative methods will be demonstrated as part of scenario based task assessments. Safety and health professionals, as well as machinery builders, maintenance management and industrial contractors will benefit from this presentation.
