(Control of Hazardous Energy)
The control of hazardous energy (lockout/tagout) standard 29CFR 1910.147 applies to the control of energy during servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment. Normal production operations, with very limited exceptions, that expose an employee to dangerous moving parts are not covered by the lockout/tagout standard, but are instead addressed by the OSHA machine safeguarding standard 29 CFR 1910 Subpart O.
The objective of this program is to protect personnel from injury when lockout of energy is required to ensure the safety of those working in or near danger zones. Work will not begin until all forms of hazardous energy are identified and controlled to a zero hazardous energy level.
