OSHA Lockout Tagout (LOTO) Training course is designed for craft workers, machine operators, electricians, laborers, and other workers who perform servicing and/or maintenance operations on equipment or machinery that may expose them to various sources of hazardous energy. Sources of hazardous energy include electrical, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, chemical, thermal, and other energy sources.Energy is the power for doing work. Our modern lives depend on the use of energy and its conversion from one form to another. Energy becomes hazardous when it builds to a dangerous level or is suddenly released in great quantities. If hazardous energy is not properly controlled before servicing or maintenance work begins, employees may be seriously injured or killed. Injuries from unexpectedly re-energized equipment could include burns, electrocution, crushing, cuts, lacerations, amputations, and fractures.
The OSHA Standard for the Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout), Title 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 1910.147, sets forth the work practices and controls employers must implement to prevent accidents associated with hazardous energy.
The standard requires employers to establish an energy control program and utilize procedures for affixing appropriate lockout devices or tagout devices to energy isolating devices, and to otherwise disable machines or equipment to prevent unexpected energization, start up, or release of stored energy during servicing and maintenance operations. The standard also sets forth requirements for employee training and periodic inspections of energy control procedures to ensure their effectiveness in keeping employees safe.

This OSHA Lockout Tagout (LOTO) Training course is suitable for employees engaged in servicing and maintenance of equipment and machinery. Craft workers, machine operators, electricians, and laborers are some examples of workers who service equipment and machinery and therefore face the greatest risk of injury. To ensure the health and well-being of employees, hazardous energy must be controlled by preventing its transmission from the source to the equipment it powers up.
According to OSHA Standards, there are several instances when employees must be retrained in lockout/tagout procedures. These are:
- When there is a change in an employee’s job assignment.
- If there are any changes to machines or equipment used in the workplace.
- Changes to work procedures that may produce new energy-related hazard(s).
- When an employer changes their energy control program or energy control procedures.
- When an inspection reveals any deviation from the specified energy control procedures.
- In instances when an employee does not follow defined processes or demonstrates a lack of knowledge or skill in lockout/tagout procedures.
