Electrical Lockout/Tag Out Procedures

NFPA 70E LOTO Training for Electric Safety

Electrical Lock Out Tag for TrainingElectrical accidents and LOTO violations are among the top citations issued to businesses by OSHA. Dealing with electricity or any hazardous energy requires specific lockout/tag out procedures. Electrical LOTO protects workers from accidental electrocution and workplaces from expensive OSHA fines. TC Risk Management NFPA 70E electrical safety training covers LOTO procedures use on the job.

How Does Electrical LOTO Work?

Electricity is considered a hazardous energy by OSHA and work around electrical equipment requires a special lockout/tag out procedure. Employees first shut off electrical power of the equipment and use a special lock to prevent power being restored until the lock is removed. The lock makes it physically impossible to restore power. A tag is used to indicate who placed the lock and when. As long as the lock remains on the device the electricity remains off.

LOTO systems can be customized for your workplace. Sign-out systems, multi-person locks, and even the color of the locks can be modified for your facility. Our safety policy writing ensures everyone is on the same page with safety procedure.
