Overview

Safety is vital in working on the car. Many teams have made safety plans and large safety documents. The most modern take on safety in LFEV was to make diagrams that were easy to digest and remember for the team.  All of the safety plans are available here as .PDF for viewing and .SVG for editing. All these posters were created in Figma and their .SVG files can be imported for further editing.

Lock-out/Tag-out Safety

This is the Lock-out/Tag-out safety agreed upon by the 2020 – 2021 team. This process assumes that there are two lockboxes: one large main lockbox and one small lockbox. Each member of the team has their own lock & key with their name on it. There is one RSO lock with enough keys for the RSO and all of their assistants. There are two orange SMD locks and keys. One GLVMS lock and key, and a low voltage lock and key. This safety poster should be posted wherever the complete car is being worked on and should be memorized by the entire team as it is often a question at competition.

RSO(Safety Officer) & RSO Assistant Lockout Tagout

This process should be completed by the RSO/RSO assistants who have all been trained to lock out the car. Each RSO/RSO assistant should have matching keys that all go to one RSO lock so any one of them can lock out the car. The RSO lock should be placed inside the lockbox along with the other keys & locks outlined in the graphic.

Lockout Tagout

This process outlines the lock-out/tag-out procedure for all members of the LFEV project. Although it is not mandatory, members should check the lock-out tag-out performed by the RSO before beginning work.

Dynamometer Safety

The dynamometer safety plan assumes the dynamometer TSAL to be mounted on the wall outside the dyno room. It also assumes a speaker or Testing Indicator Noise (TIN) to be connected in parallel with the TSAL so it makes noise whenever the system is energized.
