What is the purpose of the lockout tagout checklist?

A lockout tagout checklist helps workers who maintain or repair industrial equipment and heavy machinery avoid accidents caused by unintended re-energization and exposure to hazardous energy. It also serves as a physical record of the LOTO program, containing information such as the nature of work, hazardous energy sources, and the employees or personnel involved in the procedure.
