New Hampshire Lockout/Tagout: What you need to know
New Hampshire does not have a federally approved occupational safety and health regulatory program for the state; therefore, private sector workplaces must comply with federal occupational safety and health standards.
The state has adopted its own hazardous energy lockout rule for public sector employers (state and local government agencies) in general industry workplaces that is substantially less comprehensive than the federal rule. There are no general tagout requirements.
The U.S. Department of Labor/Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) administers and enforces federal workplace safety and health requirements in private sector workplaces. The New Hampshire Department of Labor/Safety and Training Division administers safety and health rules for public sector workplaces.
Public Sector-Lockout of Stored Energy
NH Regulations-Labor 1403.32
All stored energy hazards must be released, locked out, or otherwise rendered nonhazardous before commencement of any work that could subject the employee to potential injury, including:
- Hydraulic pressure
- Pneumatic pressure
- Steam pressure
Padlocks must be available to employees for locking out equipment when required.
Only the individual who is working on the equipment may remove the lockout device.
