Become thoroughly acquainted with your company's lockout procedures. Here are the steps to a typical lockout:
Identify all the sources of energy and how to control these sources.
Notify all affected co-workers of the planned lockout.
Shut down the machinery using the ordinary method such as throwing a switch or hitting a stop button.
Isolate the machinery from all sources of energy by turning off main power switches, breakers and other controls.
Place a lock on each of these switches and controls. Each lock is accompanied by a tag saying who is doing the lockout.
A lockout is insurance against being struck by moving equipment while you are doing repairs or adjustments. Use it every time — even for quick jobs.
