Tags / Lockout

Most industrial accidents are caused by the unexpected energization or start-up of machinery/equipment or by the uncontrolled release of energy.  Many of these accidents can be prevented by proper Lockout/Tagout procedures.

Lockout devices 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 OHS around LOTO standards.
