Energy Control Procedures - Documentation

What is the employer's obligation in establishing energy control procedures?

Employers must develop, document, and use specific procedures to control potentially hazardous energy when employees are servicing equipment or machinery
[29 CFR 1910.147(c)(4)(i)].

Under what limited situations is documentation of the procedures not required? [29 CFR 1910.147(c)(4)(i)]. (NOTE:) (Exception:)
  • The machine or equipment has no potential for stored or residual energy, or for reaccumulation of stored energy after shut down, which could endanger employees.
  • The machine or equipment has a single energy source that can be readily identified and isolated and the isolation and locking out of that energy source will completely deenergize and deactivate the machine or equipment.
  • The machine or equipment is isolated from that energy source and locked out during servicing or maintenance.
  • A single lockout device will achieve a locked-out condition.
  • The lockout device is under the exclusive control of the authorized employee performing the servicing or maintenance.
  • The servicing or maintenance does not create hazards for other employees.
  • The employer has had no accidents involving the unexpected activation or reenergization of machines or equipment during servicing or maintenance.
