The Energy Control Plan
This program is a microlearning. A microlearning is typically 1-2 minutes in length and quickly conveys information about a specific topic or subset of a larger topic.
Lockout/tagout is a system of energy control procedures that must be used anytime machine guards are opened or removed, electrical doors or covers are opened or anytime a person is potentially exposed to injury from the unexpected start up or energization of equipment. During a lockout operation, all energy sources to a machine or piece of equipment are disconnected, blocked or opened, and then locked in the disconnected position and marked with a tag to indicate that the equipment must not be re-energized. In accordance with OSHA's Control of Hazardous Energy Standard, your organization has developed a written energy control plan that includes employee training. As part of such training, this program reviews the purpose and components of the written plan.
