Moxie Media’s Lockout/Tagout Training Course
This lockout/tagout training will help you understand the principles of energy control and the necessary lockout/tagout procedures. Because lockout/tagout procedures, commonly referred to as LOTO, disable machinery or equipment during servicing and maintenance they prevent the release of hazardous energy during maintenance or servicing.
An unexpected release of hazardous energy can have serious or even fatal consequences. In fact, these injuries may include electrocution, burns, crushing, cutting, lacerating, amputating, and fracturing body parts.
That’s why lockout/tagout is the most important procedure when working on any equipment that is powered by a hazardous energy source. And by implementing a lockout/tagout energy control program, you can help prevent accidents and injuries both to yourself and other workers.
Course Topics Include:
- An Introduction to Lockout/Tagout
- Types of Energy and Energy Control
- Lockout/Tagout Procedures
- Restoring Equipment to Service
