OSHA’s standard 1910.147 titled “The Control of Hazardous Energy” requires employers to establish a written Energy Control Program. This program categorizes three types of workers as related to lockout/tagout operations: authorized workers, affected workers, and other workers. The only employees who may perform lockout/tagout operations are Authorized Employees and they are the focus of this program. During interviews and instruction, viewers will see how important it is for authorized employees to perform a lockout/tagout correctly and safely.

After watching the program, the participant should be able to explain the following:

  • What is lockout/tagout;
  • The three types of workers listed in OSHA’s standard and their differences;
  • The responsibilities of an authorized employee;
  • How to perform a shutdown and drain all energy;
  • How to verify a lockout;
  • What to do when returning equipment to service.
