OSHA 29 CFR 1910.147 - The Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout) Training Certification
- OSHA states that employees need to be trained to ensure that they know, understand, and follow the applicable provisions of the hazardous energy control procedures.
- The training must cover at least three areas: aspects of the employer's energy control program; elements of the energy control procedure relevant to the employee's duties or assignment; and the various requirements of the OSHA standards related to lockout/tagout.
Electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, pneumatic, and other forms of energy run nearly everything in our workplace today. If uncontrolled, each of these pose a significant hazard. Death and serious injury can result from an unexpected startup, or the release of hazardous energy. Lockout/tagout procedures are written steps used for affixing lockout or tagout devices to energy isolating devices to bring a machine to a zero-energy state. By using a lockout/tagout procedure, employees can help protect themselves from unexpected re-energization or release of stored energy. OSHA lockout/tagout safety training and procedures have been developed to prevent this from happening and to safeguard employees.
