LOTO – Lockout Tagout

29 CFR 1910.147 OSHA Lockout Tagout Training & Certification

Today, workplaces are primarily run off of electrical, hydraulic, mechanical and pneumatic energy systems. If uncontrolled, each of these energy sources pose significant hazards including death and serious injury created from the unexpected startup or release of hazardous energy.

OSHA Lockout Tagout procedures were developed to safeguard employees from serious injury or death.

According to OSHA Lockout Tagout standards, authorized employees who service or maintain equipment including equipment operators and any other employees who work in the area where lockout tagout is being performed are required to take this training.
