Overview

The LOTO Standard is among the most misunderstood standards that are frequently cited.  Much of the confusion stems from employers not understanding which tasks trigger the application of the LOTO Standard. 

Many employers assume incorrectly that only their maintenance mechanics are covered. There is also misunderstanding about when the Minor Servicing Exception applies. Few employers understand the scope of the annual inspection requirement; and employers’ written LOTO procedures often lack the required detail to withstand scrutiny during an inspection. To be prepared for an OSHA inspection, employers must have a full understanding of all of these issues. This one-hour webinar is intended to provide you with such an understanding of the key compliance issue.

Why you should Attend

The reason that violations of the LOTO Standard are among the Top 5 most frequently cited Standards every year is because employers must self-report work-related amputations and admissions to the hospital within 24 hours. 

As a consequence, it is likely that such cases often involve an employee’s failure to lock out or the employee's decision to reach past guarding into a machine while the machine is still running. 

These cases often result in OSHA conducting an on-site inspection and ultimately result in citations alleging violations of the LOTO Standard.  It is therefore crucial to understand how OSHA interprets an employer's compliance obligations under the LOTO Standard.
