Serious accidents occur when someone thought a machine or the power to it was safely off. "Lock-out tag-out" is a way to protect yourself and others by ensuring that machines remain completely and safely off. This training is designed to help you understand what lockout/tagout is and how to put into place effective procedures to protect your company and employees. The lock-out tag-out standard requires that hazardous energy sources be "isolated and rendered inoperative" before maintenance or servicing work can begin. OSHA requires three basic elements in a lock-out tag-out program.  Training, written procedures, and inspections. Training is required for two types of people; "authorized employees" and "affected employees." This training covers all aspects of “authorized” and “affected” worker’s roles in Lock Out.

The topics covered in this training are:

· Scope and Application

· Purpose

· Definitions

· Energy Control Systems, Documentation, Required Content

· Periodic Inspections

· Employee Training and Communication

· Employee Retraining

· New or Modified Equipment

· Materials and Hardware

· Application of Lock Out

· Release from Lock Out

· Testing of Machines
