LOTO, or OSHA’s Control of Hazardous Energy standard, is a vital component to ensure the protection of employees during machine and equipment servicing or maintenance where unexpected machine energization, start-up, or release of stored energy could cause injury to employees. Whenever any service or maintenance is performed, it is mandatory that all workers understand that a potentially dangerous condition exists when a machine is being serviced and that the people who normally operate the equipment are aware of the servicing activity.
