Lock-out/tag-out address the proper practices employees must follow when disabling equipment or machinery in order to prevent the release of hazardous energy. Employees must have the knowledge and skills required for the safe application, usage, and removal of energy when performing maintenance or servicing on equipment. In this course, we will review the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations regarding locking out and tagging out energized equipment to prevent electrical and mechanical injuries.
The course reviews the process for Lock-Out/Tag-Out along with examples of incidents that have seriously injured or caused the death of an employee from becoming complacent when working on powered equipment.
