Energy--it's a part of our lives every day. Being around energy is an every day part of our lives, and an important part of our workplace operations. High pressure steam, electricity, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, even the force of gravity are common forms of energy used to power our machines and processes. While energy is obviously useful, it can also be dangerous. Understanding how to properly control hazardous energy is one of the keys to workplace safety. This program reviews the procedures used to control this energy, commonly known as lockout/tagout. Topics include types of energy sources, the energy control plan, situations requiring lockout/tagout, lockout/tagout devices, energy control procedures and special lockout situations.
