This training program will introduce students to not only the various types of hazardous energy within the workplace but also the proper lockout procedures of such.  The purpose of lockout is to ensure that machine hazards that are present during repairs and maintenance are minimized by the creation of a “Zero Energy” state. Lockout is critical in the workplace as the failure to do so can result in injury and/or death.

This module is intended to teach students about the roles and responsibilities of supervisors, employees and management. It introduces hazardous energy, the general lockout guidelines/procedures associated with them as well as the various types of lockout devices.

It is important to note that this program is an AWARENESS training program and you will require further site-specific training related to lockout procedures in accordance with your organizations equipment and identified hazards. These programs may be combined into our full day training program
