Managing Isolations for Safe Work

Managing Isolations for Safe Work

During maintenance it is important to take every possible precaution to avoid loss or harm. One important precaution is to isolate all the equipment being worked on from uncontrolled energy sources. Positive isolation should be used where possible and controlled by a system of locks managed by the permit to work.
