OSHA Lockout/Tagout (Control of Hazardous Energy) Training (2 hour)
When workers service equipment and machinery, lockout and tagout procedures ensure they remain safe. Lockout/tagout prevents unexpected startup or energization and eliminates the risk of releasing hazardous energy. These processes affect multiple industries, with an estimated three million people across the country working in jobs that put them at risk. Our lockout/tagout control of hazardous energy training course gives you the information you need to perform lockout/tagout safely, and meet federal compliance standards.
Who Needs Lockout/Tagout Certification?
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) credits proper lockout/tagout procedures with preventing 120 deaths and approximately 50,000 workplace injuries each year. According to OSHA Standard 29 CFR, Part 1910.147, employees who service or work around any electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic, mechanical or other energy systems must get certified for lockout/tagout. If they are found to be in violation, someone gets hurt or there is a workplace fatality, there will be penalties that could include criminal charges.
