Control of Hazardous Energy

The term Control of Hazardous Energy is a term used by OSHA for policies and procedures on disabling machinery for servicing and maintenance to prevent worker injury. This is also commonly referred to as “Lockout/Tagout”, which is short hand for the process of locking out, or disabling, a piece of equipment, and then posting proper signage, or tags, notifying workers that the machine has been disabled and identifying the employee who locked the machine out. This identifies the machine as being in a hazardous state with a worker having direct contact on or in the equipment. Proper training on OSHA standards and Lockout/Tagout processes are essential for operating a safe workspace.
