Lockout Tagout Training (LOTO)

Lock Out Tag OutThe Lockout/ Tagout training certification course prepares your employees to be in compliance and follow all procedures. Lockout Tagout (LOTO) in hazardous energy control is a unique course, in that our lockout/ tagout training course is customized for people with illiteracy in the workplace. Our course reduces LOTO training time by 50%, saving company time and money while your employees get fully trained and prepared for locking out machinery such as punch presses.

With a dedicated staff of professional trainers we teach all the participants / employees OSHA procedures in controlling hazardous energy, and how to effectively control energized equipment in the workplace.

The purpose of lockout is to safely identify and prevent the accidental release of “hazardous energy” that can result in workplace injuries and death. Lockout is always used during maintenance, cleaning, re[pairs and replacement of machinery, during which normal control measures may not be working and new hazards can occur.

This lockout/ tagout  training certified course will teach the procedures and importance of the supervisor's role in ensuring compliance, review legal applications / ramifications, and OHSA related fines, penalties.

We also offer complimenting programs in power presses certification, punch presses, machine guard training and accident investigations training. Combined with our consulting services and a number of workplace development programs we can assist you in operating your company more efficiently. We take great pride in helping companies keep the workplace safe.
