De-energization and lockout prevents the release of hazardous energy that could cause injury to workers. This resource is mainly for employers, though the information is relevant for joint health and safety committees and anyone who operates machinery and equipment.

The manual addresses several topics related to de-energization and lockout, including identifying hazardous energy and assessing the risk, creating a de-energization and lockout program, and establishing alternative methods of hazardous energy control.
