Control of Hazardous Energy

29 CFR 1910.147

Lockout/tag out procedures must be followed in order to prevent an unacceptable level of risk to employees from the unexpected energization, start-up, or release of energy from machinery or processes during servicing or maintenance of machines and/or equipment. The lockout ensures that all potential energy is isolated from the equipment being worked on.  

Confined Space Program

29 CFR 1910.146

Employers must protect employees from the hazards of entry into a confined space. A simple workplace evaluation will determine if permit-required confined spaces are present.  

Hearing Conservation Program

29 CFR 1910.95

Any workplace that exposes employees to noise levels at or above 85 decibels (8-Hour TWA on the A scale using a standard sound level meter) must institute a Hearing Conservation Program. The goal of the program is to install workable administrative or engineering controls which will reduce noise levels. If the controls fail to produce necessary sound reduction levels, personal protective equipment and training should be provided to prevent hearing loss.  

Respiratory Protection Program

29 CFR 1910.134

The primary objective of this Code is to prevent air contamination in the workplace, eliminating occupational diseases caused by harmful dusts, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays, or vapors. This can usually be accomplished by generally accepted engineering control measures. When such controls are not feasible, appropriate respirators shall be used. The Code requires employers to provide employees with information and guidance on the proper selection and use of respirators that will safeguard their health and well-being.
