Title Guide on lock-out and tag-out procedures for the marine industry
Bibliographic information Association of Singapore Marine Industries (ASMI), Singapore, Republic of Singapore, 2003. 18p. Illus.
Abstract This guide provides guidelines to assist companies in the marine industry in meeting the requirements for the establishment and implementation of lock-out procedures. It also contains guidelines on tag-out procedures so as to ensure that all energy sources to any plant, machinery or equipment are adequately isolated or discharged, and demarcated to prevent inadvertent activation or energization that could cause injury to workers and/or damage to equipment. Appendices include a sample lock-out/tag-out record sheet, a scheme of the general lock-out-tag-out procedure, a list of process and equipment requiring lock-out/tag-out in shipyards, and samples of tags.
