Our workplace is full of hazards. One such hazard is the unexpected start-up of machines or other unplanned releases of hazardous energy. When equipment and machines start, when electrical equipment becomes energized, when pressurized systems are released, or when gravity sets objects in motion, energy is released to perform useful work. To prevent these things from happening, a lockout/tagout procedure must be done. Your life or a co-worker's life can depend on it.
