||Lockout/tagout describes a set of safety practices and procedures that are intended to prevent workers from using equipment or materials determined to be unsafe or potentially unsafe.
|Cleaning tools & equipment
||The objective of this procedure is to show you how to keep work areas and equipment clean and operational. At the end of each working day clean the tools and equipment you used and check them for any damage. If you note any damage, tag the tool as faulty and organize a repair or replacement.
|Identifying defective equipment
||The objective of this procedure is to show you how to demonstrate warning procedures for isolating vehicles and equipment. Lock out and tag out procedures have been developed to prevent avoidable and unnecessary workshop accidents. The tag notifies other users that the tool or component is dangerous to use.
|Compressed air equipment
||Compressed air is quite capable of penetrating ordinary work clothes as well as your skin, so always handle air equipment carefully and with respect.
|Rolling road & brake testing equipment
||Rolling road and brake testing equipment can be very dangerous. A rolling road should always be stationary before making adjustments to the vehicle.
|Batteries & chargers
||Always treat batteries with care and respect. Be very careful not to create a spark when you are connecting or disconnecting a charger to the battery terminals. Clean the battery terminals and the charger's crocodile clips, and switch off the charger before connecting and disconnecting them from the battery.
|Vehicle inspection pits
||Many people have been injured falling into pits, even when they have been working in or near the pit for a long time. If you have to leave a pit unguarded, do so for the shortest possible time, leave the pit lights on so that it is more likely to be noticed, and restrict general access to that work area.
|Wheel & tire safety||Over inflated tires can explode. When a tire explodes, the tire, rim or components from the tire changer may cause serious injury or death to any person nearby.|
