Kentucky Lockout/Tagout: What you need to know
Kentucky has adopted the federal lockout/tagout requirements for general industry workplaces by reference and has adopted provisions for the use of tags that are stricter than federal rules.
Kentucky has its own federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program. The Kentucky Labor Cabinet, Kentucky Occupational Safety and Health Program (KyOSH) governs both public and private sector workplaces, except for the Tennessee Valley Authority and federal facilities.
