Lockout Tagout Training

Lockout Tagout Training

Lockout Tagout Training - Our 6-hour live online instructor-led course guides you through appropriate lockout - energy control procedures, how and when to use them - and guidelines on safe restart.

You can access the live online training through our web-based platform from your own computer. You can see and hear the instructor and see his screen live.

You can interact and ask questions. The cost of the training also includes 7 days of email mentoring with the instructor.

Each and every day, North American electrical workers are exposed to electrical hazardous energy from industrial machinery, equipment and processes. Companies have an obligation to comply with applicable regulatory lockout tagout standards, establish methods for achieving a zero energy state and prevent the inadvertent (accidental or negligent) startup of machinery, equipment or processes in order to protect electrical workers.

Lockout tagout standards provides for decision-making flexibility regarding hazardous energy control. "Other Methods", when used, are based upon risk assessment and application of the classic hazard control hierarchy.
Every workplace requires constant maintenance. Installation, repair, and servicing of equipment and machines, although routine, always holds an element of danger for personnel performing the tasks.

Injury can occur as a result of the inadvertent startup of machines, equipment or processes, contact with live circuits or an unexpected release of stored energy.

Avoid these hazards. Effective lockout procedures isolate energy and control machinery and equipment - helping to protect the operators, maintenance personnel and the machines themselves.

Training on Lockout Tagout Devices
If tagout devices are used, further training on tagout systems need to emphasize that:

  • Tags are warning devices only and do not provide a physical restraint that lockout devices provide
  • Tags must not be removed without the authorized employee’s approval and should never be bypassed, ignored, or otherwise defeated
  • Tags must be legible and understandable by all employees
  • Tags must be able to withstand environmental conditions in the workplace
  • Tags may give employees a false sense of security
  • Tags must be securely attached to prevent inadvertent or accidental detachment

Lockout/Tagout Training General requirements
Training must ensure that the purpose and function of your energy control plan are understood and that employees gain the needed knowledge and skills to safely apply, use, and remove hazardous energy controls. Minimum training must include:

  • Authorized employees must be able to recognize:
  • hazardous energy sources
  • types and magnitudes of energy in the workplace
  • methods and means necessary to isolate and control the energy

Affected employees must be instructed on the:

  • purpose and use of your energy control procedures

Other employees must be instructed about:

  • the energy control procedure in general
  • prohibitions relating to attempts to restart/reenergize equipment

Lockout Tagout Training - Control of Hazardous Electrical Energy - Lockout and Other Methods was developed due to a lack of understanding and measurable consistency in the field regarding Lockout principles and also by the rapidly changing technology and automation related to complex industrial machinery. This standard establishes requirements and performance objectives for procedures, techniques, designs and methods for the effective control of Hazardous Energy.
