Every year in Canada, workers are injured or killed because equipment, machinery or processes were not properly locked out. Lockout is used during operations such as maintenance, repair, cleaning and replacement of machinery, during which normal control measures may not be working, and new hazards may occur.

The purpose of lockout is to identify and prevent the accidental release of "hazardous energy" that can result in workplace injuries and deaths.

Topics include:

  • What is Hazardous Energy?
  • Hazardous Energy Sources in the Workplace
  • What is Lockout?
  • Importance and Purpose of Lockout
  • When to Lock Out
  • How to Implement Lockout
  • Elements of Hazardous Energy Control
  • Training Requirements

Upon completion of this course you will know how to:

  • Recognize hazardous energy sources and the potential for workplace injuries
  • Understand what Lockout is and how it controls hazardous energy
  • Know when Lockout should be used and how it should be done
  • Recognize that workplace programs and training are needed in workplaces

Average time to complete this course is about 50-60 minutes.
