  • How will you control the energy?

  • How will you verify control of the energy?

  • Is there a electrical hazard that needs to be controlled?

    Example: contact with live parts causing shock and burns, faults which could cause fires, fire or explosion where electricity could be the source of ignition in a potentially flammable or explosive atmosphere, e.g. in a spray paint booth

  • What is the electrical hazard?

  • How will you control the energy?

  • How will you verify control of the energy?

  • Is there a motion hazard that needs to be controlled?

    Example: conveyors moving, rotor spinning, engine running, or any unexpected movement of a part that can cause injury

  • What is the motion hazard?

  • How will you control the energy?

  • How will you verify control of the energy?

  • Is there a temperature hazard that needs to be controlled?

    Example: hot exhaust, hot coolant, hot hydraulic oil

  • How will you control the energy?

  • How will you verify control of the energy?

  • Are you equipped with the proper PPE for the job and is it in good working condition?

  • Do you have all tools necessary for the job and are they in good working condition?

  • Does the job require rigging of any parts?

  • Are there other people working on the machine that are not Terex team members such as customer supplied mechanics or 3rd party technicians?

  • List all Non Terex Employees working on the machine. Non Terex team members need to be aware of the safety procedures set in place when working on Terex equipment.

  • Does the job require you to enter a confined space?

    Definition of confined space: A confined space also has limited or restricted means for entry or exit and is not designed for continuous occupancy. Confined spaces include, but are not limited to, tanks, vessels, silos, storage bins, hoppers, vaults, pits, manholes, tunnels, equipment housings, ductwork, pipelines, etc.

  • What is your rescue plan for entering a confined space? There must be a minimum of 2 people present in order to enter a confined space.
