LOCK OUT / TAG OUT TRAINING (CLASSROOM 4 HOURS)
Lock Out / Tag Out Training in Vancouver BC. Every year, workers in British Columbia are killed or seriously injured because machinery or equipment was not properly locked out. For example, accidents where workers are caught in machinery can result in severed fingers, crushed limbs, or death. Accidents can be prevented if machinery is locked out properly before obstructions are cleared or other maintenance work is done. Electrical shock, burns, and electrocution can also result if electrical equipment is not properly locked out.
Equipment that is not de-energized and locked out can unexpectedly start when maintenance work is being done, which can result in serious injuries. De-energization is the removing of energy from machinery or equipment. Lockout is the use of lock(s) to render machinery or equipment inoperable or to isolate an energy source in accordance with a written procedure. Maintenance is any work performed to keep machinery or equipment in a safe operating condition. This includes installing, repairing, cleaning, and lubricating the equipment, as well as clearing obstructions to the normal flow of material.
This half day 4 hour course, will explain the importance of lock-out in protecting workers who operate machinery and equipment in BC. This course will also cover specific procedures on how to protect employees from unexpected energization or start-up of machinery and equipment, or the release of hazardous energy during service or maintenance activities.
