Section 24A of the Factories Act is about the establishment and implementation of lock-out procedures. It is reproduced below:

    - To prevent any part of the plant, machinery or equipment from being inadvertently activated or energized.

The occupier of a factory must establish and implement a set of lock-out procedures for each of the plant, machinery or equipment where inspection, cleaning, repair or maintenance work may have to be carried out and where accidental startup is possible.
