The purpose of a lockout/tagout program is to establish procedures for placing lockout and/or tagout devices on energy-isolating components. Following these procedures ensures that equipment is de-energized and unexpected startup and/or release of stored energy is prevented. Injuries to personnel during equipment servicing and maintenance are greatly reduced with a properly implemented lockout/tagout program.
