2. Audits are required — every year.
There’s no way around it and don’t waste time looking. The requirement is every procedure, every year. This means each machine-specific procedure in your facility must be reviewed at least annually to ensure it’s still available and accurate.
Additionally, OSHA requires that you audit your authorized employees — those applying locks — to confirm they comprehend the proper usage of the program. Any deficiencies identified during the procedure or the authorized employees audits must be documented and remedied immediately.
