Affective Lockout Tagout
Affective Lockout Tagout

The purpose of these procedures is to prevent personal injury and damage to property that can result from the unexpected energization of equipment or the release of stored energy.

Affective Lockout Tagout
Servicing and maintenance functions conducted during normal operations are not covered under this procedure. Minor tool changes and adjustments and other minor servicing activities, which take place during normal production operations, are not covered if they are routine, repetitive, and integral to the use of equipment for production. This type of work also is not covered if alternative measures are being used to provide the employee effective protection. Lockout or Tagout is not required if the alternative protective measures enable the servicing employee to clean, un-jam or otherwise service the machine without being exposed to unexpected stored energy (ex. disconnecting an individual motor on a conveyor).

Affective Lockout Tagout

Bottom Line for Affected Employees…

Do not touch equipment that has been locked out. Ask your supervisor for assistance.

Disciplinary Action

Any employee (hourly or salary) who violates any aspect of the plant’s lockout/tagout program shall be subject to severe disciplinary action up to and including discharge from the company.

Follow-Up Questions
1. Who does Lockout Tagout affect?


"Lock Out/Tag Out injuries occur because employees do not recognize the hazard, assume they understand it when they really do not, or get into the habit of taking short cuts which they have gotten away with before"

- Jerry Hartt, a safety consultant, Hartt Safety Services. Baton Rouge, LA

1. The cost of a workers comp claims far exceed the price of implementing a Lockout Tagout training procedure.

2. Insurance companies may offer reduced rates with a Lockout Tagout procedure in place.

3. By effectively training teammates to properly Lockout and Tagout equipment, stress levels may lower due to better working conditions.

4. Lockout Tagout is an OSHA mandated annual training. Being audited without a Lockout Tagout procedure could cost thousands of dollars in fines.

5. Maintenance can be completed safely and without damage to costly machinery.

Affected Employee
- An employee whose job requires him/her to operate or use machinery or equipment that is being serviced or receiving maintenance under lockout, or whose job requires him/her to work in an area in which such servicing or maintenance is taking place.

Authorized Employee - A person who locks out machinery or equipment for needed servicing or maintenance. An affected employee becomes an authorized employee only after Authorized LOTO training when his/her responsibilities include performing servicing or maintenance.
Note: This training is for affected employees only.
Energy Source - Any source of electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, or other energy.
Energy Isolation Device - A mechanical device that prevents the transmission or release of energy, including but not limited to the following:
Energy Isolation Device
a. A manually operated electrical circuit breaker.
Energy Isolation Device
b. A disconnect switch.
Energy Isolation Device
Energy Isolation Device
c. A manually operated switch by which the conductors or circuit can be disconnected from all ungrounded supply connectors and through which no pole can be operated independently
d. A line valve.
Energy Isolation Device
e. A block.
Lockout Tag – A tag used by the authorized employee to post the state of the machine. This tag must have the name of the employee displayed on it.
LOTO Device – A devise designed to prevent the accidental release of energy which has the possibility to cause damage, injury or death.

Gate Valves

Cable Locks
Note: Push buttons, selector switches, emergency stop (E-stop) buttons, and other circuit type devices are not energy isolating devices.


Servicing and/or Maintenance - Work place activities such as constructing, installing, set-up, adjusting, inspecting, modifying and maintaining and/or servicing machines or equipment. These activities include lubrication, cleaning or un-jamming of machines or equipment, and making adjustments or tool changes when an employee could be exposed to unexpected energization or start-up of equipment or the release of hazardous energy.
Troubleshooting - The OSHA standard recognizes that there are times when troubleshooting tasks must be performed with the machinery or equipment energized. This would only involve instances where:
Setting Up - Any work performed to prepare a machine or piece of equipment to perform its normal production operation.
a. the person is qualified skilled tradesperson.

b. it can be proven the power must be on to troubleshoot, and once the troubleshooting task is complete (and servicing and maintenance begins) the power must be turned off.

c. Examples would include tracking a conveyor belt and troubleshooting electrical control circuits.

d. In such cases where total de-energization is not feasible, alternative protective measures shall be considered and should be used where available such as PPE, special tools, blocking, pinning, etc.

Anyone working with equipment that has been placed in a locked out state to have maintenance.
