Certification for OSHA 29 CRF 1910.147
Who Needs this Training?
All employees who operate equipment in areas where lockout tagout is being performed, as well as any employees who service or maintain such equipment are required to complete this training to satisfy OSHA standard 29 CFR 1910.147.
Dangers of Remaining Uncertified
The importance of Lockout and Tagout programs:
- Preventing the unexpected startup or release of energy from machines and equipment during servicing or maintenance.
- Employees face severe injuries, such as amputations, fractures, or even death if this hazardous energy is not controlled.
- Not only are these procedures essential for employee safety, they are required.
- Lockout-tagout is one of the top ten most frequently cited standards during worksite inspections in the United States, resulting in large fines to cited businesses.
- There are around 3,000 citations for lockout-tagout violations a year. The majority of those citations are in manufacturing facilities.
