Lockout Policy


Companies have a duty to protect workers both while using equipment and machinery for their intended purpose and when repairing and maintaining that equipment. The primary way of fulfilling that duty is through what’s called ‘lockout,’ which is when a equipment has been turned off and rendered inoperable with the use of a lock. The OHS laws may require employers to have lockout policies that explain when lockout is required, who should be trained on the lockout procedures and the consequences for violating those procedures.


Adapt this Model Lockout Policy for your workplace. Make sure that it’s consistent with the requirements and definitions in your jurisdiction’s OHS regulations. Train all workers who use machinery and equipment on this policy as well as your lockout procedures.
