Lockout / Tagout Resources

Locking out prevents equipment from being accidentally operated.

What is Lockout / Tagout?

Lockout means to cut off or STOP all sources of energy and place a lock on equipment to prevent unintended start-ups and to prevent machinery or equipment from being operated. The purpose of locking out equipment is to prevent a switch, ignition, or valve from being accidentally operated or moved while workers are doing maintenance, cleaning, adjusting or repairing equipment.

Tagout is placing a label or tag on the equipment WITH THE LOCK. Note: Always use a tag WITH a lock and not just a tag.
