Cal/OSHA Lockout Tagout

Online Training Certification Course

Title 8 CCR, Section 3314

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This online certification course meets the requirements for lockout/tagout safety training in the state of California. It covers important OSHA safety training standards, including an overview of the regulations, risks, and safety measures associated with the release of hazardous energy and lockout/tagout.

For employees working with machines and equipment, an unexpected machine startup or the release of stored energy from a machine-whether electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, or thermal-can result in serious injury or death. Each year, workers who are setting up, unjamming, repairing, cleaning, servicing, and adjusting equipment are killed or maimed because of the sudden energizing of equipment. Lockout/tagout procedures are designed to prevent such accidents.

This course is for:
Craft workers, electricians, machine operators, and laborers are among the workers who routinely service equipment and face the greatest risk of injury; however, anyone who comes in contact with energized equipment needs to be adequately trained. This online lockout/tagout training meets California OSHA's requirements.

Case Study: In 2006, a 43-year-old man was working on a lighting circuit that had been damaged during building renovations. He was installing temporary wiring to replace the wiring that had been damaged. He had been instructed by his supervisor, a licensed electrician, to shut-off the power to the lighting circuit at the junction box, but this had not been done and no lockout/tagout procedure had been followed. The man was electrocuted when a tool in his hand came into contact with an energized element of the circuit.

In the investigation following the man's death, it was determined that his employer had properly observed the California standards for employee safety training. This training had included lockout/tagout procedures. It was also found that the worker's circuit tester, used to verify before working that a circuit is de-energized, was in his locker.

Key Takeaways: In this incident, the employee appears to have disregarded both his training and smart work practices, and he lost his life because of this. The man's supervisor also bears responsibility, however, for his assumption that his instructions had been carried out. Working with electricity requires both employers and employees to be active participants in safety.
