Lockout/Tagout

Lockout/Tagout

Failure to control hazardous energy during servicing or maintenance activities accounts for nearly 10% of the serious accidents in many industries, according to OSHA. Proper lockout/tagout (LOTO) practices and procedures safeguard workers from the release of hazardous energy.

The principles and requirements for lockout/tagout apply to most employers whose workers perform maintenance on equipment where the uncontrolled release of hazardous energy, such as kinetic, pneumatic, chemical, electrical, or thermal, is possible, or are exposed to such hazards from the maintenance.

The J. J. Keller® SAFETY MANAGEMENT SUITE provides a wide range of world-class resources for developing, implementing and enforcing a compliant energy control program, including comprehensive inspection checklists, expert training programs, and more.
