Control of Hazardous Energy (Lockout/Tagout)

Posted on by

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), failure to control hazardous energy accounts for nearly 1 in 10 serious accidents in the workplace. These accidents are preventable.

This course is designed for engineers, maintenance workers, or supervisors who are responsible for the servicing and maintenance of machines and equipment in which the unexpected energization or startup of the machines or equipment, or release of stored energy, could harm employees and what they need to know in order to effectively and safely do their job. Topics covered include: types of energy and their hazards, electrical safety basics, Federal/State requirements, contractor coordination, six steps for lockout and lock out devices. Course can be general or tailored to a specific operation/facility.

Emergency Reporting

Making notifications of an oil spill or a release of hazardous materials to federal, state, and local agencies can be confusing and daunting.  It does not need to be.  We all hope to never have the need to make these calls; however, if placed in that position, wouldn’t it be great to be well prepared and to have had training first?  In this video we demonstrate how to make the required notifications to the National Response Center, the State Emergency Response Commission, and the Local Emergency Planning Committee.  You will know what to expect and how to plan for these calls by seeing it done.

iWorkWise has developed this computer-based training to introduce workers to hearing conservation and the risk of hearing loss.

Exposure to loud noise damages the inner ear and can result in permanent hearing loss. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) twenty-two million workers are exposed to potentially damaging noise at work each year. Although hearing loss is common, it is entirely preventable. This training module provides information on hearing conservation, how much noise is too much, how to protect from permanent hearing loss, and how to use hearing protection equipment.

Course length is approximately 15 minutes and results in a certificate of training.
