Lockout/Tagout Consulting Services

Lockout/Tagout Consulting

The Institute for Environmental Assessment, Inc. (IEA) provides assessment, training and program development regarding lockout/tagout (LOTO) procedures. Training in this area reduces injuries and fatalities on the job. Standards for lockout and tagout procedures, found in 29CFR 1910.147, provide for shutting down (lockout) and/or placing warning signs (tagout) when disabled equipment is being repaired or is not functioning properly. It prevents the mistaken restart or operation of equipment that should not be used.
