Lockout/Tagout Training

Our Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) Training is essential for ensuring the safety of employees who work with or near hazardous energy sources. This training program educates workers on the procedures required to isolate and control energy sources during maintenance and servicing of equipment.

By adhering to these procedures, employees can prevent unexpected energy release, which can lead to serious injuries or fatalities.

What We Offer

Understanding Hazardous Energy Sources

The training begins with a comprehensive overview of different types of hazardous energy, including electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, and thermal energy. Employees learn to identify these energy sources and understand the risks associated with each. This foundational knowledge is crucial for recognizing potential hazards in their work environment.

Detailed Lockout/Tagout Procedures

Our Lockout/Tagout Training covers the step-by-step procedures for safely isolating energy sources. This includes preparing for shutdown, notifying affected employees, isolating the energy, applying lockout/tagout devices, releasing stored energy, and verifying the isolation. These procedures are explained in detail to ensure that employees can confidently perform each step correctly and consistently.

Use of Lockout/Tagout Devices

Participants are trained on the proper selection and use of lockout/tagout devices. This includes understanding the different types of locks and tags, their application, and how to ensure they are effectively securing energy isolation points. The training emphasizes the importance of using standardized, durable, and identifiable devices to maintain safety and compliance with OSHA regulations.

Compliance and Periodic Inspection

The training highlights the importance of compliance with OSHA’s Lockout/Tagout standard (29 CFR 1910.147). Employees learn about the employer’s responsibilities, including developing a written LOTO program, conducting regular inspections, and maintaining records. Additionally, the training covers the procedures for periodic inspection of energy control practices to ensure ongoing safety and compliance.


What is Lockout/Tagout and why is it important

Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) refers to specific practices and procedures to safeguard employees from the release of hazardous energy during maintenance activities. It is crucial for preventing accidents and ensuring that machinery and equipment are properly shut off and unable to restart before the completion of maintenance or servicing.

Who should receive Lockout/Tagout Training?

All employees who work with or near machinery and equipment that may have hazardous energy sources should receive LOTO training. This includes maintenance personnel, machine operators, and any other workers who might be exposed to hazardous energy.

How often should Lockout/Tagout procedures be reviewed?

OSHA requires that LOTO procedures be reviewed at least annually. These periodic inspections ensure that the procedures are being followed correctly and that the lockout/tagout devices are effective in isolating hazardous energy.
