While performing routine oversight, an Operations foreman at the Specific Manufacturing Capability facility observed several technicians performing an operational maintenance activity. During the performance of the activity operators were using engineered safety devices to protect them from the hazardous energy of the machinery. The foreman questioned them if this activity could be performed using engineered safety devices or if it required Lockout/Tagout. The operators replied that their procedure allowed the use of engineered safety devices to perform minor servicing and adjustment activities during normal production operations. A second review of the procedure concluded that the activity did require a Lockout/Tagout for hazardous energy protection.
