The Importance of proper Lockout / Tagout Procedures and Practices

It is unclear what this man is doing in the hopper of this wood chipper. Is he inspecting or repairing the chipping mechanism, clearing a blockage, or just having a nap? Whatever he’s doing, we hope he has an approprate lockout / tagout system in place before he crawled into the hopper.

Obviously, the injuries that could occur if the chipper started-up are horrific. Always remember that powered equipment should be de-energised, and locked and tagged out before you attempt to clear blockages, inspect or service the moving parts.

Safetycare now on Twitter! What the heck is Twitter???

Twitter is a social networking service that enables users to send and read messages known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters displayed on the author's profile page and delivered to the author's subscribers who are known as followers. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, SMS or external applications.

How will Safetycare use Twitter?

That is a very good question! Twitter certainly has it's critics saying that the last thing the information world needs is more pointless communications. Safetycare DVDs and videos have always been about accurate, expert, measured and purposeful presentation, so from that perspective we agree!

On the other hand, Safetycare is at the absolute forefront of Safety video technology (with our revolutionary video delivery system Montie), so any technological advancement we have to give it a go!

Safetycare will use Twitter to inform our clients and 'followers' of latest releases, and other relevant OHS developments. How popular and usefel this will be to Safetycare and our clients is yet to be seen! Check us out!
