EDS conducted a 2011 survey of a broad cross section of the electrical industry that was comprised of 22 companies totaling 507 electrical workers who were asked one question… do you implement your company’s energy control procedures on every job task? The findings were 16 out of 507 said “yes”. These answers reveal that our companies are not annually auditing their employees or enforcing the energy control program (no reprimand). The annual audit is required by OSHA to ensure that employees understand the Lockout / Tagout procedures and the importance of implementing these procedures.
TWO OF THE TOP 10 OSHA CITATIONS ISSUED TO COMPANIES ARE:
“The employer shall determine, through regular supervision and through inspections conducted on at least an annual basis, that each employee is complying with the safety-related work practices required by this section.”
“Retraining. The retraining shall reestablish employee proficiency and introduce new or revised control methods and procedures, as necessary.”
