“Once More, Why Lock-Out, Tag-Out IS Vitally Important” – Part II

LOTO 2 October 2013 LOTO 2A October 2013

A cotton factory worker fell unconscious while standing up after his head became clamped in a machine. The incident happened in Wenzhou, eastern China’s Zhejiang Province. After the worker became trapped emergency services were called to help free him. When firefighters arrived at the factory they found the worker had lost consciousness, but he was held upright because his head was clamped by a machine. Lack of using LOTO, Trip Sensors & Guarding were deemed to be the cause of the accident.
