On May 17, 2019, OSHA released a memo requesting information on a possible update to the Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout (LOTO)) standard. According to the release,

“OSHA is requesting information about how employers have been using control circuit devices, including information about the types of circuitry and safety procedures being used; limitations of their use, to determine under what other conditions control circuit-type devices could be used safely; new risks of worker exposure to hazardous energy as a result of increased interaction with robots; and whether the agency should consider changes to the LOTO standard that would address these new risks.”
