Service Description

This course is designed for personnel performing maintenance and servicing in or around energy sources and equipment that need to be isolated. Over time, all equipment must be maintained, repaired, serviced or upgraded. This work is normally done by maintenance crew. The equipment must be in a safe condition so that the work can be performed. This means de-energizing the equipment, which means removing all sources of energy. The equipment must then be locked out (LO) so that it cannot be turned on or opened during the repairs or maintenance. Locked out equipment is identified with a tag that tells the other workers about the work being in progress. Locking and tagging equipment lets others know that it must not be energized.
