Lockout-Tagout

Lockout-Tagout

The unexpected start-up or release of stored energy from various building equipment and systems can cause serious personal injury or fatality.

The Lockout-Tagout program establishes the minimum requirements for the lockout and tagout of energy-isolating devices to prevent an unwanted release of hazardous energy during any servicing, maintenance, or modification activity.

Make sure all machine safe guards are in place at all times so that moving parts are not a danger to you and other workers nearby. If machine safety guards are removed due to maintenance ensure that Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) protocols are closely followed.
