The Danger of Not Following Equipment Safety Procedures
The OSHA lockout standard in wide use today is important to protecting workers from stored hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical and physical energy when performing maintenance on machinery and building systems. Still, many workers are killed or severely injured every year in situations where following lockout procedures were not followed and would have prevented the accident. Your adoption of lockout/tagout procedures can, and should be reinforced with safety signs that remind people to follow them, placed near the point of possible interaction with hazards.
How have safety signs evolved over the past 100 years? See our timeline of safety sign best practices.
Reinforcing Safety at the Right Time and Place
You’re helping to better reduce risk and protect workers when you purchase Clarion Safety lockout signs and equipment safety labels, reinforcing that lockout procedures be followed as part of your hazard avoidance best practices. Employees may be trained in lockout/tagout, but training can be forgotten in the moment when a jam needs to be cleared or unplanned maintenance needs to be performed. This is where using our signs and labels serve to permanently reinforce the critical need to follow lockout procedures – helping to remind people right at the point where they could interact with potential hazards. Our products use attention-getting, standards-compliant symbols so your safety messages are better able to be noticed and comprehended – all so accidents are avoided and lives are saved from tragedy.
