English term or phrase: "lock-out / tag-out" procedure
WARNING
SHOCK HAZARD: Always turn off the power and unplug the cord before changing consumable parts. Do not rely on the cap-on sensor switch to remove power. It is provided strictly for safety backup. In the U.S., use a "lock-out / tag-out" procedure until the service or maintenance work is complete. In other countries, follow appropriate national or local safety procedures.

Spanish translation:procedimiento de bloqueo/señalización
Explanation:
lock-out=bloqueo
tag-out=señalización

I used several times this term on a safety measures booklet for a factory. I consulted with three more translators and agreed to use this term. I guess it´s indicating how to keep the machine from being operated (block-out) and how to tell others they can´t use it (tag-out)
Hope it helps!

... el procedimiento de desenrgizado/señalización


Explanation:
"Locking out" means that the appliance or machine must be completely without power or energy of any sort before servicing it. It's not just disconnecting the machine from a power outlet. It means removing all sorts of energy (potential energy, for example) from the machine.

Hope it helps.
