Purpose

What is the purpose of the standard?
  • To prevent injury to servicing and/or maintenance employees due to the unexpected energization or startup of machines and equipment, or release of stored energy. [29 CFR 1910.147(a)(3)(i)].
How is this accomplished?
  • Employers must establish an energy control program, consisting of energy control procedures, employee training, and periodic inspections to ensure that before service and maintenance is performed, machines and equipment that could unexpectedly startup, become energized, or release stored energy, are isolated from their energy source(s) and rendered safe [29 CFR 1910.147(a)(3)(i); (c)(1)].
