Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout)

This course presents OSHA's general requirements for controlling hazardous energy during service or maintenance of machines or equipment as detailed in 29 CFR 1910.147, Control of Hazardous Energy. It is not intended to replace or to supplement OSHA standards regarding the control of hazardous energy.

After completing this course, you should also review the OSHA standards on the control of hazardous energy to gain a complete understanding of the requirements regarding the control of hazardous energy. These standards, as well as other relevant resources, are identified throughout this course.

Why do I need to be concerned about lockout/tagout?

It's important that you be familiar with OSHA's Lockout/Tagout standards to help save lives and avoid OSHA citations. Take a look at OSHA's top 10 most cited violations for 2017 and you will see that Lockout/Tagout is always listed.

Craft workers, electricians, machine operators, and laborers are among the 3 million workers who service equipment routinely and face the greatest risk of injury. Workers injured on the job from exposure to hazardous energy lose an average of 24 workdays for recuperation.

Lockout/Tagout will most likely be required where you work because, after all, just about every workplace includes hazardous energy sources that could injure or kill workers.
