This is a continuation of the prior educational session where we will cover topics such as: Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout), Machine Guarding, Flammable and Combustible liquids, Basic Electrical Safety Requirements, and Walking and Working Surfaces. 

Machine safeguards and proper application of the Lockout/Tagout standard are essential for protecting workers from needless and preventable injuries. Machine guarding and Lockout/Tagout violations continuously rank among the top 10 of OSHA citations issued. OSHA's electrical standards address this serious workplace hazard which exposes employees to such dangers as electric shock, electrocution, fires and explosions. The flammable and combustible liquid standard applies to the handling, storage and use of liquids with a flash point below 200 degrees F. To prevent explosion and fire hazards, this standard addresses the primary concern of design and construction, ventilation, ignition sources and storage. Slips, trips, and falls constitute the majority of general industry accidents. They cause 15% of all accidental deaths, and are second only to motor vehicles as a cause of fatalities. The OSHA standards for walking and working surfaces apply to essentially all permanent places of employment.

During this session, participants will be able to: 
  • Define the Lockout/Tagout standard, program requirements, training requirements, and annual upkeep of the program.
  • Identify typical hazards when working around machines, including those types that could pose a major hazard if not properly guarded, discuss several types of machine safeguards and the requirements of each. 
  • Identify exceptions to the Lockout/Tagout standard and what are not. 
  • Describe the main electrical hazards that may be encountered at a worksite, and the types of injuries that can occur from contact with electricity. 
  • Recognize and apply means of protection from electrical injury, as well as the function of a ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). 
  • Define flash point, flammable liquid, and combustible liquid.
  • Identify ways to avoid explosion or fire, and identify/recognize potential sources of ignition for flammable and combustible liquids.
  • Define these terms: floor hole, floor opening, wall opening, standard railing and standard toeboard.
  • Identify the requirements to consider to avoid walking/working surface hazards related to floors, walls, holes, stairways, platforms and ladders or scaffolding.
