According to the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OHSA) :

Ten percent of safety incidents are due to incorrect use of LOTO;

More than a quarter of a million workplace accidents are associated with LOTO each year.

OSHA standard 29CFR1910,147 requires that locker-tag control be performed on machinery and equipment when an employee must remove or bypass protective devices or place any part of his/her body in the equipment area during installation, maintenance, repair, clearing, adjustment, inspection, operation, processing, or construction.

Not for the sake of regulation, but because:

For our own safety

For the safety of our partners

Come home safe and sound for our family

Benefits of implementing LOTO:

Reduce costs and loss of working hours

Reduce insurance costs

Raise insurance cost

Increase productivity

Faster implementation of a complete shutdown and immediate restart of the machine

Boost staff morale and make them aware that their safety comes first
