​Machine Safety – LOTO

Access LOTO assessments for individual machines or convert your TEG Risk Machine Safety Risk Assessments to LOTO cards simply using MinRisk.


Australasian regulations require all machinery to have programmes in place to prevent the movement of machinery during cleaning and maintenance. This legislation protects your employees from hazardous energy in the workplace, reducing serious injury and workplace fatalities.

The solution is LOTO (Lock Out – Tag Out) which is an established set of procedures created for every machine at a site or plant to Lock Out and Tag Out each of the energy sources of an individual machine during its cleaning or maintenance cycle.

TEG Risk has a team of engineering professionals that can evaluate the energy sources of your machinery, and determine unique LOTO requirements for each. They will also be able to advise on any residual risks.
