Lockout Tagout

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910.147

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

This LOTO training course details the requirements for a lockout/tagout program, applicable regulations, and procedural elements of a LOTO plan. It emphasizes safety practices related to the control of energy during servicing and/or maintenance of machines and equipment.

Most machines and equipment use or create energy that can harm employees. Some energy sources are obvious, such as electricity or heat in a furnace. Others are less obvious, such as air pressure in a system or a tightly wound spring. To keep workers safe, OSHA requires lockout tagout training. An effective lockout/tagout (LOTO) program identifies all hazardous energy sources at a worksite that must be isolated or controlled when performing service and maintenance on energized machinery or equipment.

This course is for:
This lock out tag out training is designed for anyone who services or maintains equipment, equipment operators, and any other affected employees who work in the area where lockout/tagout is being conducted. This safety training may help prevent serious injury in the workplace and save lives.

This online certification course meets the requirements set forth by OSHA for lockout/tagout compliance, 29 CFR 1910.147(c)(7).

Case Study: In May 2004, a mechanical engineering technician in Richmond, California, was assigned to install new access doors on an automatic storage and refrigeration unit. Before he worked on the unit, he neglected to lockout/tagout the unit. As he was working, a laboratory support specialist operated the equipment without the knowledge that the technician was installing rear access doors. The technician lost consciousness after being crushed between the automatic storage and refrigeration systems. He sustained a punctured blood vessel in the eye and a crushed chest. He was treated on the scene by emergency medical personnel and was hospitalized for two days.

In December 2008, a construction worker in San Jose, California, accidentally dropped an empty paper sack into a grout mixer. He failed to de-energize the machine to retrieve the sack. Two of his fingers were severed at the tips by the rotating blades and he was hospitalized.

Key Takeaway: OSHA estimates that compliance with the lockout/tagout (LOTO) standard prevents an estimated 120 fatalities and 50,000 injuries each year. Do your part! Always follow employer-designated LOTO procedures for the control of hazardous energy.

Governing Regulations

The Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 created the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA, an agency of the U.S. Department of Labor, is charged with the enforcement of safety and health conditions of workers through the use of regulations published in the Code of Federal Regulations. OSHA regulations are published in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations. Part 1910 covers general industry regulations. This online training course references OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147, the control of hazardous energy (lockout/tagout), in addition to 29 CFR 1910.333, selection and use of work practices (electrical).

Employers are responsible for training new personnel before assigning them to tasks that may expose them to hazards such as energized machines or equipment.

To ensure compliance with controlling worker exposure to hazardous energy, safety training must be conducted whenever there is a change in job assignments, machines, equipment, or processes that present a new hazard. Additional retraining is required when there is a change in energy control procedures, as well as whenever the employer has reason to believe that there are deviations from or inadequacies in the employee's knowledge or use of the energy control procedures. This LOTO training course meets these training requirements.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.

Matt M Verified

I personally feel the use of the phrase Energy Isolating does not include all possible hazards that LOTO can protect against. LOTO can protect employees from exposure to hazardous chemicals and biological hazards. However, the choice of words is up to those who right the CFRs.
