Lockout Tagout Training - Our 6-hour live online instructor-led electrical safety course is based on OSHA Reg. 29 CFR 1910.147 and CSA Z460 standards for energy control procedures, how and when to use them - and guidelines on safe restart.
Proper lockout tagout Lockout Tagout practices and procedures safeguard workers from hazardous energy releases is governed in the United States by the OSHA standard for The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout Tagout) (29 CFR 1910.147) for general industry outlines measures for controlling different types of hazardous energy. The OSHA LOTO standard establishes the employer's responsibility to protect workers from hazardous energy. Employers are also required to train each worker to ensure that they know, understand, and are able to follow the applicable provisions of the hazardous energy control procedures.

Lockout is defined by OSHA and CSA as "Control of Hazardous Energy - Lockout and Other Methods" as the "placement of a lockout device on an energy-isolating device in accordance with an established procedure." A lockout device is "a mechanical means of locking that uses an individually keyed lock to secure an energy-isolating device in a position that prevents energization of a machine, equipment, or a process."
OSHA 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.
Affected employees must be instructed on the:
Other employees must be instructed about:
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.
Our Lockout Tagout course guides you through appropriate lockout - energy control procedures, how and when to use them - and guidelines on safe restart.
Lockout Tagout For Authorized Employees
Employees who perform the following types of work must be trained:
If an employee's duties include performing work covered by this program, they must be trained as an authorized employee. The training for authorized employees involves both classroom and on-the-job instruction.
Training must be performed before the employee is assigned duties involving work that will require lockout/tagout (LOTO). An employee undergoing on-the-job instruction who has demonstrated the ability to perform duties safely at his or her level of training, and who is under the direct supervision of an authorized person, is considered to be an authorized person for the purpose of those duties.
Retraining will be performed whenever inspections conducted by the employee’s supervisor indicate that an employee has not retained the necessary knowledge or skills to effectively use established lockout/tagout procedures. Retraining will also be performed whenever there is a change in job assignments, when new machines, equipment or processes are introduced that present a new hazard, or when the energy control procedures change. When an employee is to work on new or unfamiliar systems or equipment, the employee’s supervisor must provide additional instruction on the hazards involved and the energy control procedures that are to be followed.
Training on Lockout Tagout Devices
If tagout devices are used, further instruction on tagout systems need to emphasize that:
