Do You Need to Take the Lockout/Tagout Training Course?

Lockout/Tagout Training is required for all authorized and affected employees whenever there is a change in job assignments, operations, or procedures involving energy control procedures, in compliance with 1910.147.

The course is designed to help employers develop and implement an energy control program or lockout/tagout (LOTO) for employees in addition to performing service and maintenance actions on machinery and equipment.

NET Lockout/Tagout Training is not intended to be totally inclusive of the OSHA standard or alter that standard but rather to give employers a better understanding of that standard and its procedures. Employers are encouraged to obtain a copy of the OSHA standard and develop their own site-specific policies.
