Hazardous energy exists in many forms across a diverse range of industries across Canada. Lockout and Tagout (or LOTO) is necessary to prevent the accident release of such hazardous energy. Lockout and Tagout standards require hazardous energy sources to be isolated and rendered inoperative before maintenance or servicing work can begin, therefore preventing the devastating injuries and deaths caused by unexpected energization.
