Electrical Safety and Lockout/Tagout (LOTO)

Imagine a piece of equipment that has energized electrical parts. You have to make a repair. If the machine has power while you are working on it, you could be electrocuted. Given the following options, which would you prefer? You can turn the machine off and hope no one starts it while you are working; you can turn the machine off, unplug it, and put up a sign asking people not to turn it on; or you can turn the machine off, lock it so that no one can power it on, and tag it so that everyone knows you are working on it and should stay away. Which one would you choose? The safest option is the third option. When it comes to electrical safety, it’s worth taking the time to lock and tag equipment to prevent injuries or even death. This course is going to provide you with important information about electrical safety and lockout/tagout steps so that you can make smart choices.
