Lockout/tagout can be defined as the placement of a lock or tag on an energy isolating device, in accordance with an established procedure, ensuring that the energy isolating device and the equipment being controlled cannot be re-energized until the locking device is removed. While an authorized person usually performs the lockout, an "affected employee" is an employee that is affected by the lockout. This course will focus on the general awareness needed for these "affected employees."

  • Define lockout/tagout
  • Describe primary and secondary energy sources
  • Differentiate between an "authorized" and "affected" employee
  • Describe the lockout and tagout process

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Industrial equipment and machinery is typically large and complex. When this equipment is shutdown to be serviced, maintained, or repaired there are typically multiple people from different trades involved. It is imperative to everyone involved that the equipment be stopped and remain still while the work is being performed. Lockout/Tagout refers to specific practices and procedures to safeguard all workers from the unexpected startup of machinery and equipment or the release of hazardous energy during service or maintenance activities. This module will define the need for these procedures and the general form they take. The details of implementation may vary from site to site but there are general guidelines which must be followed.
