When thinking about lockout tagout, it is important to consider not just how effective the

procedures are today, but how adaptable they are in the event of a change, tomorrow. This

change could be in the form of regulatory updates, machinery updates, plant floor plan changes,

plant relocation, personnel changes, or any one of many other potential changes which can occur

requiring an update to your lockout tagout procedures.

If you think about your procedure and don’t know the answer to that question, it is probably a

sign that something needs to be updated. Updates don’t always have to do with the present, they

can also involve planning for the future. And if you fall into this category, don’t be alarmed; this

is where most companies are today.

But to be proactive, and to ensure proper business continuity, you want to review OSHA

Standard 1910.147 thoroughly to understand lockout tagout, and to allow you to make the

necessary tweaks to prepare you for what is to come. This can be a daunting task given how

complicated Standard 1910.147 can be, but it is nearly vital for any company seriously dedicated

to workplace safety.
