We have all seen the signs, “Do Not Operate”. But we are only going to move the piece of equipment to the other side of the building. What harm can there be from that? Unfortunately far too many accidents have occurred from people ignoring the Lockout/Tagout signs. Without a thorough understanding of the procedures associated with this subject workers will unnecessarily continue to put themselves in harm’s way. In order to avoid this predicament they need to be given a training course; one that covers all of who, what, where, when, why and how questions.
