Recently, a client in the food and beverage industry contacted ESC Services for help with a number of issues:

  • Inconsistent and incomplete arc flash labeling
  • Non-compliant programs
  • Lack of uniformity among sites
  • No framework in place for program maintenance

The customer had clear goals and wanted a solution to make lockout/tagout procedures more efficient on downtime critical equipment. ESC engineers dove into this task-heavy project and demonstrated exceptional knowledge, capacity and focus. They were able to provide the client with several deliverables, on time and on budget:

  • Consistent arc flash labeling with uniform implementation across all 50 client locations
  • Creation of an arc flash program that included data collection, modeling, labeling, training and maintenance strategy
  • Lockout/tagout solutions implemented at 19 facilities across North America
  • LOTO programs include procedures, training and policy review
  • ScanESC ™ implemented at 11 locations
  • Alternative De-energization Procedure (ADP) assessments completed at four locations

  • The client’s arc flash program has been successfully maintained for more than five years
  • OSHA-compliant arc flash and LOTO programs executed
  • Program form consistent among existing and new locations
  • ADP program includes return on investment (ROI) calculations so client can prioritize equipment
