Using the Failure Matrix to Evaluate the Safety Management System
Analyze this! Determine the failure mode for the scenario below
Bob, a maintenance worker who has been working for the company for 10 years, received a serious electrical shock while working on a conveyor belt motor. When asked why he did not use the company’s established lockout/tagout procedures he acknowledged that he had thought about it, but that the “old procedures” hadn’t been used for years, and he had done this same task many times before.
