Auditing Compliance with Work Permit Procedures

Description: This session addresses auditing compliance with work permit procedures including lockout / tagout, confined space entry and hot work. OSHA requires most companies to implement procedures for controlling hazardous energy (Lockout/Tagout, Confined Space Entry and Hot Work). They also require periodic evaluations of these procedures. This session will focus on developing a process for objectively auditing compliance with work permit procedures. Upon completion of the program attendees should be able to identify observable and measurable audit criteria, categorize and weight the criteria based on criticality, develop clear definitions for each audit criterion and develop an audit instrument.
