Who Should Take the Course?
Employers should train ALL workers in the basic concepts of hazardous energy control, including energy isolation, locking and tagging of control devices, verifying de-energization, and clearing danger points before re-energizing equipment. Workers whose duties involve installation, maintenance, service, or repair work should be trained in the detailed control procedures required for their particular equipment.
This training should enable workers to identify tasks that might expose them to hazardous energy and the effective methods for its control.
Ultimately, the goal of this course is to educate participants as to what a lockout device is and when Lock-out and Tag-out should be used in the work place. The course examines basic workplace safety tenets and examines the specific stages and procedures of the lock-out and tag-out process.
