Think outside the box for solutions to challenges rather than settling for existing, less-than-adequate options.

Not all devices can be de-energized with off-the-shelf lockout devices, forcing the use of an administrative tagout-only control.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory researchers may now conduct service and maintenance work with confidence, knowing the hazardous energy associated with the equipment is safely managed.
