    Objective: To provide an overview of lockout/tagout, including why it is important, the basic roles, and the energy sources needing to be controlled.
    Employers must create a lockout/tagout program if employees work with machinery, and employees must learn and follow the program to keep themselves and others safe.

    The Importance of Lockout/Tagout
    Lockout/tagout procedures prevent the unexpected startup or release of energy from machines and equipment during servicing or maintenance. Employees face severe injuries, such as amputations, fractures, or even death if this hazardous energy is not controlled.
