Portland State University maintains a Lockout/Tagout program to ensure worker safety and meet OSHA requirements (OAR 437-002-1910.147).
The program clearly defines procedures for the control of hazardous energy. These procedures cover the servicing and maintenance of equipment where the unexpected energizing, start up, or release of stored energy could cause serious injury.
Envirionmental Health & Safety provides Lockout/Tagout training. If you feel this program applies to you, review the written Lockout/Tagout Program and contact EHS for training.
