A Quality Assurance inspector failed to sign onto a Lock-Out/Tag-Out before entering a maintenance work area. Upon arriving at the work location, the inspector obtained the work order, and without reviewing, turned directly to the attached weld data sheet and proceeded to perform the inspection. The inspector made several entries into the work area over the shift before realizing they needed to be on a Lock-Out/Tag-Out for the work evolution. Upon realizing the error, the inspector immediately exited the work area and report the violation.
