Lock Out / Tag Out

Lock Out / Tag Out


Before working with equipment to perform installation, repairs, or even routine maintenance in a manufacturing environment, precautions must first be taken to de-energize and isolate any relevant energy sources. Lock out / tag out is used to secure those isolated energy sources from accidental activation to prevent personal injury or equipment damage during the work procedures.
