Abstract
The results of a study of automatic interlock devices which are used throughout industry to enhance safety in various working environments are discussed. The four major hazards wherein interlock devices could be used to automatically control the hazard are described. Examples of the hazards are discussed. The location, selection and type of interlocks are summarized. Guidelines for effective interlock application are reviewed. The authors recommend that an engineering evaluation of manual versus automatic methods of performing safety functions necessary to control the four generic hazards described in this report be performed and that an independent study of court decisions where the use, failure, or lack of use of interlocks was the determining factor in deciding a case be conducted.
