Lockout & Hazardous Energy Control Policy


OHS laws require employers to implement lockout and de-energization measures to ensure that machinery and equipment is completely and safely de-energized while workers are repairing, maintaining and servicing it so that it doesn’t accidentally start up and kill, maim and injure workers doing the service work. Here’s a Model Policy/Program establishing general rules and safeguards for carrying out lockout operations. In addition to this general policy, you’ll also need specific procedures setting out the technical lockout methods used for particular types of machinery and maintenance operations.


This Model Policy is based on Alberta rules but can be adapted to meet the lockout tagout requirements set out in the OHS regulations of any jurisdiction.
