A manager was visiting block factory and was looking for an employee to discuss an operational matter. In the area he identified an electrician operating a HMI panel. Within 30 seconds, the employee that the manager was looking for was found to emerge from behind a “mould” inside a guarded and energised area.
The manager checked both entrance gates to the area – they were shut and locked. The employee inside the guarded area emerged through the Rise and Set tunnel and climbed over the guard/fence in full view of the line manager. Investigation commenced.
Although there is a recognised and well-embedded LOTOTO standard – this is an example that despite frequent comprehensive briefings, people will still take short cuts and break rules.
