Lockout Tagout (E-learning)

Program Description

The term "lockout/tagout" refers to specific practices and procedures to safeguard workers from the unexpected energizing or start up of machinery and equipment, or the release of hazardous energy during service or maintenance activites. Lockout/Tagout explains the importance of lockout/tagout in protecting the health and safety of workers.

Ultimately, the goal of this course is to educate participants as to what a lockout device is and when Lockout/Tagout should be used in the work place. The course examines basic workplace safety tenets and examines the specific stages and procedures of the lockout/tagout process.

This course is presented in 4 modules:

  • Introduction
  • Injury Prevention
  • Equipment Shutdown and Isolation
  • The Procedure of Lockout/Tagout
 

Evaluation Process

At the end of each module, there is a test. Participants must successfully complete the test before continuing to the next module. Participants that do not achieve 100% can review the module content and try as many times as necessary to advance and complete the course. Test questions are randomly selected from a test bank, making each test unique.

Upon successfully completing all modules, there is a printable certificate for your records.

 

Course Duration

This online course is self-paced. Participants may leave the course at any time and can resume where they left off. The duration will depend on the individual participant and their prior knowledge of the subject matter. On average, the course will take between 1.5 - 3 hours to complete.

 

Who Should Take the Course?

Employers should train ALL workers in the basic concepts of hazardous energy control, including energy isolation, locking and tagging of control devices, verifying de-energization, and clearing danger points before re-energizing equipment. Workers whose duties involve installation, maintenance, service, or repair work should be trained in the detailed control procedures required for their particular equipment. This training should enable workers to identify tasks that might expose them to hazardous energy and the effective methods for its control.
