just safe practice...someone might not know theres a problem or someone is working on the gas system and turn it on..we have to lock and tag jet fuel, steam, hipressure air etc shut off valves when someone is working on the systems so that no one can turn the valve on and hurt or kill someone...could even be an osha requirement..Need4Speed750 said:guess somebody doesnt trust their employees! :lol:
yup lockout tagout...i thought it was a GE term...pretty easy though seeing that the valve was closed and locked out.....Gas Man said:GSXRJack... you are right.... It's called Lock Out Tag Out... LOTO!
I know TONS about this. Especially sense I'm Gas Man and work for a gasoline pipeline company. There is alot more about safety then just LOTO!
