During the summer months, it’s not uncommon for companies—especially manufacturers—to shut down their operations for a week or more.
It provides the opportunity to conduct much needed maintenance and repairs on equipment, ensuring productivity in the workplace the rest of the year. Sometimes, old equipment is replaced during summer shutdowns.
If your facility has summer shutdowns every year, you’re probably getting ready for one right now.
Do you have all of the safety supplies you need to ensure equipment and machinery repair work is done without causing any worker injuries?
Before the shutdown begins, make sure you have enough lockout tags to effectively communicate to workers which equipment workers should not try to operate while it’s being serviced. A complete lockout/tagout program is an effective way to keep workers safe during summer shutdowns and throughout the rest of the year.
Appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) is also important to provide during your summer shutdown. From eye protection to hand protection, make sure your workers are protected from safety hazards.
