What’s lockout tagout and why would it apply to me?

Lockout tagout is a safety procedure that makes sure any dangerous machinery and energy sources get turned off. They are kept off to avoid them unexpectedly starting back up while there is maintenance or service work being performed on them. If they were to be prematurely started up, they could potentially harm the individual servicing or maintaining it. OHSA has extensive documentation on lockout/tagout regulations.
