Lockout/Tagout

Lockout/Tagout training program with Cal Safety Solutions in the Bay Area

Avoid huge fines and keep everyone safe.

One of the highest citations issued by OSHA is as a result of companies that do not have or do not implement a Lockout/Tagout program. Let us help you create your program and train your affected or authorized personnel. Anyone who has to work around or on something that can store energy (such as a compressed air tank), a machine that has springs, or a heavy load supported by a mechanical device is affected by Lockout/Tagout. By law, anyone operating or working around this equipment must, by law, be trained on Lockout/Tagout.

Additionally, your company must have a written program that they implement. You may have received additional tools from the manufacturer of your equipment, but this is not enough to keep you and your employees safe. You need a written protocol at your site. You need an expert who knows and understands what the law is.

Save your company potentially millions of dollars in expenses and fines by having and implementing a program. We can help.

GHS is the international standard for the recognition of hazards dealing with the use of chemicals in the workplace.

Any employee that is required to use chemicals of any type in the workplace must be trained in GHS and trained on the proper way to read these new SDS sheets.
