Abstract
This testimony concerns the views of NIOSH regarding the control of hazardous energy sources. In response to several questions posed by OSHA, there appeared to be no information available on training procedures in conjunction with tagout procedures. Copies of the Fatal Accident Circumstances and Epidemiology core survey instrument and supplemental instruments for various fatality investigations were submitted, and suggestions were made concerning the requirements needed for a tagout procedure in the event that a lockout procedure was not possible due to the nature of the operation. Minimum requirements to be followed for a tagout procedure were described, including management, training, and hazard isolation considerations. NIOSH concludes that lockout procedures provide better protection than tagout procedures for controlling hazardous energy sources.
