Proposed OSHA Change Potentially Hazardous: Take Survey By August 8

We need your help to oppose potential revisions to an OSHA rule that impacts every print operation in America. OSHA wishes to revise its Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/ Tagout (LOTO)) standard. Possible revisions could jeopardize your ability to operate equipment in an efficient manner as the industry could lose the ability to use the “inch-safe-service method” for makeready and some set-up activities. A task force is collecting data so an industry wide consensus position can be developed and submitted to OSHA. Please complete the survey at https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/5142125/2019-Printing-Equipment-Lockout-Tagout by August 8th, 2019. Be assured that all responses will be kept confidential and only aggregate information will be included in the comments submitted to OSHA. We estimate it will take about 15 minutes to complete the survey. If you have any questions, contact task force leader, Gary Jones, at 703-359-1363 or email at gjones@sgia.org.
