Why are the electricial and machinery isolation details sections important, in OHS Online?
This is a really good question and a really important one too! The electrical and machinery isolation details cover all the aspects required to correctly isolate the equipment in question. Both isolation types work in work in the exactly the same way; they identify the equipment or machinery to be isolated, they determine who the responsible persons are for the equipment or machinery and they determine the isolation points of the equipment or machinery which need to be isolated for the equipment or machinery to be safe to work on. Both isolation details types consist of three basic parts:
1/. Equipment details - this allows details about the equipment or machinery to be entered so it is easily identifiable. The lockout tags are also printed from this section.
2/. Responsible persons for lockout - this allows the responsible persons for the equipment or machinery being isolated, to be entered and confirmed.
3/. Equipment isolation points - this allows isolation details for the equipment or machinery to be entered and tagout labels to be printed.
