A lockout/tag out refers to specific practices and procedures to protect workers from unexpected release of hazardous energy in the form of electrical, mechanical and gas. A lockout typically involves a worker using a device to prevent release of hazardous energy. A Tag out provides information on when the item has been locked out and why.
Participants will gain knowledge on what to look for in recognizing equipment that needs to be locked out/tag out. The purpose of this method od hazard recognition is to recognize the hazard before it takes place and to eliminate it.
