Every year, hundreds of people are injured or killed when the equipment they are working on unexpectedly turns on, or the residual energy stored in the equipment is released. To prevent injuries related to these situations, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has implemented federal regulations that specifically outline the procedures employees should follow when working with energy sources. These procedures are called lockout/tagout and must be followed by all employees. This course describes the lockout/tagout standard for employees who may be affected by its application. It is not intended for staff who may be applying lock or tag devices. Unless otherwise noted, the information contained in this course was sourced from Title 29 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 1910.147 (2016).
