WAC 296-307-32041

What requirements apply to lockout/tagout during shift changes?

During shift or personnel changes, you must ensure that employees follow specific procedures to ensure the continuity of lockout or tagout protection. The procedures must include orderly transfer of lockout or tagout protection between off-going and oncoming employees, to minimize exposure to hazards from the unexpected energization or start up of the machine or equipment, or release of stored energy.
