Lockout Tagout (LoTo) - What and Why

Every year thousands of workers get killed or injured while performing repairs or maintenance on industrial equipment or machinery. Many of these accidents are caused by the uncontrolled release of energy. In Europe however, several regulations exist, requiring that all energy sources are turned off and "locked out" while machines are being serviced or repaired.

What is it?

Lockout Tagout is a planned safety procedure which involves turning off the energy supply of industrial machinery and equipment whilst maitenance work or repairs are being carried out. This procedure protects workers from the risks posed by live machinery or electricity.

Why Lockout/Tagout?

  • It helps to prevent errors being made.
