Course overview

Electricity helps turn heavy-duty tasks into light work with the use of machines that harness energy and put it to good use. But because that’s so normal, it’s easy to forget that electricity is both powerful and dangerous. Hazardous energy contained within machinery creates a very dangerous environment, which can seriously, or even fatally, injure people

When machinery stops working, or needs maintenance, it’s vital that workers have the correct equipment and procedures to carry out their jobs safely. And that’s where lockout/tagout comes in.
