General LOTO Safety Meeting 

All employees should be aware of the dangers of hazardous energy. Conducting periodic reviews of your LOTO policy and safety plan gets all workers on the same page.

LOTO Safety Toolbox Talk for All Employees

Lockout/Tagout Toolbox Talk for Affected Employees

When it comes to equipment suddenly starting up, affected employees may be more at risk for injury than authorized employees. According to OSHA, about sixty-three percent of workers injured by the release of energy each year are production workers. 

Train your affected employees in lockout/tagout safety:

LOTO Procedures and Safety for Authorized Employees

Authorized employees must be equipped with the right tools (a lock or tag and key for each man) and the right training to ensure everyone remains safe on the floor, in the silo, and wherever workers are in the danger zone during equipment maintenance. 

Your LOTO training program must include initial and periodic/new hazard training that results in an understanding and demonstration of safe work procedures. 

Hold this toolbox talk as a refresher for your trained, authorized employees:
