Lockout is the use of a lock or locks to render machinery or equipment inoperable or to isolate an energy source. The purpose of lockout is to prevent an energy-isolating device (such as a switch, circuit breaker, or valve) from accidentally or inadvertently being operated while workers are performing maintenance on machinery or equipment.
Lockout & de-energization: Equipment that is not de-energized and locked out can unexpectedly start when maintenance work is being done, which can result in serious injuries. De-energization is the removing of energy from machinery or equipment. Lockout is the use of lock(s) to render machinery or equipment inoperable or to isolate an energy source in accordance with a written procedure. Maintenance is any work performed to keep machinery or equipment in a safe operating condition. This includes installing, repairing, cleaning, and lubricating the equipment, as well as clearing obstructions to the normal flow of material.
Lockout is required anytime someone is performing a maintenance task on a machine. Employers have a responsibility to ensure they have a lockout program that keeps their people safe. The only way to do that is to understand the requirements ask for help when you need it, and constantly review and update your program.
