Lockout / Tagout (1910.147)
The Lockout / Tagout standard protects workers performing service or maintenance on machinery and equipment as they may be exposed to injuries from the unexpected energization, startup of the machinery or equipment, or release of stored energy in the equipment.
Protecting employees is accomplished by an Energy Control Program, including:
- Employee Training
- Machine / Equipment Specific Energy Control Procedures
