Who is Lock Out Tag Out Training for?
LOTO training is for anybody working with or around equipment especially people who could enter equipment work envelopes intentionally or accidentally. The course is especially relevant to Machine Operators, Maintenance personnel, and Machinists. We recommend training while on-boarding employees into at-risk roles, plus refresher training at least every 12 months. OSHA requires energy control procedure be separately inspected at least annually. Employees should also be retrained at least internally any time their work instructions are changed especially in any way with LOTO or other safety ramifications.

Lock Out Tag Out Training Course Overview:
Lock Out Tag Out training helps Austin students avoid injury by zeroing out or controlling energy sources before entering a machine's work envelope. We have been in plants with fatalities and serious injuries; amputations, etc. Safety is no joke. But we still see it being treated that way in more than half of the factories we visit: totally exposed pinch points, Operators intentionally defeating safety devices, working in machines while the machine remains energized. And for no reason other than "convenience". Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) is a topic that needs to be continually reinforced. We are zealous about safety. Our trainers have the experience and right attitude about safety to deliver.
