This online course covers OSHA’s general requirements for controlling hazardous energy during service or maintenance of machines or equipment. It is designed to emphasize hazard identification, avoidance and control — not standards, in an effort to train workers on safety issues.
No attempt has been made to treat the topic exhaustively and it is not to be taken as a substitute for any of the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 or for any standards issued by the US Department of Labor.
After taking this course, employers and other interested parties are urged to review the OSHA standards on the control of hazardous energy to gain a complete understanding of the requirements regarding the control of hazardous energy. These standards, as well as other relevant resources, are identified throughout this course.
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Interpret OSHA’s standard on the control of hazardous energy found in Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1910
- Understand how and when to apply the standard
- Explain OSHA’s minimum performance requirements
- Develop, document and use procedures to control hazardous energy
- Understand the importance of an employee training program for lockout/tagout procedures
- Discuss commonly used terminology and how to obtain OSHA assistance
