Lockout / Target
Length 30 minutes of classroom instruction plus 20 minutes of hands-on training for employees performing lockout/tagout procedures.
Materials PowerPoint presentation, discussion, and OSHA training video
Lockout/tagout employee safety courses teach employees how to prevent the unexpected startup or energization of hazardous equipment, especially when employees are servicing or maintaining the equipment. Hazardous energy sources include chemical, electrical, mechanical, pneumatic, thermal, and other sources, and their unexpected release can cause serious and even fatal injuries. Even though the coursework applies mostly to employees involved in the isolation of energy, all employees should learn appropriate lockout/tagout procedures so that they can tend to equipment that hasn’t been properly attended.Back to blog list
