Lockout/Tagout is more than just putting a lock on the main electrical disconnect to a machine or part of a machine . When you are done, there are 3 very important lockssteps you must do when removing a machine from a Lockout/Tagout state:


1. INSPECT – inspect the equipment to be sure that –

  • all tools and other materials are remove
  • machine is fully reassembled
  • guards and other safety devices are reinstalled

2. NOTIFY – be sure that –

  • all employees are safely positioned.
  • all affected employees are notified of the restart

3. REMOVE – remove lockout devices.

  • Remember that only the person who put the lock on may remove it.
