Lockout/Tagout Program

Associated Files


Each employee must know that the purpose of the lockout/tagout procedure is to provide a system for the lockout and/or tagout of energy-isolating devices and thereby protect employees from potentially hazardous energy. Wherever possible, energy-isolating devices should be locked out. Before employee’s service, repair, or perform maintenance, the machine or equipment must be isolated from all potentially hazardous energy and the isolating energy device(s) for the machine or equipment must be locked out or tagged out.
