Don't count on luck, count on the lock. Protect yourself and your team from unintentional exposure to all types of hidden energy with this course that describes hazardous energy types and energy control procedures, including preparation, shutdown, isolation, lockout, stored energy check, verification, and release of lockout. Additional topics include lockout hardware and administration of an Energy Control Program (ECP). This course is intended for the "authorized employees" who typically perform lockout/tagout procedures.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Define lockout/tagout
  • Describe why hazardous energy is a problem
  • Differentiate between an "authorized" and "affected" employee
  • List in order and describe the six steps of an effective energy control program
  • Describe lockout hardware
  • Describe the training requirements for lockout tagout
  • Describe the role of a primary authorized employee during a group lockout
  • Describe the procedure for restarting affected equipment

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What is lockout/tagout?
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.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.

What are primary energy sources to be isolated during lockout/tagout?
Primary energy sources include electricity, hydraulics (fluids), and pneumatics (air or vacuum energy).

What are secondary (or stored) energy sources to be isolated during lockout/tagout?
Secondary energy sources include springs, capacitors, accumulators, counterbalance systems, gravity, and inertia.

What is an authorized person or employee?
An authorized person is the one who performs the lockout. This is someone who is familiar with the equipment in question and capable of locking it out properly.

What is an affected employee?
An"affected employee" is an employee that is affected by the lockout. This commonly includes machine operators who need to know that their machine should not be operated.

What are six steps to an effective energy control program?
Six steps to an effective energy control program include preparation, shut down, isolation, lockout/tagout, stored enegy check, and isolation verification.

What types of hardware are used to lockout machinery?
Locks and hasps are used to lockout machinery for energy control.

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

Hazardous energy can take many forms. Consider the simple task of removing a pump and motor unit from a process. Most people would realize that the electricity to the motor needs to be interrupted and locked out before removal, but there is another source of energy that presents a less obvious hazard, and that some people might not think of. The pump is connected to process piping which probably has pressure within it. Before the pump can be removed, workers must be protected by closing valves or inserting blanks to isolate the pump from up stream or down stream fluid pressure, and draining the associated piping.

Exceptional Quality

“I went to a safety conference a few years back and happened to see the Convergence booth showing their wares. Several years later I had a need to replace several VCR (outdated) tapes that we were using for training. I took a look at several other companies for their products and found that for the money Convergence had the best quality visuals and information. Exceptional stuff!”

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
