TITLE
Isolation procedures
ARTICLE
Following a review of isolation procedures and site rules, this quarry has introduced a new training package and a series of practical innovations.

The safety team purchased a new lock-out station consisting of numbered and colour-coded locks for issuing padlocks to contractors and employees when multiple point isolation was required.

All employees were issued with a unique numbered padlock and instructed to retain the key at all times.
The team also issued isolation identity tags to determine who has isolated the plant and on what part they are working.
