Lockout protects your workers from injury or accident by ensuring that equipment and machinery is properly isolated during scheduled maintenance, shutdown or whenever workers have to enter the bite for any reason.
“Lockout” means to physically neutralize all energies in a piece of equipment before beginning any maintenance or repair work.
Without proper knowledge and awareness of lockout procedures, workers could be severely injured or killed.
