What is the purpose of lockout devices for circuit breakers?

Circuit breakers need to be locked out to prevent electric shock during LOTO procedures. Circuit breaker lockout devices are designed for use during these situations. With a circuit breaker lockout, the circuit breaker can remain in the OFF position while LOTO procedure is ongoing. These safety devices protect employees by effectively de-energizing energy sources.
