Lockout/Tagout

It takes everyone to make a safe work environment.  We have all seen the signs, “Do Not Operate”, but we are just going to move that equipment a little bit – what harm can that be?  Unfortunately far too many accidents occur as a result of neglect or failure to comply with Lockout/Tagout procedure.

Without a thorough understanding of the procedures associated with this, workers will unnecessarily continue to put themselves or others in harm’s way.  In order to avoid this, they need a comprehensive training course; one that covers all of who, what, where, when, why and how questions.
