2017 LOTO Program Revision

Pub-3000, Chapter 18 revision is now in full effect, as of March 31, 2017!

This is a minor revision to the LOTO Program. The intent is to match efforts in the Electrical Safety Program (ESP) revision to streamline requirements for Qualified Electrical Workers (QEWs) and electrical work, and it also includes a few editorial corrections. This revision is intended to help facilitate implementation for our researcher community.

The revised PUB-3000 Chap 18, Lockout\Tagout Program describes our institutional requirements and processes to ensure proper control of hazardous energy. To review just the primary changes to the document, view the Analysis of Changes powerpoint below:
