WeComply, Inc., a leader in online ethics and compliance training, has announced a new Lockout/Tagout Compliance training course. This course explains the essentials of the lockout/tagout standard and the safety practices used to control hazardous energy when machinery and equipment are shut down for maintenance and service.
The course begins with an overview of the lockout/tagout standard and an explanation of why lockout/tagout is important. The course covers hazardous energy, lockout/tagout safety, lockout/tagout devices and the limitations of tags. The course also provides a discussion of lockout/tagout procedures and guidelines for releasing equipment from lockout/tagout.
“OSHA requires employers to protect workers from hazardous energy through the use of lockout/tagout practices and procedures,” said Mike Pallatta, WeComply CEO. “In keeping with this requirement, all employees who work where energy-control procedures are used need to receive this training – not just the individuals responsible for the maintenance and service. This 20-minute course explains the essentials of the lockout/tagout standard and helps employers stay in compliance.”
