Lockout, Tagout and Alternative Methods (Z244.1)
Employees operating, repairing or maintaining machines or equipment face serious injury risks if hazardous energy is not properly controlled. It explains how to apply three different methods, lockout primary method , tagout or alternative methods, to activities such as constructing, installing, repairing, adjusting, inspecting, unjamming, testing, troubleshooting, cleaning and dismantling machines, equipment or processes. The unexpected release of hazardous energy from machines, equipment and processes can injure workers, damage property and disrupt business operations. By using these standards, safety professionals and employers can protect workers from the unexpected energization or start-up of machines or equipment, and prevent the release of stored energy.

ANSI/ASSE Z244.1-2016: Control of Hazardous Energy: Lockout
OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards and regulations. Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation of the requirements discussed. Note that our enforcement guidance may be affected by changes to OSHA rules. Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information. November 10, Mr. Edward V.
Tag: ANSI Z244.1
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. At the core of these specifications is the user and the supplier of the machinery, and the interaction between these two groups determines the success of the lockout system. The supplier, who is responsible for designing, building, integrating, and installing machines, equipment, or processes, should incorporate all applicable provisions of this standard into their products, so that the user can assure compliance through the establishment of a protection program.
