  • 12. Handling of private clients –<br><br>o From the entrance, are controls are in place to ensure private/one-off customers are directed to safe areas for enquiries and loaded away from the main traffic routes, if required?

  • 13. Speeding – <br><br>o Has a speed limit been established, signed across the site with enforcement in place, if exceeded? <br>o Are speed indicators and ramps used to reduce speed?

  • 14. Site lighting –<br><br>o Are suitable controls in place to ensure all areas are well lit, ensuring there are no dark areas or sections where lighting creates poor visibility?

  • After completing this section, please proceed to the next section

Isolation Review - LOTOTO

  • The purpose of the checklist is to review isolation standards at each location, to establish the current position across all member companies and help to identify improvements to achieve effective isolation standards and common standards across all locations.

    Copy of the location RA, SSOW and Procedures required to accompany this review.

Isolation Procedure / System, followed by stages of LOTOTO

  • 1. Risk Assessment (RA) – Is there a suitable RA in place, which records<br><br>o All relevant staff and contractors confirming their acknowledgement & understanding? <br>o Has the RA process been used to identify improvements following the principles of ERICP, changing process / equipment to reduce and ideally eliminate exposure to machinery?<br>o Do RA’s state that no person can operate machinery when exposed to danger / being in the line of fire?<br>o Are RA’s reviewed regularly to ensure they remain current, with improvements updated and at least annually?<br>o Stop buttons / trip wire – RA states not to be used for isolation?

  • 2. SSOW / Procedures – <br><br>o Is there a SSOW / procedure which details how isolation is to be completed for all isolation requirements on site? (key and captive key isolation)<br>o Are diagrams / pictures used to help the clarity of requirements? <br>o Have all relevant persons confirm understanding of SSOW

  • 3. Procedure training / Authorisations – <br><br>o Are all those persons responsible for completing (Operators) / overseeing operations (Manager / Supervisor) suitably trained in the LOTOTO / isolation procedure, with records?<br>o Are training refreshers planned – suggested 12 monthly?<br>o Is there an isolation authorisation list for those staff and contractors who may need to complete isolation on site?

  • 4. Permit to Work / Pre-Isolation sign off – <br><br>o Is there a PTW system to control all non-routine isolation requirements along with review and sign off before isolation is removed and plant powered up? <br>o Is there evidence of permits being completed as required? <br>o Is there a pre-job style sign off process for isolation which includes all employees and especially when contractors are involved?

  • 5. Personal isolation locks / isolation equipment – <br><br>o Have all staff / contractors who may be required to complete isolation been issued with / have access to personal locks with a unique key. <br>o Is isolation equipment available for all the specific isolation requirements (rotary, circuit breakers etc)? <br>o Isolators should not be able to be locked in the on positions. <br>o Do other workers involved in the works add their own individual padlock to each isolation clasp and retain their own key?

  • 6. Multiple Shifts – <br><br>o Where the isolation has to be applied for more than one shift, is there handover procedures to ensure the isolation remains effective?

  • 7. Identify equipment / Secondary equipment – <br><br>o Has ALL equipment / machinery that has potential for entanglement / stored energy been identified and listed on a central register? <br>o Have all secondary pieces of equipment / machinery been included on the register as required?<br>o Has it been confirmed with a suitably qualified person that electrical isolation systems cut off the main energy supply, not just the control circuitry?

  • 8. Labelling of isolation points – <br><br>o Are all isolators / switches and valves clearly labelled?<br>o Isolation points located as close as possible to the machinery?

  • Isolation - Lock and Clasp

  • 9. Isolation possible / Stored energy / gravity – <br><br>o Can the isolation lock / clasp(s) be placed through EACH isolator for equipment / machinery? PRACTICAL REQUIRED

Key and clasp to support limited captive keys –<br><br>o Are the captive keys kept with the person who is carrying out the activity at all times for the duration of the work? <br>o The individual key requirement for additional workers can be achieved with an isolation clasp and padlock arrangement on the electrical isolator or structure eliminating the captive key being removed and re-energising power.

  • Completion of Works

  • 18. Inspection before un-lock / Last person –<br><br>o Is equipment /machinery inspected to check that all safety equipment / guards are in place and secure? <br>o Is a final check undertaken to ensure that all persons are in a safe location? <br>o Does the last person that removes their padlock accept responsibility for ensuring that the equipment is safe to run and that all of the controls above have been actioned?
