Energy Isolation is the modern codified term for common lock-out tag-out procedures but has been made more global to include isolation of all energy forms. Every day, millions of workers come into contact with some type of hazardous energy. Tasks that may expose workers to hazardous energy include servicing, inspecting, testing, or adjusting equipment.
