Electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, pneumatic, and other forms of energy run nearly everything in our workplace today. If uncontrolled, each of these poses a significant hazard. Death and serious injury can result from an unexpected startup, or the release of hazardous energy.

OSHA’s lockout/tagout safety training and procedures have been developed to prevent this from happening and to safeguard employees.
