Lockout and Guarding

Electrical workers can be at risk of a major electrical hazard if improper lockout procedures are used when working on energized electrical equipment. Workers can also be exposed to a number of hazards when machines are not properly guarded during maintenance, repair and other activities. These hazards can result in serious injuries such as amputations of limbs or death.
