Win the LOTO

LockOut/TagOut.  These SIX steps could save a life.

Each year, approximately 50,000 workers are injured and 120 workers are killed in equipment startup accidents. 

The five most common causes of employee injury or death during lockout/tagout(LOTO) are:

  1. Failure to stop equipment
  2. Failure to disconnect from the power source
  3. Failure to drain residual energy
  4. Failure to confirm that co-workers are not in the path of danger before restarting
  5. Failure to clear work areas before restarting

This week Wachs Services introduces MSDSOnline. With our tremendous growth last year and our continuing commitment safety, Wachs has enrolled in an online Safety Data Sheet subscription service. This system will be a giant leap forward from the old notebook system that many companies still use.
