Lockout-Tagout (LOTO) or lock and tag is a safety procedure which is used in industry and research environments to ensure that dangerous machines are properly shut off and not started up again prior to the completion of maintenance or servicing work. It requires that hazardous energy sources be "isolated and rendered inoperative" before any repair procedure is started. "Lock and tag" works in conjunction with a lock usually locking the device, or energy with the hasp, and placing in such position so hazardous energies can not be turned on. The procedure requires that a tag be affixed to the locked device indicating that it should not be turned on.
