1.11 Lock, Tag, Try: Authorized Employees 2021 (2Hrs)

Workers servicing or maintaining machines or equipment may obtain serious or fatal injuries if hazardous energy is not properly controlled. In this training, participants will learn the OSHA Lock, Tag, Try standards which require the adoption and implementation of practices and procedures to shut down equipment, isolate it from its energy source(s), and prevent the release of potentially hazardous energy while maintenance and servicing activities are being performed. 

This lesson for authorized employees enables them to identify and establish a means of control to prevent the release of stored energy or the unintentional energizing/starting of machinery or equipment which could harm employees. This program establishes performance requirements for the control of hazardous energy.

Employers are required to meet minimum performance requirements and meet certain criteria for establishing and effective Lock, Tag, Try Program, however, they also have the flexibility to develop programs that are suitable for their organizations and personnel. 

Δ Annual recertification may be required depending on the worksite regulations.
