ABOUT THIS COURSE
According to OSHA, nearly 3,000 American workers were cited last year for not taking the proper safety measures required in order to protect themselves and their colleagues from exposure to hazardous energy. In 2015, 66 workers died from exposure to electricity alone. In this course you will become familiar with Lockout Tagout, OSHA’s set of practices that safeguards workers from both the unexpected energization of equipment or the release of hazardous energy during service and maintenance of equipment. Learn the energy control procedures that could save your life.
