scope:

This Standard specifies requirements for controlling hazardous energy associated with potentially harmful machines, equipment, and processes (including mobile machinery and equipment - see Annex L).Where a CSA Standard or other recognized Standard exists for a specific type of machinery, equipment, or process, it should be used with this Standard to provide the most effective protection.

Purpose

The purpose of this Standard is to specify requirements and performance objectives for procedures, techniques, designs, and methods to protect personnel from injury from the inadvertent release of hazardous energy. Release of hazardous energy can include any motion, energization, start-up, or release of stored energy that, from the perspective of the person(s) at risk, is either unintended or deliberate.

Lockout is recognized as the primary method of hazardous energy control. When the tasks specified in Clause 1.3 are integral to the production process (see Clause 7.4.2), or traditional lockout prohibits completion of those tasks, other methods of control that provide effective personal protection are used. These other methods are based on risk assessment (see Clause 7.4.3).
