Construction Safety Tips: Isolation of Operating Machinery (lockout/tagout) [Video]

Frick & Frack are back this week to teach the third Fundamental for Fatality Elimination. What Frack lacks in knowledge on how to work with electrical and wiring, he makes up for by providing a great object lesson in the importance of isolation of operating machinery.

The Importance of Isolation of Operating Machinery

This Fundamental for Fatality Elimination takes written procedures, proper training, the right tools and materials, and hands-on experience to be sure things get done right every time. Failing to follow OSHA procedures for lockout/tagout can easily lead to serious injury or fatality.

Watch below to see how the flick of a single light switch starts the conversation, and nearly leads to disaster.
