Lock Out Tag OutCleveland State University, in order to provide for a safe and healthy work environment, has developed this Lockout/Tagout program which describes the procedures for service and maintenance on equipment capable of generating hazardous energy. These procedures describe attaching an appropriate lockout or tagout devise on machines or equipment to prevent the unexpected energization or start-up of the machines or equipment or the release of stored up energy. This program is in compliance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Standard 29 CFR 1910.147, The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout), 29 CFR 1910.333, Selection and Use of Work Practices, and the National Fire Protection Association Standard 70E. The OSHA Standards became applicable to instrumentalities of the State of Ohio in March, 1993, by action of the Ohio Legislature.
