 LOCK OUT

A lockout is a lock placed on a machine which prevents the power source from being activated accidentally. Here is the safe way to lock out:

- Always use your own lock. If you don't have one, ask.

- When working with others on the same machine, use your own lock — don't depend on their locks for your safety. Lock and tag the circuit box switch if repairs on the machine are being made.

- Lock out all energy sources—this includes hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical energy as well as unattend­ed vehicles.

- Test the machine to be sure the lockout is effective.

- Wait until a relief worker locks out before you unlock at the end of your shift.

- Never pull fuses instead of locking out. The circuit may not be dead and there is no way of knowing who may replace the fuse and when.

- Never loan anyone your key or lock combination.

- Never let anyone remove your lock.

- Never disregard lockout procedures when they are called for. You could endanger the lives of your co-workers in addition to risking your own life.
