    My understanding.

    All OSHA requires is lockout the CB, test the on/off switch to make sure it does not start and go about changing the blade.

    You can do more if you want, but OSHA does not require it.

    The guy doing the blade change would need to be trained on how to perform the lockout and the blade change. Then, and only then, could he be authorized to do so.

    The legally required disconnect within sight is appliance cord & plug.

    Pull out cord & plug before changing blades. No LOTO needed if plug is withn sight.
