(2) If the equipment is operating, shut it down by the normal stopping procedure. (3) Isolate all energy sources. (4) Lockout energy isolating devices with an assigned individual lock(s). (5) Verify the de-energization of all energy sources. After ensuring that no personnel are exposed and as a check on having disconnected the energy sources, operate the push button or other normal operating controls to make certain the equipment will not operate.
