What Is Lockout Tagout
Industrial workers are greatly exposed to electrical and
mechanical hazards while servicing equipment and machinery.
FACT: Unprotected workers are killed or injured due to workplace accidents.
Europe imposes firm regulations (several) that require all power sources to be
disabled during the maintenance and repair of industrial machinery.
“Lockout Tagout is an important security procedure that involves
shutting off the power to industrial machines or equipment during
maintenance or repair”
Lockout Tagout procedures prevent the accidental activation of
equipment and minimizes the electrical and mechanical hazards faced
by industrial workers.

Definition of Lockout
Lockout : The placement of a locking device on an energy control device
which COMMUNICATES that the equipment being controlled should NOT
be operated until the locking device has been removed
THREE main types of energy that LOTO
is concerned with are:
Mechanical the movement of a
piece of machinery E.g. a printing
press
Chemical - The flow of a substance
or chemical in a pipe E.g.
steam/water
Electrical The flow of electricity in
an exposed installation
Locking out prevents the release of unforeseen and dangerous energy surges

Definition of Tagout
TAGOUT is the placement of a tag which indicates that the energyisolating device and the equipment being controlled MUST NOT be
operated until the tag has been removed.
Tagout helps communicate the risk

Avoiding Accidents When Lockout Tagout Is
Applied
Why Lockout Tagout / Advantages
Lockout tagout is normally used when maintenance work is being performed.
This could be:
Cleaning equipment
Adjusting equipment
Repairing equipment
When equipment is being set up or installed
It acts as a tool to communicate what is being done, who is doing it, where and
for how long.
* Safe Working - protects industrial workers
* Prevents accidents and injuries
* Protects equipment from damage
* Minimizes workplace errors
* Raises level of awareness on industrial hazards
“It is a procedure which clearly communicates risk in the workplace”

the risk in the first place – that means employers, self employed and
manufacturers or suppliers of articles or substances for use at work”
Judith Hackett – HSE Chair
Provision of Work Equipment Regulations 1998
Regulation 19 – Isolation from Sources of Energy,
Paragraph 2.14, European Union (EU) Guidelines 89/655
"Every piece of equipment must be fitted with clearly visible devices with which
it can be separated from every energy source.“
“employers to
establish a program and utilize procedures for affixing appropriate lockout
devices” (Occupational Safety and Health Association)
OSHA 1910.147(a)(3)(i), The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout),
