What is the purpose of a lockout tagout checklist?

A lockout tagout checklist is meant to help employees make sure that all power sources are properly locked and tagged and all machines are properly disabled. The checklist itself is comprised of several tasks, such as checking if all machines have been deactivated, all employees involved in lockout tagout have their personal safety locks, and the like.

A checklist helps employees dot their i’s and cross their t’s. It can ensure that employees cover all bases and ensure that nothing has been overlooked and no one has made a mistake. Having a LOTO station in a strategic location will help employees tick items off their checklists more easily.
