Control of Hazardous Energy Sources: Lockout/Tagout (LO/TO)

The purpose of the energy control program is to ensure that, whenever the possibility of unexpected machine or equipment start-up exists or when the unexpected release of stored energy could occur and cause injury, the equipment is isolated from its energy source and rendered inoperative prior to servicing.
