I bet it won't turn ON. Most worker drones don't care if it won't turn off. They just care that their machine won't run. It should have a lockoout and red tag but it may not be quite as dangerous as it first looks. Or, at least, that's what I hope!

The handle looks up to me, meaning on. The note says 'main' switch, not isolation or disconnect. I have had to deal with local switches that fail to change contact position. What I usually do is drill, tap, and bolt the handle in the 'stuck position'. I then put a big red tag on it that says: "DANGEROUS - GO AWAY"
Then I order the parts to fix it; or if they are on hand, I make sure the supervisor has them changed as soon as the equipment allows a shut down.
