ANSI Z244 1 PDF

Hazardous energy — whether deriving from electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, or thermal sources in machinery and equipment — is the basis of a longstanding issue in many industries. Throughout the past 50 years, in acknowledgement of the high frequency of casualties related to the unexpected release of hazardous energy and related machine start-ups, substantial measures have been taken by employers, unions, trade associations, and government to mitigate accidents. However, despite these efforts, the annual injuries and fatalities caused from hazardous energy release has remained alarmingly high. Specifically, it does this by establishing lockout, tagout, or alternative methods to control the hazardous energy. It is applicable to many activities, including erecting, installing, constructing, repairing, adjusting, inspecting, unjamming, set up, testing, troubleshooting, cleaning, dismantling, servicing, and maintaining machines, equipment, or processes.
