Many workers have been injured fatally by failure to lock out hazardous energy correctly. The equipment moves unexpectedly and the worker is caught and crushed, electrocuted or otherwise injured.
The purpose of locking out machinery and equipment prior to maintenance or servicing is to prevent unexpected start-up or release of stored energy.
Workplace equipment can be powered by sources of energy that include electricity, gas, compressed air, coiled springs, steam, pressurized liquid and a raised load.
Learn your own company’s procedures for lockout and tagout of equipment. Failure to follow through could earn you a toe tag.
