• Title: Corrections and Technical Amendments to Final Rule on Control of Hazardous Energy Sources (Lockout/Tagout)


This document amends the final rule on the Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout)(29 CFR 1910.147) which was published 9/1/89 (54 FR 36645). This action is necessary to correct typographical errors, include some information inadvertently omitted, and to correct some inconsistencies in the preamble and regulatory text. The standard requires employers to develop an energy control program consisting of the adoption and utilization of written procedures for shutting off and disabling machines and equipment whenever maintenance or servicing are performed on those machines and equipment, the instruction in use of the procedure to employees and the periodic inspection of the use of the procedure. This notice amends the preamble and the standard to correct errors or inconsistencies in those components of the final rule. Corrections/amendments are effective: 9/20/90.
