    Effective date:

    5/16/2017

    A. Purpose

    This policy establishes requirements at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) for controlling hazardous-energy sources, in any form, that could cause personal injury, by locking out and tagging out those sources.

    B. Persons Affected

    This program is required for all Berkeley Lab employees, affiliates, students, visitors, and subcontractors who may be exposed to hazardous energy while performing any construction, service, maintenance, modification, or demolition activity.

    C. Exceptions

    Persons performing work on projects or sites that do not fall under DOE jurisdiction are not required to follow the requirements of this Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) Program. However, an equivalent LOTO program meeting applicable regulatory requirements will apply.

    D. Policy Statement

    All personnel who perform work on or near equipment in which the unexpected energization or start-up of the equipment, or the release of stored energy, could cause injury shall personally lock out the equipment for the duration of their work.

    D.3 Cord and Plug Equipment

    A detailed explanation of the cord-and-plug exemption from LOTO, including but not limited to requirements for qualifications, conditions allowing for exemption, examples, and restrictions, is provided in Work Process C.

    D.4 Simple LOTO by a LOTO Authorized Person

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions for an Authorized Person to perform a simple LOTO, including but not limited to requirements for authorization, qualifications, conditions allowing for simple LOTO, and a step-by-step procedure, is provided in Work Process D.

    D.5 Complex LOTO by a LOTO Authorized Person

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions for an Authorized Person to perform a complex LOTO, including but not limited to requirements for authorization, qualifications, written LOTO procedures, and a step-by-step procedure, is provided in Work Process E.

    D.6 Complex LOTO Requiring a Responsible Individual

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions to perform a complex LOTO when a Responsible Individual (RI) is required, including but not limited to requirements for authorization, qualifications of the RI, written LOTO procedures, and a step-by-step procedure, is provided in Work Process F.

    D.7 Group LOTO

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions to perform a group LOTO, including but not limited to responsibilities of the Responsible Individual and group LOTO participants, conditions allowing for group LOTO, and a step-by-step group LOTO procedure, is provided in Work Process G.

    D.8 Tagout Only

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions to perform tagout only where the physical construction of the energy isolation does not accommodate the attachment of a lock, including but not limited to conditions and limitations of a tagout-only procedure, responsibilities of the Responsible Individual and group LOTO participants, and a step-by-step procedure, is provided in Work Process H.

    D.9 Subcontractor LOTO Permit

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions to allow subcontractors to perform LOTO, including but not limited to responsibilities of the Responsible Individual, prerequisites for obtaining a subcontractor LOTO permit, Environment/Health/Safety (EHS) Division responsibilities, and requirements for subcontractors to provide their own LOTO equipment, is provided in Work Process I.

    D.10 Shift Change and Transfer of Control

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions for shift changes and transfer of control of locked and tagged out energy sources, including responsibilities of the Responsible Individual and individuals involved in the LOTO transfer, and a step-by step procedure, is provided in Work Process J.

    D.11 Temporary Partial Restoration

    A detailed explanation of the requirements and restrictions for temporary partial restoration of energy to part of the system, including responsibilities of the Responsible Individual and individuals involved in the restoration, applicability, and a step-by step procedure, is provided in Work Process K.

    D.12 LOTO Hardware

    A detailed description of the requirements and restrictions for LOTO hardware, including but not limited to locks, tags, boxes, and devices permitted at Berkeley Lab, is provided in Work Process L.

    D.13 Training and Authorization

    Only persons who have the appropriate level of LOTO training can be authorized to perform LOTO functions. Specific training requirements, including EHS courses, prerequisites, refresher training, and authorizations, are listed in Work Process M, Table M.1. Once LOTO training is complete, specific line-management authorization is required to perform LOTO functions. (Work Process M)

    D.14 Developing LOTO Procedures

    A LOTO procedure is a formal document detailing all steps required to establish the lockout. It is specific both to the equipment or system and to the scope of work. A LOTO procedure is required for all complex LOTOs. The LOTO procedure fulfills the following purposes:

    • It documents the scope of work permitted under the LOTO.
    • It documents the specific isolations established by the LOTO.
    • It serves as the primary communication document for all parties involved in the LOTO.

    A step-by step procedure for developing and approving LOTO procedures is provided in Work Process N.

    D.15 Special Condition LOTO Lock Removal

    LOTO lock removal by someone other than the person who applied the lock is prohibited except under special conditions such as a lost key or unavailable personnel. A step-by-step procedure for removing locks under such special conditions is provided in Work Process O.

    D.16 Periodic Inspections of LOTO Procedures

    All LOTO procedures at Berkeley Lab are subject to periodic quality-assurance (QA) inspection. The EHS Division will coordinate the Laboratory-wide LOTO procedure and QA inspection program, and will certify that inspections have been completed. To meet this requirement, each division must conduct QA inspections of its LOTO procedures and submit the results to the Electrical Safety Group for record-keeping. (Work Process P)

    D.17 Air Gapping

    Air gapping is the process whereby the sources of hazardous energy are physically removed from the work area to such an extent that LOTO is not feasible and not necessary. The air-gapping process requires that:

    • All energy sources must be physically and visibly separated from the work area
    • This separation must be visible without opening any cabinets, manhole covers, etc.
    • The minimum separation distance is five feet, except when approved by the EHS Electrical Safety Group.

    Additional requirements and restrictions are provided in Work Process Q.

    D.18 Interlocked Systems

    Interlocks consist of one or more devices engineered to detect an undesired condition and shut down the equipment or otherwise remove the immediate hazard. Interlocks are not a substitute for LOTO controls and shall not be used or otherwise relied upon for the purpose of protecting persons who are servicing or maintaining equipment. Additionally, an interlock cannot serve as a LOTO energy isolation point, since it does not constitute a positive energy isolation except when permitted by 10 CFR 835, Occupational Radiation Protection. A trapped key interlock system may be used in conjunction with the LOTO Program, but by itself does not meet the requirement for personal LOTO. (Work Process R)

    D.19 Administrative Control

    1. Administrative locks. Administrative locks are used when there is the need to provide "operational control" (control of a system, utility, or facility). Any lock used for a purpose other than LOTO is an administrative lock. Administrative locking does not provide individual personal protection for workers and is not a substitute for personal LOTO. (Work Process S.1)
    2. Tag On. This is used for equipment that must be shut down in a controlled manner and not accidentally de-energized. When a circuit breaker, disconnect switch, or energy-securing device is readily accessible to any employee, the circuit breaker or disconnect switch may be tagged to indicate that it is not to be turned off. (Work Process S.2)

    D.20 LOTO Coordination

    Some large projects or events require the coordination of multiple LOTO procedures. These events include major maintenance outages, emergency outages, initial building energization, or other large projects. The increased complexity may require the assignment of an overall LOTO Coordinator to ensure that conflicts in schedule, outage planning, and required energized events do not lead to confusion. The LOTO Coordinator must ensure the various Responsible Individuals are properly informed of any changes that will affect their respective LOTO procedures. (Work Process T)
