Lax Lockout Procedures Result in Arc Flash Burns to Navy Worker

Machinery & Equipment MRO reports:

"Nova Scotia authorities concluded that an arc flash accident that burned a worker aboard a navy ship on February 15, 2007, was caused by the employee’s failure to follow established lockout and tag-out procedures, reports Canadian OH&S News."

Having the proper lockout/tagout equipment and supplies, providing the necessary training, and ensuring that lockout/tagout proceedures are always followed are all important in preventing arc flash injuries. There is no excuse when an injury results from an arc flash in equipment that should have been de-energized, and properly locked out.
