Lockout Tagout Procedure Development

Rapid LOTO™ Lockout Tagout Program logo
Lockout procedures provide detailed instruction on how to isolate and lock each energy source for a given piece of equipment, helping to prevent the startup of machinery or equipment that may result in injuring a worker.  Our team of certified lockout technicians and safety experts work together to provide your team with the most effective and accurate lockout program in the industry.

Scope of Work

Procedures to be developed to isolate any prime movers with two or more energy sources. Lockout Tagout procedures are to be developed in compliance with OSHA CFR 29 1910.147, Z 244.1, or international requirements. Alternative Methods and Task Procedures can also be developed as part of the program.

Rapid LOTO™ Program

Martin Technical’s RAPID LOTO™ program is a proprietary system developed by Martin Technical that allows  more accurate lockout procedure development with faster turnaround time. Our professional lockout technicians use Rapid LOTO™ lockout software, and an in-field process to label equipment in the field. LOTO placards are developed and reviewed daily, keeping the information at hand relevant and fresh. Placement of the lockout placards on your equipment can often be done the next day.

Energy Isolation Device Labeling

Energy isolation devices such as electrical disconnect or ball valves often lack identification. Martin Technical uses in-field labeling processes to mark equipment for accurate identification of energy isolation points.

We offer a variety of labeling tags and labels to meet the most difficult environments or to match your existing system

Lockout Tagout Work Process

PHASE I – Pre-Site Visit Onboarding

Prior to coming on-site to write procedures, our team will meet with you remotely to understand your needs and equipment, select the procedure templates, and prepare your program for success.


The first phase is to identify all equipment subject to LOTO regulations and the energy sources that feed the equipment. This is the most labor-intensive part of the LOTO program.

Equipment is surveyed on-site by a certified lockout tagout field technician experienced and knowledgeable of LOTO processes as well as electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and thermal equipment.


Using the information from the data collection phase the procedures are developed for each piece of equipment in accordance with OSHA CFR 29 1910.147.

The procedures for each piece of equipment outline the scope, purpose, authorization, rules, and techniques to be utilized for the control of hazardous energy.


Written procedures are reviewed by team members and sent to the customer for approval printing the procedures.


Procedures are printed, laminated including a quality control check to make sure all procedures have been included.


Lockout Tagout placards will be applied to the appropriate equipment by a certified lockout technician.


Training for Authorized employees and consultation with management providing proper information to implement the program.
