What is lockout/ tagout?

Lockout Tagout is energy isolation.

Lock out, tag out (LOTO) is a safety procedure used in industry and research settings to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut off and not able to be started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or repair work.

It requires that hazardous energy sources be "isolated and rendered inoperative" before work is started on the equipment in question. The isolated power sources are then locked and a tag is placed on the lock identifying the worker who placed it.

The worker then holds the key for the lock, ensuring that only he or she can remove the lock and start the machine. This prevents accidental start-up  of equipment while it is in a hazardous state or while a worker is in direct contact with it
