“Lockout/Tagout” refers to specific practices and procedures to safeguard employees from the unexpected energization or start-up of machinery and equipment, or release of hazardous energy during service or maintenance activities. Approximately 3 million workers service equipment and face the greatest risk of injury if lockout/tagout is not properly implemented.
