Locking and/or tagging out equipment is essential because it protects employees from unexpected start up while service work is being performed. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued 3,279 citations and $3,217,970 in lockout/tagout violation fines in 1999, making it the second most frequently cited topic.
