In OHS Onilne, why are residual energy sources important to check for when isolating machinery or equipment to be worked on?

That's an excellent question! It is important to remember that in order to be effective, machinery uses force to achieve some type of work outcome. Machinery and equipment are specifically designed to work in very specific manners to accomplish the type of work they perform. In doing so, many machinery and equipment types use hydraulics, pneumatic, gravity, etc to help achieve the work View Full Answer
