We Strive to Drive
LOCKOUT-TAGOUT (LOTO) OR LOCK AND TAG is a safety procedure that is used in industry to ensure that electrical switches are properly shut off and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work associated with the switch. It requires that hazardous energy sources be “isolated and rendered inoperative” before work is started on the equipment in question.
The isolated power sources are then locked and a tag is placed on the lock identifying the worker who has placed it. The worker then holds the key for the lock ensuring that only he or she can start the machine. This prevents accidental startup of a machine while a worker is in direct contact with it.
LOTO Audit is the process of auditing a facility’s lockouts and tagouts. This audit will include a check of the facility’s procedures for conducting lockouts and tagouts. It should also include checks of the physical plant (equipment, structures) to ensure that it meets standards for safety, quality, and convenience.
LOTO Audit will serve as a safeguard against any potential hazards, which could result in loss of life or injury to those who work with the equipment.
LOTO Audit involves auditing the safety of your facility and its equipment, as well as doing a functional evaluation of the safety functions of your facility. The audit should be conducted by an expert who understands lockout/tagout procedures and protocols, so that you can make sure that you are doing everything correctly.
The purpose of this program is to provide a system for the lockout/ tagout (LOTO) of energy isolating devices and therefore protect employees from potentially hazardous energy. Wherever possible, energy-isolating devices should be locked out. Before the employee’s services, repair, or perform maintenance, the machine or equipment must be isolated from all potentially hazardous energy, and the isolating energy device(s) from the machine or equipment must be locked and tagged out.
This program applies to all authorized and affected employees. It does not apply to cord and plug-type equipment provided that the person performing the service is in control of the unplugged cord.
The study will be done on the various locations and will be finalized during the site visit depending upon the condition of the site.
The Lockout Tagout (LOTO) safety course from Safety First Training is an OHSA-based program that teaches proper lockout/tagout equipment procedures, required lockout tagout devices, hazardous energy sources, injury prevention, and legislative requirements.
The purpose of a LOTO audit is to verify that the proper procedures are in place before employees are allowed back into a critical area after it has been shut down due to an emergency or other situation. The goal is to prevent any incidents from occurring in the future.
