Hazardous energy control (lockout)

The Lockout Standard establishes requirements for controlling potentially hazardous energy associated with machines or equipment when performing installation, maintenance, or repair operations. When left uncontrolled, these various forms of energy can cause serious injury or fatality. The objectives of this standard are to comply with applicable regulations, establish methods to achieve a zero energy state, and prevent inadvertent operation or energization of equipment or processes to protect workers.

See the Hazardous Energy Control (Lockout) Standard for more information.
