Lockout/Tagout Training Course (4 hr.).
OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 — The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout) Training Certiﬁcation.
This course covers the role and responsibility of the employer to develop and implement an energy control program, or lock-out/tag-out (LOTO) for the protection of workers while performing servicing and maintenance activities on machinery and equipment.
OSHA states that employees need to be trained to ensure that they know, understand, and follow the applicable provisions of the hazardous energy control procedures. The training must cover at least three areas: aspects of the employer’s energy control program; elements of the energy control procedure relevant to the employee’s duties or assignment; and the various requirements of the OSHA standards related to lockout/tagout. Electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, pneumatic, and other forms of energy run nearly everything in our workplace today. If uncontrolled, each of these pose a signiﬁcant hazard. Death and serious injury can result from an unexpected startup, or the release of hazardous energy. Lockout/tagout procedures are written steps used for afﬁxing lockout or tagout devices to energy isolating devices to bring a machine to a zero-energy state. By using a lockout/tagout procedure, employees can help protect themselves from unexpected re-energization or release of stored energy. OSHA lockout/tagout safety training and procedures have been developed to prevent this from happening and to safeguard employees.
This course satisfies the training requirements for OSHA 29 CFR § 1910.147 The control of hazardous energy or lockout tagout.
Course topics include:
• control of hazardous energy; • servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment in which the unexpected energization or startup of the machines or equipment, or release of stored energy could cause injury to employees; • affected and authorized employee duties; • energy isolating devices; • energy control program; • energy control procedures; • protective materials and hardware; • employee training requirements
