Organization: ASSP
Publication Date: 1 January 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 128
scope:

This standard covers machines, equipment and processes in which the unexpected energization or start-up of the machines or equipment, release of stored energy or the actions of persons could result in harm.

This standard establishes requirements for the control of hazardous energy associated with machines, equipment or processes that could cause harm to personnel. The standard specifies the use of lockout (primary method), tagout or alternative methods to control hazardous energy associated with machines, equipment or processes that could cause harm to personnel.

This standard applies to activities such as erecting, installing, constructing, repairing, adjusting, inspecting, unjamming, set up, testing, troubleshooting, cleaning, dismantling, servicing and maintaining machines, equipment or processes.

NOTE: Different organizations characterize the above tasks as servicing, maintenance or operations. Each organization should evaluate how best to control hazardous energy for tasks that are performed.

This standard does not apply to work on cord and plug connected electric equipment for which electricity is the single source of energy; is solely controlled by the unplugging of the equipment from the energy source; and by the plug being under the exclusive control of the person.

This standard does not apply to hot tap operations involving transmission and distribution systems for substances such as gas, steam, water or petroleum products when they are performed on pressurized pipelines.

This standard does not apply to standard passenger vehicles, personal pleasure boats, private aircraft or recreational/sport type vehicles.
