Many serious and fatal accidents happen during the maintenance, repair and inspection of work equipment. Lock Out/Tag Out (often referred to as LOTO) is a phrase to describe the safety procedures for the isolation of machinery, plant and equipment in which energy is used, stored or created. The shutting down, isolation and locking out of work equipment is essential to protect those doing the work.
This Lock Out/Tag Out course outlines the health and safety hazards and risks that LOTO helps to control, and how the principles of LOTO should be applied to risk assessments.
