Highlights of the new ANSI Lockout Standard Z244.1 – Lockout/Tagout and Alternative Methods

Machinery builders are encouraged to use the tenets of Section 5 to enhance the value of their product offerings to customers who are looking for engineering safeguards and information to be part of their purchase considerations.

The standard was written to be scalable to meet the needs of both large and small companies with varying levels of technology present in their machinery and processes. Important new and expanded information provided in the revision of Z As the voice of the U. In situations where the task is not well understood or risk assessed, lockout shall be the default protective measure applied to control machinery or processes.

The new ANSI standard provides detailed guidance on if, when, and how a wide range of alternative control methods can be applied to result in equal or improved protection for people performing specific tasks. The intent has been to offer a plain-language approach that describes how a range of well proven energy control practices can be accomplished and adapted to a wide range of industries.

We consider these engineering controls potentially to be an improvement over the procedural measures provided by the behavior-reliant application of lockout techniques to significantly reduce the likelihood of human error.

This section provides guidance on roles and responsibilities of suppliers and builders to design for integral lockability, tamper resistance, and the use of control reliable safeguarding technology when applicable.

More information is also offered on protective hardware and tags, including the use of warning placards, as well as complex group lockout practices and transfer of responsibility between work shifts, including the use of transfer locks.

Need more than one copy? Instead, we focused on addressing the right thing to do to prevent sudden startup accidents based on the current knowledge available to us. We have no amendments or corrections for this standard.

Workers should be protected from injury due to unexpected equipment startup or release of potentially hazardous energy. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Industry has come a long way since then in terms of technology and new methods, but there certainly is a long way to go. Let me reflect the Z Committee’s position clearly.

When it comes to safety training, no matter the industry, there are always questions regarding requirements and certifications. Section 7—Control of Hazardous Energy This section has been expanded significantly to discuss improved hazardous energy control procedures, the identification of energy isolating devices, verification by testing of the effectiveness of de-energization, as well as new provisions for interrupting energy isolation for positioning and testing requirements.

Available for Subscriptions Available in Packages Standard is included in: However, the committee did not try to align fully with every historic OSHA compliance requirement.

Without question, the methods of protecting workers against the sudden startup of machinery have greatly evolved over the years.

This results in end users being better prepared to finalize their own safe work procedures for personnel operating the equipment.

We held that competent evaluation methods completed specific to the task being performed is the best method of determining the feasibility of applying lockout or justifying dependable alternative methods to lockout.

Add to Alert PDF. With a decision to move forward, xnsi risk assessment process is completed to determine and demonstrate that the techniques used will result in negligible risk of sudden startup. ANSI, on the other hand, has looked closely at the advancements in technology and solutions provided by a wide range of industries and has reaffirmed or revised Z Subscription pricing is determined by: These assessments detail control measures that determine whether reliance can be placed on technically reliable safeguarding methods to engineer out hazard exposures.

We put together this page with critical information to help answer your key questions about OSHA recordkeeping. This offers enhanced opportunities to meet the needs of technology-driven and fast-paced modern workplaces without compromising the safety of personnel working hard to keep the wheels of industry annsi. You may delete a document from ansj Alert Profile at any time. This ensures analysis anwi performed prior to startup to allow for proper engineering and personnel preparation.

Working as a committee member alongside the many industry representatives, trade associations, labor groups, and subject-matter experts contributing to this latest revision has been anssi real privilege and a valuable experience.

The committee has made deliberate efforts not to make major changes in recommended practice that would create completely new obligations for employers and participating personnel.
