CSA Z460-13: A Standard for Controlling Hazardous Energy

CSA Z460-13 is a Canadian standard that specifies requirements and performance objectives for procedures, techniques, designs, and methods to protect workers from injury due to inadvertent release of hazardous energy. Hazardous energy can be electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, or other forms of energy that can cause harm to people, property, or the environment. The standard covers various methods of controlling hazardous energy, such as lockout, tagout, blocking, bleeding, and dissipating. The standard also provides guidance on risk assessment, training, auditing, and documentation.

The standard was published by CSA Group in 2013 and reaffirmed in 2018. It is based on in part on ANSI/ASSE Z244.1-2003 Control of Hazardous Energy - Lockout/Tagout and Alternative Methods as well as ISO 12100:2010, Safety machinery - General principles for design - Risk assessment and risk reduction. The standard works along with other CSA standards such as Z462 Workplace Electrical Safety, Z463 Maintenance of Electrical Systems, and the 2012 Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, to build an effective workplace electrical safety plan.

The standard applies to all industries and sectors where workers may be exposed to hazardous energy during installation, operation, maintenance, repair, modification, or decommissioning of machines, equipment, or processes. The standard also includes mobile mechanical equipment and freeze-plug applications. The standard does not apply to situations where hazardous energy is intentionally released for testing or other purposes.

The standard aims to provide flexibility in hazardous energy control methodology decisions as part of an occupational health and safety management system, aligning with principles contained in CSA Z1000. The standard also aims to help businesses demonstrate due diligence towards prevention of electrical injuries and comply with relevant regulations and legislation.

The standard can be purchased from CSA Group website[^1^] [^2^] or accessed through subscription services such as CSA Advantage TM or CSA OnDemand TM[^1^] [^2^]. The standard is available in PDF format and has 130 pages[^1^] or 131 pages[^2^]. The standard has been withdrawn by CSA Group and is no longer available for sale[^1^] [^2^].The benefits of using CSA Z460-13 are manifold. Some of the benefits are:

It helps to prevent injuries, fatalities, and property damage due to accidental or intentional release of hazardous energy.

It helps to comply with legal and regulatory obligations related to occupational health and safety and hazardous energy control.

It helps to improve worker awareness, competence, and confidence in performing tasks that involve hazardous energy.

It helps to reduce downtime, maintenance costs, and liability risks associated with hazardous energy incidents.

It helps to enhance the reputation and credibility of the organization as a responsible and safety-conscious employer.

To use the standard effectively, the organization should establish a hazardous energy control program that includes the following elements:

A policy statement that defines the scope, objectives, responsibilities, and authority for hazardous energy control.

A procedure for identifying and assessing the hazards and risks associated with hazardous energy sources and tasks.

A procedure for selecting and applying the appropriate methods of hazardous energy control, such as lockout, tagout, blocking, bleeding, and dissipating.

A procedure for developing, documenting, and communicating the specific steps for hazardous energy control for each task.

A procedure for verifying the effectiveness of hazardous energy control before starting work on or near machines, equipment, or processes.

A procedure for restoring machines, equipment, or processes to normal operation after completing work.

A procedure for monitoring, auditing, and reviewing the performance of the haz
