A equipment operator returning a forklift to a parking area attempted to hook up the engine warmer cord from a "hot line" and realized that the cord's plug had been cut away and the unit had apparently been driven away with the engine warmer still plugged in. The breaker feeding the hot line was found in the tripped position. The breaker was opened, a Level l Lockout/Tagout was applied to the feeder breaker and zero energy confirmed. Workers then moved the Lock and Tag from the breaker to a clamshell device that was placed on the end of the damaged wire in order to prevent personnel exposure to the wires. An Out of Service tag was not placed on the breaker. The use of the Level I Lockout/Tagout as a configuration control on the end of the wire, when servicing and maintenance was not being performed, was not in compliance with company procedure.
