Shift & Personnel Changes

How is the continuity of lockout or tagout protection maintained during shift or personnel changes?
  • How is the continuity of lockout or tagout protection maintained during shift or personnel changes?
     
    • Employers must ensure the continuity of employee protection by providing for the orderly transfer of lockout or tagout device protection between off-going and incoming employees. This will help to minimize exposure to hazards from the unexpected energization or start-up of the machine or equipment or the release of stored energy [29 CFR 1910.147(f)(4)].

    (The Appendix to 1910.147 offers non-mandatory guidelines to help employers and employees in complying with the requirements of this section, as well as to provide other helpful information.)
