What is isolation safety?

The aim of an isolation procedure is to:

  • Isolate all forms of potentially hazardous energy to ensure that an accidental release of hazardous energy does not occur.
  • Control all other hazards to those doing the work.
  • Ensure that entry to a restricted area is tightly controlled.

Why is isolation safety important?

Lockout / tagout procedures protect workers from unexpected releases of energy such as electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic or mechanical. These procedures help workers safely isolate energy sources before starting work.

Who is responsible for isolation safety?

The employer is responsible to provide safe systems of work and provide training on the systems to their employees.

When the employees are trained and are given the tools for the job, the employees are responsible to follow these safe systems of work.
