There are many types of energy
present in facilities managed by DFCM

 Hydraulic
 Electrical
 Chemical
 Mechanical
 Thermal
 Pneumatic
Each of these types of energy
poses hazards if adequate
precautions are not taken.
Lockout/Tagout Procedures
Every time
equipment that
relies on energy
to operate is
worked on it
MUST be locked
or tagged out.
An exception to this rule is when
you are working on a piece of
equipment that can only receive
energy through a plug.

If you have continuous control of
the cord and plug, no
lockout/tagout is necessary.
Work Request

You should be able to tell
from your work request
if a lockout/tagout will
be necessary.
If you are unsure about
whether a lockout/tagout
is required, check with
your supervisor
  Begin a Lockout/Tagout Log

Lockout/Tagout Logs are available at each facility. If a
Lockout/Tagout is necessary for your work order, get a
Log and complete the necessary information such as
equipment number, name, etc.
Sometimes you may not have access to a Log before you
work on equipment. In this case, complete your
assignment and then fill out a Lockout/Tagout Log after
you are done.
Gather necessary equipment

Every person has a lock
assigned to them for locking out
equipment. This equipment
protects you!
A variety of additional
lockout/tagout devices are
available. Choose one that is
appropriate to your needs.

working on equipment.

Corrective action may be
taken when required safety
procedures are not followed.

Frequently more than one person will work
on a piece of equipment. In such cases each
person should attach his or her lock to the
equipment. Hasps, which are available at
all facilities, can hold several locks at a
