Lockout

Publication Date: 
May 01 / 2019
Lockout means that you are cutting off the power supply to a piece of equipment. You can do this by turning off a master switch, or just by unplugging it. Equipment that is not properly locked out can accidentally be turned on, which can result in severe injuries or even death. The most common injuries are severed fingers and crushed limbs, but injuries are sometimes fatal.
