The course addresses Lockout/Tagout (LOTO) procedures, energy isolation, and more to help employees and employers stay safe on the job.
This introductory online course explains OSHA standards and best practices for employee safety in environments where hazardous energy may be present. Course topics include:
A review of the six basic groups of hazardous energy
OSHA standards for isolation and control of hazardous energy
