In the industrial environment, there are many dangerous power sources that may endanger employees' safety. Therefore, the U.S. regulation 29 CFR 1910.147 and the European Workplace Regulations require that mechanical and other work equipment isolate its power source and lock it properly to prevent accidental reconnection of the power source.
Locking/tagout - an increasingly popular method in Europe
With the increasing application of the LOTO process in Europe, LOTO is no longer simply a security practice in North America. More and more companies around the world have developed their own specific LOTO process, which also confirms the industry trend of pursuing “best practices”.

Although there is no clear legislation in Europe that requires the implementation of the LOTO process at the workplace, for many specific regulatory requirements, it seems that only the LOTO process is the most appropriate solution. In response to such requests, factories around the world have also implemented the LOTO process that complies with U.S. 29 CFR 1910.147 regulations. 29 CFR 1910.147 requires companies to fulfill at least the following obligations.
1. Develop a complete LOTO policy
2. Make a list of machines that require the LOTO process.
