Introduction to Lockout/Tagout

Many industrial accidents are caused by the unexpected energisation or start up of machines or equipment or by the uncontrolled release of energy.

These accidents can be prevented by proper LOCKOUT/TAGOUT procedures. Current regulations 'Provision and Use of Work Equipment 1998, Section 19 Energy', and the 'Electricity at Work Regulations 1989, Regulation 13' are designed to prevent needless deaths and serious injuries to service and maintenance personnel by controlling unauthorised or accidental use of energy.

To perform service and maintenance work on industrial equipment safely, you must understand the importance of energy control and the current regulations. You must also know how to apply energy isolation and LOCKOUT/TAGOUT.
