- FIU Staff - Do You Know What Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) Is? Are You Affected By It In Your Workspace?
Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) launched an updated version of the “Lockout and Tagout” or “LOTO” Program. “LOTO” applies to operations where the unexpected energization of the machine or equipment could cause an injury to employee(s). This program provides safe work practices to effectively control the energy sources of equipment while performing maintenance operations.
Please refer to this memo for more information on how this program may affect your area(s).
If the LOTO program impacts you or your employee(s), or you are unsure, please take this brief survey. This will help EH&S identify if you need additional support.
NOTE: The survey will not take more than a minute to complete.
