In 1989, OSHA introduced Standard 29 CFR 1910.147 The Control of Hazardous Energy in order to establish Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) compliance requirements for industry. Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) is the process of
controlling hazardous energy during the service and maintenance of machinery and equipment. These safety specific work procedures safeguard employees and property from accidental injuries, death and destruction. The OSHA Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) Standard 29 CFR 1910.147 outlines 5 requirements that all safety padlocks and devices must meet. Master Lock Safety Solutions™ padlocks and devices were designed to meet all of these
requirements: Durable; Manufactured with materials that withstand usage environment, Substantial; Cannot be removed unless considerable force is applied, Standardized: Clearly differentiated from other devices by color, shape or size, Identifiable; Indicates the authorized employee that applied the device, Exclusive for Safety; Not to be used for purposes other than controlling energy.
