HAZARDOUS ENERGY CONTROL PLAN


1.

Objective:
The objective of this plan is to establish requirements for the
lockout of energy isolating devices whenever maintenance or
servicing is done on machines or equipment. It shall be used to
ensure that the machine or equipment is stopped, isolated from
all potentially hazardous energy sources, and locked out before
employees perform any servicing or maintenance where the
unexpected energization or start-up of the machine or
equipment or release of stored energy could cause injury.

2.

Responsible Individual on site:


The responsible individual on site will be an experienced
electrical technician. Besides, Safety Engineer will be main
responsible for the implementation of this plan.

3.

Affected Equipment:
Following is the list of Machinery/Equipment that will have
maintenance/servicing according to this plan in CAOC 6
Dormitory and Support Facilities Project in Eskisehir, Turkey.
Electrical Panels
Welding Machine
Electrical Heaters

4.

Compliance and Enforcement Policy:


All employees will comply with the restrictions and limitations
imposed on them during the use of lockout. Lock out and tag out
will be performed only by authorized employees All employees,
upon observing a machine or piece of equipment that is locked
out to perform servicing or maintenance, shall not attempt to
start, energize or use that machine or equipment.
If an employee does not follow the restrictions and limitations of
this plan, and if there is no lacking of instruction or training for
this employee, then he will be fired. If any lack of instruction or
training for this employee is realized, then for the first time, the
responsible for this deficiency will be warned, and for the
second time he will be fired.

5.

Sequence of Lockout Procedures:


Following Sequence will be followed during Lockout Procedure
- All personnel will be notified that machinery/equipment will
be locked out for servicing/maintenance.
- The type and magnitude of the energy that the
machine/equipment utilizes will be identified so that the
method necessary to control it will be understood.

Zafer Construction Co.

Page 17 of Safety Plan

Responsible Individual on Site will ensure that


machine/equipment is shut down by normal stopping
procedures.
Responsible Individual on Site will de-activate the energy
isolating device(s) so that the machine/equipment is isolated
from all energy sources.
The energy isolating device(s) will be locked out with
assigned individual lock(s).
Any stored or residual energy will be dissipated or restrained
by methods such as grounding, repositioning, blocking,
bleeding down, etc.
Responsible Individual on Site will ensure that the
equipment is disconnected from the energy source(s) by first
checking that no personnel are exposed, then verify the
isolation of the equipment by operating the push button or
other normal operating control(s) or by testing to make
certain the equipment will not operate.
(CAUTION: Operating controls will be return to neutral or
off position after verifying the isolation of the equipment)

These procedures will be followed in every lock out instance.


6.

Restoring Equipment/Machinery to service:


Following Sequence will be followed while restoring
equipment/machinery to service:
- The machine/equipment and the immediate area around it
will be checked to ensure that nonessential items have been
removed and that all components are operationally intact.
- The work area will be checked to ensure that all employees
have been safely positioned or removed from the area.
- It will be verified that the controls are in neutral.
- Lockout
devices
will
be
removed
and
the
machine/equipment will be re-energized. NOTE: The
removal of some forms of blocking may require reenergization of the machine before safe removal of lockout
device.
- Affected employees will be notified that the servicing or
maintenance is completed and the machine/equipment is
ready to use.

7.

Documentation:
All lockout / tag out incidences will be documented and logged.
All devices used will have the authorized employees signature
and be standardized.

8.

Training:
Safety Engineer, with the help of Responsible Individual on Site,
will provide training to ensure that the purpose and procedures
of the program are understood by all personnel and that they
posses the knowledge and skills required for the safe

Zafer Construction Co.
