Controlling Hazardous Energy
This guide is based on the requirements in Oregon OSHA's standard for hazardous energy control - Subdivision 2/J, 1910.147, which protects employees who could be injured as a result of the unexpected release of hazardous energy. The requirements apply when an employee doing service or maintenance work on a machine or equipment could be injured by the unexpected start-up or release of hazardous energy. Lockout and tagout are the primary methods of controlling hazardous energy.
