What are lockout tagout kits?

Lockout tagout kits are made to prevent physical access to switches, handles, toggles, and any other mechanism that stores potentially hazardous energy. These devices are utilized if the energy source or machine in question is due for maintenance or repairs. The locks will then prevent the accidental or inadvertent re-energizing of the machine, thus keeping maintenance or repair personnel safe from danger.
