Certified Lockout Tagout Training - Electrical Safety Instruction By Qualified Experts

CSA Z460 Control of Hazardous Energy standard covers the servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment in which the "unexpected" energization or start up of the machines or equipment or release of stored energy could cause injury to employees. Our 6-Hour Live Online Lockout Tagout certificate training course addresses lockout tagout practices and procedures that are necessary to disable machinery or equipment and to prevent the release of potentially hazardous energy while maintenance and servicing activities are being performed.

Lockout Tagout Training

CSA Z460 Control of Hazardous Energy – Lockout and other Methods is a standard that establishes the requirements for controlling potentially hazardous energy associated with machines or equipment when performing installation, maintenance, or repair operations.

When left uncontrolled, these various forms of energy can cause serious injury or fatality. The objectives of this standard are to comply with applicable regulations, establish methods to achieve a zero-energy state, and prevent inadvertent operation or energization of equipment or processes to protect workers.

This course covers the following important subjects:

  • General requirements for the control of hazardous energy
  • Employee protection
  • Energy control procedures
  • Lockout tagout procedures and devices
  • Training requirements for lockout tagout procedures

Upon completion of this course, students will:

  • Know how to prevent injuries by controlling hazardous energy as it applies to the lockout/tagout standard
  • Be able to identify the requirements and procedures for locking and tagging out machines and equipment
  • Understand the employer's training responsibility, as well as the training requirements for authorized and affected employees

Lockout is one of the best ways to control hazardous energy. Lockout involves the isolation of energy from the system, whether it be a machine, electrical equipment or process, which physically locks the system and places it into safe mode. Such energy includes isolating devices that can be a manually operated disconnect switch, a circuit breaker, a line valve, or a block. Often, these energy-isolating devices will have loops or tabs which can lock a stationary item in a safe, de-energized position. The lockout device can be any device that has the ability to secure the energy-isolating device in a safe position.
