Definitions Affected Employees: Any employee who performs the duties of his/her job in an area which the LOTO Procedure is implemented. Authorized Employees: A trained individual to whom authority and responsibility is given to implement the LOTO Procedure on machines or equipment. Energized: Residual (left over) energy, stored energy or machines and equipment connected to an energy source. Energy Source: Any electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, or other energy source that could cause injury to personnel. Energy Isolation Device: A mechanical device that physically prevents the transmission or release of energy (on/off switch) Lockout/ Tag out: The placement of a lock and/or tag on the energy isolating device in accordance with an established procedure, indicating the machinery/ Equipment is not to be operated until removal of the lock/tag in accordance with an established procedure.
LOCKOUT / TAGOUT IS REQUIRED FOR THE FOLLOWING OPERATIONS: Anytime an employee may be exposed to a hazard. When a guard is removed. When employees must place a body part inside equipment or an area where they could contact an energy source. When an electrical guard or panel is removed. Installation and set up operations. Any repair of equipment or machines. Preventative maintenance of machines or equipment. A spill in equipment that requires cleaning. A equipment jam. When troubleshooting, repairing or installing electrical circuits. When performing maintenance on moving parts.
Notify Operations Notify all affected employees that equipment is being Locked Out.
Shut down procedure If the equipment is operating, the authorized person will shut it down by the normal stopping procedure (cycle stop, depressing the stop button, etc.)
Application of lockout/tagout devices Isolate the energy by disconnecting any/all sources of power that apply to area of the machine that needs to be worked on.
Authorized person will lock out the energy source of machine/equipment with their personally issued lock. Lock out
Try To Operate After making sure that no one is exposed, push the START button to be certain that energy is properly isolated, stored energy is released and equipment will not operate.
Do all the necessary work Now that the equipment is properly locked out, any needed work can be performed. If you do not have a lock and are not personally locked out, you are not permitted to be in any part of the machine, no matter how much you want to help out.
Remove Locks Remove Locks Remove any tools from the area Replace / shut all guards Remove all lock out devices
Advise operations you are starting up After power is restored, notify operations that equipment is ready to run and production can resume.
Lockout/ Tagout involving shift change continued: At that time, the Employee arriving will apply their lock first --- then the Employee leaving will take their lock off. This will keep the machine locked out at all times.
LOCKING OUT COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE, BUT NOT UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT ENERGY SOURCES NEED TO BE LOCKED AND THEIR LOCATIONS.
