This procedure is used for equipment that cannot be effectively covered under a two point Lockout Procedure. Multipoint procedures are used where more than two locks are required or for convenience due to frequency of use. Multipoint Procedures are recorded using the Multipoint Lockout Procedure Form. The procedure must be checked and approved by the supervisor or instructor prior to implementation.
Personal Safety Locks must be removed when the work on the equipment has been completed. If the work is theoretical in the classroom environment removal is at the discretion of the instructor in charge of the exercise.
