Lock-Out Tag-Out
29 CFR 1910.147

The control of hazardous energy, know as lockout tagout, is intended to prevent injuries during work involving repairs, replacements, or modifications to machines or equipment.  LOTO procedures must be followed when service and maintenance activities require an employee to remove or bypass a guard or other safety device.  LOTO procedures must also be followed when service and maintenance activities require an employee to place any part of their body into a machine's point of operation or in a danger zone associated with a machine's operation cycle.
