Lockout/Tagout: The Process of Controlling Hazardous Energy examines the dimensions of society’s challenge associated with the unexpected and sudden release of hazardous energy in the workplace. Edward Grund explores the nature and effect of these occurrences, the private sector’s efforts to combat the problem, various governmental initiatives to develop standards and to regulate employers, and the evolution of control measures to prevent incidents.
The book is intended to act as a guide to construct an effective hazardous-energy control process. The book explains:
- Management of energy sources
- Monitoring, measuring and assessing energy
- Causation analysis
- Energy transfer and special situations
- Applications such as complex isolation, group lockout/tagout, machinery guarding/interlocks, and automated systems
