Canada Lockout Tagout
Online Training Certification Course
OHS Safety Standards
From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.
Workers performing maintenance on machinery risk exposure to electrical injuries. This risk is present even if the machine is turned off due to unexpected startup or a release of stored energy. Lockout/tagout (LOTO) procedures ensure machines are properly shut off and isolated from energy sources.
This lockout tagout training covers the responsibilities of manufacturers, employers, supervisors, and employees regarding hazardous energy control. LOTO training topics include specific safety protocols, applicable regulations, LOTO system steps, hazard analysis, and best practices to prevent workplace hazards.
This course is for:
Anyone who services or maintains equipment, as well as equipment operators and any other affected employees who work in the area where lockout tagout is being performed, must receive LOTO training. This also applies to temporary personnel and outside service and contractor personnel. This online training course meets the requirements set forth by OHS for lockout/tagout.

Case Study: An 18-year-old construction worker died after becoming entangled with a mortar mixer he was cleaning. The victim was slowly pulled into the machinery's gear system while a nearby painter ran to help. The painter could not figure out how stop the machine, so he yelled for additional help. Another worker ran over and shut down the machine. EMS responded within minutes, but the victim did not survive his injuries.
Key Takeaway: Going against the company's hazardous energy control program, the victim failed to lockout his machine against accidental start-up while cleaning it. The first responder, an affected employee, should have been trained on how to shut down the mixer in an emergency. Following company procedure and training is essential to prevent an accident from becoming a tragedy.
There are 14 jurisdictions in Canada - 1 federal, 10 provincial, and 3 territorial. Each jurisdiction has its own health and safety legislation. The Canada Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Regulations are the federal legislation enabled by the Canada Labour Code. Hazardous energy controls (including lockout/tagout) are covered in Part 8 under Electrical Safety. Canadian standard Z460-13, Control of Hazardous Energy - Lockout and Other Methods, also applies.
OHS has also created the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (OHS Act), which is a document that outlines workers' rights and responsibilities, including the right to stop work that is deemed hazardous or unsafe. OHS also lists the penalties and enforcement techniques to be used if these guidelines are not followed.
To supplement the overarching regulations created by OHS, individual provinces and territories often set their own regulations (in accordance with federal bodies) specific to their needs. Before implementing a hazardous control program with lockout/tagout, ensure that you are familiar with the regulations specific to your province or territory.

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazardous energy. According to OHS Part 8 and CSA Z460-14, employees working with and around electrical machines or equipment must receive initial and refresher safety training.
To ensure compliance with OHS safety training standards, lock out tag out training must be conducted at least once every three years. This online certification meets these training requirements.
