A global leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of specialty steels and alloys
Development of over 9500 Lockout-Tagout (LOTO) procedures for all industrial equipment.
To create a procedure set that raises the bar on LOTO usability, accuracy, and reliability, incorporating human factors in a graphical format.
Sources of technical data such as P&ID drawings, floor plans, equipment technical drawings and labeling of equipment and controls was inconsistent, outdated or missing. Existing LOTO documents were not maintained and included a very high percentage of incorrect data. Subject matter experts were often unavailable due to operational requirements.
APS formed a project team of experienced industrial operations and maintenance training specialists. The team worked with the client personnel including management, engineering, safety, maintenance technicians and plant operators to obtain technical information. APS’ training specialists located and analyzed designated equipment. LOTO documents were developed and coordinated with plant personnel. Each completed LOTO document includes diagrams of equipment locations and lock points, detailed description of procedure steps, and photographs to illustrate the procedure.
Project was completed on time and under budget. Over 9,500 procedures were developed, validated, and approved.
