Lockout Tagout (LOTO)
Hazardous energy is present in many industries across Canada. Lockout and Tagout (LOTO) is necessary to prevent accidents from occurring when this energy is released. Lockout and Tagout standards require that all hazardous energy sources be isolated and rendered inoperative, before any maintenance or servicing work can begin. This prevents devastating injuries and deaths that could occur, if the energy were to be unexpectedly energised.
This online course subject matter will cover four chapters on lockout/tagout procedures to safeguard workers: roles and responsibilities, hazardous forms of energy, developing LOTO procedures, and locking out and tagging out equipment. By the end, you should be able to explain the purpose of LOTO, describe the differences between primary and stored forms of energy, provide examples of LOTO devices, and describe the basic steps of performing LOTO. To protect workers, a passing mark of 80% is required for the hazardous energy lockout tagout course. A final exam will be given at the end of the course, and participants will receive a certificate of completion. You will know all practices and procedures pertaining to Lockout Tagout.
