Concise Length 10 min
Nearly 200 employees are killed and thousands of others injured each year when they are exposed to the sudden, unexpected release of hazardous energy. To protect workers from such incidents, a set of procedures known as lockout/tagout is used to disconnect and isolate all of the hazardous energy sources to a machine, piece of equipment or other device. This program stresses the importance of controlling hazardous energy in all required situations while providing viewers with a basic understanding of the key elements in the lockout/tagout process. Also featured are six workplace injury reenactments that illustrate the devastating consequences of improper lockout/tagout operations. Topics include situations that require lockout/tagout, authorized, affected and other employees, proper use of locks and tags, steps involved in performing a lockout procedure, verifying a zero energy state, returning equipment to service and group lockout procedures.
