|Safety Meeting Topics (Bilingual)|
Anyone who operates, cleans, services, adjusts, and repairs machinery or equipment should be aware of the hazards associated with that machinery. Any powered machinery or electrical equipment that can move in a way that would put people in danger is a hazard that can be prevented by following locking or tagging procedures. Failure to lock out or tag power sources on equipment can result in electrocutions, amputations, and other serious-sometimes fatal-accidents.
What are the most common causes of these accidents?
Remember the dangers and be on your guard around any machinery and moving equipment. Even if you dont operate the machinery, you could get caught in it and injured if it isn’t properly disconnected. So what can you do to prevent accidental injury from moving machinery?
Be aware of your personal safety and the safety of others when working with or around moving equipment and machinery. Always follow proper lockout and tagout procedures, even for a quick or minor repair!
