What kind of inspections are good enough and what are the best practices? This standard says the following:. The employer must conduct inspections of the LOTO procedures at least once a year.
The purpose of the inspection is to correct any deficiencies with the LOTO procedure. The employer must confirm that periodic inspections have been performed by identifying and documenting, at minimum, for every inspection: 1 the machine or equipment, 2 the date of the inspection, 3 the employees included in the inspection, and 4 the inspector.

While this standard seems pretty straightforward, if your organization has more than a few LOTO procedures in place, then putting together a LOTO inspection process can seem daunting. OSHA has put together compliance directive CPL to help provide direction to organizations regarding the standards that apply to control of hazardous energy, but the document is pages long and no light reading. Consultants and employers can review these documents to gain insight into what OSHA looks for so that they can better interpret how to comply with the regulation.
To help organizations and companies understand exactly what is required for annual LOTO inspections, please see the highlights below. This article is meant to provide information only, and is not a substitute for safety consultation. Read Weeklysafety. Note: If you have any LOTO procedures that are used less than once a year, then you only need to inspect that procedure when used. For example, if maintenance is required every 3 years on a machine and LOTO is required to perform the maintenance, then perform the inspection at the same time as the maintenance and document the inspection.
Each procedure that the organization has in place must be inspected separately, but they do not all need to be inspected at the same time. For example, if a plant has several machines that are similar and utilize the same or similar types of control measures, then one inspection on one LOTO procedure on one machine may be adequate for the annual inspection.
