What has been proposed is to install the ground clusters with a key attached and the lock that key fits installed on the LOTO point.  This is in addition to the LOTO for the job.  The purpose is to remove the grounds before a person can switch the power on.  The question has come up is does this violate any part of the NFPA LOTO requirements because the key will be available to anyone who has access to the ground cluster. 

Installing and removing grounds are already part of the written procedure and a sign could also be hung by the switch to remove the grounds.  Thanks
