On the exterior LOTO seems simple; find your energy source, isolate it, lock and tag it and get the job done. So, if it’s so simple, why do improper LOTO procedures kill or seriously injure workers in British Columbia every year?
In real life situations there are numerous factors that affect employee’s ability to lockout correctly, or in some cases even lockout at all. When minor maintenance jobs are going to throw the whole day behind schedule – safety can be neglected. Every year, workers in British Columbia are killed or seriously injured by machinery or equipment that was not properly locked out. Employees servicing machines or equipment may be exposed to serious physical harm or death if hazardous energy is not properly controlled.
