Lockout/tagout is a system of energy control procedures that must be used any time machine guards are opened or removed, electrical doors or covers are opened, or any time a person is potentially exposed to injury from the unexpected start-up or energization of equipment. To help prevent injuries during lockout/tagout operations, your organization has developed a written energy control program in accordance with OSHA's Control of Hazardous Energy Standard. This plan must provide training to ensure employees understand its purpose and function.
