35. 4.0 Hazard Communication
36. 5.0 Lockout Tagout (Control of Hazardous Energy)
37. 5.0 Lockout/Tagout Lockout/tagout procedures are designed to prevent accidental startup of machines or equipment, and to prevent the release of stored energy. Through the application of locks and/or tags as direct controls, equipment is isolated from energy sources and injuries to workers are prevented. When work affects or is done in association with Accuride personnel, Contractors should submit their lockout/tagout procedures to the Accuride’s Safety Manager.
38. 5.0 Lockout/Tagout Contractors should, at a minimum, adhere to the following procedures found in 29 CFR 1910.147 – Control of Hazardous Energy.
Controls: Controls that are to be deactivated during the course of work on equipment or circuits should be locked or tagged.
Equipment and circuits: Equipment or circuits that are de-energized should be rendered inoperative and should have tags attached at all points where the equipment or circuits could be re-energized.
Tags: Tags should be placed to identify plainly the equipment or circuits being worked on.
39. 5.0 Lockout/Tagout Contractors have a responsibility to inform Accuride personnel of their respective Lockout/Tagout Procedures.
Contractors must notify Accuride personnel of all potential Lockout/Tagout activity before starting the job so that coordination of procedures can take place.
These procedures are located in the Safety Office and the Maintenance Office.
40. 5.0 Lockout/Tagout Additional Lockout/Tagout training may be required depending on your job scope.
If your job requires you to perform tasks where you have to shut down Accuride Equipment and shut down hazardous energy, then additional training is required.
Please contact Accuride EHS personnel, or facility host to schedule additional training.
41. 5.0 Lockout/Tagout Because of the serious nature of hazardous energy control, if contractors are observed working on equipment requiring Lockout/Tagout and the procedures are not followed, then you will be asked to leave the facility and all future work opportunities will be jeopardized.
42. 6.0 Confined Space Entry
43. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting A confined space is defined as any space that that is large enough to enter and perform work, has a limited means of entry or egress (exit), and is not designed for continuous employee occupancy. Examples of confined spaces include pits, tanks, certain tunnels, and underground vaults.
44. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting Contractors should be familiar with relevant portions of 29 CFR 1910.146 – Permit Required Confined Spaces and use appropriate entry procedures when working in confined spaces, including the following:
45. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting Before entry occurs, test the confined space's atmosphere using a direct reading instrument for oxygen content, combustible gases, and toxic air contaminants.
If entry is permissible, ensure ventilation is continuous, appropriate and adequate.
When required, assign a trained attendant to observe those working in the confined space.
46. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting When a confined space entry includes hot work (welding or cutting), the following additional procedures from 29 CFR 1910 Subpart Q – Welding, Cutting and Brazing should be followed:
47. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting Gas cylinders and welding machines should be left outside the space when work is performed in such spaces as tanks, boilers, or pressure vessels. Heavy portable equipment mounted on wheels should be securely blocked to prevent movement.
48. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting Whenever workers must enter the confined space through a manhole or other restricted opening, some means for his or her quick removal should be provided. This could include a body harness and lifeline attached to mechanical retrieval equipment. An attendant with a preplanned rescue procedure should be available to observe the welder and to initiate rescue should it become necessary.
49. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting When operations are suspended for any substantial period of time, such as lunch or overnight, electrodes should be remove from their holders and arc-welding machines should be disconnected from their power source. If gas welding or cutting is in use, fuel gas and oxygen supply should be shut off with the torch valves and at some point outside the confined space. Where possible hoses and torches should be removed from the space.
50. 6.0 Confined Space Permitting The following slide shows a copy of our Confined Space Permit.

52. 7.0 Hot Work Permitting
53. 7.0 Hot Work Cutting and welding operations (referred to as hot work) are commonly associated with maintenance activities. Hot work equipment, which may produce high voltages or utilize compressed gases, requires special awareness and training on the part of the worker to be used safely. Contractors should control the hazards associated with hot work through the implementation of effective programs required under 29 CFR 1910 Subpart Q – Welding, Cutting and Brazing.
54. 7.0 Hot Work Hot Work Permits: Though not specifically required by federal, state, or local laws, the use of hot work permits at Accuride is required. Hot work permits serve as a checklist for operators and those performing fire watch duties. The Contractor is responsible for obtaining permits for any Hot Work done on-site.
55. 7.0 Hot Work General Cutting and Welding Controls: Areas where hot work is done should be properly prepared. Combustible and flammable materials within the work area should be protected against fire hazards and the operation should not pose a hazard to others in nearby areas. To help achieve this, the following controls should be used:
56. 7.0 Hot Work Cutting and welding operations restricted to authorized, properly trained individuals.
Combustible materials should be moved at least 35 feet from the work site. If this is not possible, protect combustible materials with metal guards or by flameproof curtains or covers (other than ordinary tarpaulins).
57. 7.0 Hot Work Floor and wall openings within 35 feet of the work site should be covered to prevent hot sparks from entering walls or falling beneath floors or to a lower level.
Fire resistant curtains and/or tinted shields should be used to prevent fire, burns to workers, and ultra-violet light exposure.
58. 7.0 Hot Work Fire Watch: A person other than the operator should perform fire watch duties and remain at the work site for at least 30 minutes after hot work operations have ended. Additionally, the following steps should be taken:
59. 7.0 Hot Work A fire extinguisher should be in the area and attached to all portable cutting and welding carts.
