Lockout/Tagout Training

$80/Student; members: $70/student

Lockout/Tagout training will provide the knowledge and insight necessary to prevent accidents before they occur. This lockout/tagout training is used to prevent energy from being released during the servicing of equipment, and is accomplished by placing locks and tags on energy isolation devices prior to starting work.

Learn how to protect from unplanned and uncontrolled hazardous energy, machine movements and how to adopt and implement practices and procedures to shut down equipment while maintenance and servicing activities are being performed. Our Lockout/Tagout course can be taught on-site at your location and includes hands-on training.

The class will cover:

  • Who is responsible for locking and tagging out equipment

  • The proper way to lock and tag out equipment

  • How to place the equipment back in service

What is the OSHA standard for control of hazardous energy sources?

The OSHA standard for The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout), Title 29 CFR Part 1910.147, addresses the practices and procedures necessary to disable machinery or equipment, thereby preventing the release of hazardous energy while employees perform servicing and maintenance activities. The standard outlines measures for controlling hazardous energies - electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal and other energy sources.

In addition, 29 CFR 1910.333 sets forth requirements to protect employees working on electrical circuits and equipment. This section requires workers to use safe work practices, including lockout and tagging procedures. These provisions apply when employees are exposed to electrical hazards while working on, near or with conductors or systems that use electrical energy.

What do employees need to know?

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.
