LOCKOUT / TAGOUT TRAINING
Lockout Tagout Training
OSHA requires that employees be trained on lockout policies and procedures. Training is done to ensure that the purpose and function of the energy control program are understood by employees and that the knowledge and skills required for the safe application, usage, and removal of the energy controls are acquired by employees.
Martin Technical Lockout Training Programs typically cover:
- Training to Corporate Lockout policy
- Overview of Lockout Standards
- Lockout Injuries
- Recognition of Hazardous Energy Sources
- Energy Control Procedures
- Limited Purpose of Tagout
- Lockout Locks and Devices
- Contractors and Vendors
- Shift and Personnel Changes
- Temporary Lockout Removal
- Periodic Inspections
In addition to training, your lockout expert will be able to consult with you and answer any questions that you have about your lockout program.
WHEN SHOULD LOCKOUT / TAGOUT TRAINING BE CONDUCTED?
Lockout Tagout training should be conducted on the following schedule
- When a new employee is introduced
- When a new piece of equipment is introduced
- When a new energy source is introduced, or lockout tagout procedures change
- When a supervisor or manager deems that a worker is not properly following or understanding the lockout tagout procedure.
Although annual lockout training is not required by OSHA, it is best done an annual basis during your periodic program review.
