  3. 3. Raytheon Polar Services Company EN-MPS-717Lockout/Tagout Safety Procedures for FEMC Revision 4StationsPurposeThis procedure outlines the proper safety measures necessary to prevent injurywhile conducting any maintenance, repairs, construction, and/or service onpneumatic, hydraulic, and electric equipment and all associated parts.ResponsibilitiesAll Supervisors and Foremen, FEMCOn Project (Fill in Project Name & WBS #) the responsible party isSIGNATURE REQUIREDTerms and DefinitionsLockoutAn energy lockout involves the use of a locking device to remove any switch,valve, raised load, or any other such device from operation. This protects theworker by preventing the use of devices that energize equipment, parts, ormachines.TagoutThis provides a visible warning to all personnel that a particular switch, valve,or energy source is under a lockout procedure. The tag displays the name ofthe worker conducting the lockout/tagout procedure and the date work began.Facilities, Engineering, Maintenance, and Construction (FEMC) Page 1 of 4 pagesContract No. OPP 0000373
  4. 4. Raytheon Polar Services Company EN-MPS-717Lockout/Tagout Safety Procedures for FEMC Revision 4StationsDiscussionThe Lockout/Tagout Safety Procedure for FEMC supplements theEnvironmental Health, and Safety (EH&S) Lockout/Tagout Program (EH-LMNPS-204). The FEMC procedure incorporates the same basic proceduresas the EH&S document, and it provides specific information for constructionand maintenance personnel working under the Engineering Division andFEMC.RequirementsEquipmentLocks, tags, and associated equipmentLocking and Tagging Out Electrical DevicesTo ensure the safety of all personnel, use the following steps prior toconducting work on electrical devices.EquipmentAll locks, keys, tags, and associated lockout/tagout equipment are located inBuilding 136 by the Foreman’s office. FEMC maintains a check out procedurefor locks and issues the number of locks required for each application.1. Personnel from the Electrical Work Center and the PM Work Center usethese locks on a regular basis. Other personnel can obtain locks on an asneeded basis.2. Obtain the proper lockout device from the lockout/tagout station locatedin Building 136. Check out the lock and key and record your name, thedate, and the lock number.Facilities, Engineering, Maintenance, and Construction (FEMC) Page 2 of 4 pagesContract No. OPP 0000373
  5. 5. Raytheon Polar Services Company EN-MPS-717Lockout/Tagout Safety Procedures for FEMC Revision 4StationsNote The worker determines the appropriate lockout device by the typeof equipment receiving service and/or maintenance. Review thetask to determine the proper number and type of locks and tagsrequired to ensure that equipment cannot be energized whilepersonnel work. Please ensure that all energy sources are locatedand locked out. Some jobs require more than one lock and tag.3. Place locks and/or tags on any circuits, equipment, valves, and otherdevices that personnel will be working on to prevent start-up duringservice or maintenance.The placement and removal of locks and tags must be completed by theworker who will conduct the service or maintenance.Note According to the EH&S Lockout/Tagout Program (EH-LMNPS-204), personnel should place hasps and locks on main breakers,electrical panel doors, valve handles, and other devices withlockable points. If it is impossible to lock a device or equipment, atag must be used to alert others that the equipment is underservice. These measures prevent the accidental activation ofenergy sources that could result in injury or death to anyoneexposed to them.4. After placing a lock on the proper location, attach a tag with the lock.♦ Tags must accompany all locks.♦ Tags should include the date of lockout and worker’s name.5. If it is impossible to attach any type of lock on the required equipment,maintenance personnel must attach tags in all locations where switchescan be thrown, valves opened, or any other device activated to energizeequipment or release stored energy.6. Ensure that all energy sources are blocked and/or tagged and that allstored energy is safely released or blocked. Do this before workproceeds.Use of a multi-meter is one means to confirm that energy is successfullyblocked or released.Facilities, Engineering, Maintenance, and Construction (FEMC) Page 3 of 4 pagesContract No. OPP 0000373
  6. 6. Raytheon Polar Services Company EN-MPS-717Lockout/Tagout Safety Procedures for FEMC Revision 4Stations7. Remove the locks and tags once all work is complete. The locks andtags are to be removed by the worker who attached them.Result After successfully completing these tasks, FEMC and Engineeringpersonnel have accomplished approved RPSC EH&S safety practices.ReferencesEH&S Lockout/Tagout Program (EH-LMNPS-204)RecordsThis procedure generates no records.Facilities, Engineering, Maintenance, and Construction (FEMC) Page 4 of 4 pagesContract No. OPP 0000373
