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.
