To ensure the safety of workers, it is crucial to perform the correct lockout/tagout procedures on equipment before it is serviced.
According to the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS), lockout/tagout programs help prevent:
- Contact with a hazard while performing tasks that require the removal, by-passing, or deactivation of safe guarding devices
- The unintended release of hazardous energy (stored energy)
- The unintended start-up or motion of machinery, equipment, or processes
