What to do before removing a lockout tagout padlock?

It’s important that all employees respect the safety procedures of any lockout tagout device. Re-energizing machinery is a very hazardous work and all employees performing this activity should be fully trained or supervised to avoid injuries in the workplace.

The machine and its components need to be inspected to assure it is completely ready to perform. Furthermore, everyone needs to be positioned safely and as away as needed from the machine.
