The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standard addresses safety procedures used in the workplace to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut o­ff and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work. This requires that hazardous energy sources be isolated by deenergizing machines and equipment to render them inoperative.

Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) protects against the physical hazards that can result in serious injuries due to the power of machinery and equipment, where a hazardous energy requires to be isolated, controlled and made safe. Injuries happen to people when they are in contact with an energy level above that which will cut or crush or break bones or cause serious shock.

Government Safety Organisations in many countries will quote poor LOTO as a major cause of serious injury or death in industry. Good LOTO Procedures and Efficient Hazardous Energy Control Programmes should ensure Safe incident-free Maintenance, Repair and Service activities.
